Nwakali’s senior brother, Allwell told africanfootball.com that the youngster will be named in the first team squad.
The Nigerian youngster has not played in official games for the Premier League team and has been sent out on loan since he signed for them three years ago.
“The only thing stopping Chidiebere from playing for the Manchester City first team is work permit,” Allwell said.
“Manchester City have plans for him because he was here (in Nigeria) for just a week and they called him back but in the end, they will be the ones to decide where he plays.”
Interestingly, Chidiebere Nwakali is represented by Pere Guardiola, who is the younger brother of new City boss, Pep Guardiola.
