Marlos Moreno ‘very close’ to Manchester City

Atletico Nacional coach Reinaldo Rueda has claimed that Colombian sensation Marlos Moreno is “very close” to completing his move to Manchester City.

The 19-year old forward, who is currently participating at the Copa Libertadores, has been widely linked with Manchester City with reports suggesting that a deal has already been wrapped up.

“Everything with Marlos is very close” claimed his club coach Reinaldo Reuda. “It is a decision that has been made by his agent and representatives.”

However, with Atletico holding a 2-0 first leg advantage over Sao Paulo in the semi-final, Reuda hopes his star player remains focused at the task at hand: “We need and I hope he does not isolate himself from our goal [of reaching the final].”

Manchester City beat several top European clubs for his signature in a deal worth £8.32m according to The Mirror. He is expected to be instantly loaned out to Spain with Deportivo La Coruna reportedly at the front of the queue.
