Dale boss Alan Buckley was keen to keep the 21-year-old for the rest of the season, but Shuker decided against extending his three-month stay.
"He's been a good player for us, so his loss is a big disappointment," Buckley told the club's official website.
"Although he expressed how much he'd enjoyed his time with us, he felt it would be in his best interests to return to Manchester City and try his luck there."
Buckley revealed he was working on two deals in a bid to bolster his squad.
"It is fair to say I'm working on two deals at the moment," added Buckley. "However both the potential signings will need a lot of work on our behalf."
