The next Paul Pogba? A billing heard many times before — but Manchester City have signed an England youth international compared to the Manchester United star.
According to The Sun, City have paid £300,000 — possibly rising all the way to £1 million — to sign 14 year old Darko Gyabi from Millwall.
Gyabi, who City believe can follow in Jadon Sancho’s footsteps, chose the English champions ahead of Arsenal and Wolves. He has been playing in Millwall’s under-16s team, two years above his age group.
The teenager is described as similar to Paul Pogba, big on talent, flair and skill. He comes from the same London estate as Sancho, who Man City lost to Borussia Dortmund last year and who is now a full England international.
Will Darko Gyabi turn out as good as Jadon? Time will tell — but City will hope to hold on to this one if he does.
