Manchester City are making ‘huge strides’ in their efforts to sign two of European football’s most highly-rated young talents, according to The Sun.
16-year-old Juventus starlet, Moise Kean, who was recently called up for first-team duty, has been regularly linked with a move to the Etihad in recent weeks. The Italy under-17 striker is said to be one of the most exciting players of his age group in world football, with both City and Arsenal wanting to lure him to England.
One potential complication is that his agent is Mino Raiola, who has had previous issues with Pep Guardiola, and once said Pep didn’t “have the balls” to sit down with him. Raiola represents Zlatan Ibrahimović, who did not get along with Guardiola at Barcelona, and Raiola, in his own words, does not like the Catalan boss.
Despite that, The Sun claims that City are desperate to sign him, with money no object to land him in January or the summer. Juventus are eager to hold on to one of their prized jewels and want him to sign a new contract.
A less complex deal could see South Korean wonderkid, Kangin Lee, leave La Liga side Valencia for City next summer. The 15-year-old, who is very highly thought of in Spain and Asia, is expected to join City when he turns 16 next year, The Sun reports.
Manchester City now have one of the best academies in the world, and in addition to many promising local talents, are aggressively scouting the globe for more prospects to add to the ranks. Could Moise Kean and Kangin Lee be next to join Pep Guardiola’s revolution?
