Manchester City are ready to beat rivals in the chase for 16-year-old attacking prodigy Luca Fletcher from Reading.
According to the Daily Mail, Manchester City are keen on Reading starlet Luca Fletcher. The Premier League champions intend to sign the 16-year-old attacking prodigy and beat their rivals for the Reading star’s signature.
Manchester City find themselves in a dream position as the season ends. They became Premier League champions at the weekend, even before they kicked the ball against Chelsea.
They are also in the FA Cup and Champions League finals, with Pep Guardiola’s side the favourites to win the treble. While that guarantees them a place in history books, they are still about to continue their relentless pursuit of success.
Manchester City plan to strengthen this side, with some key players likely to arrive in the summer. However, in the last few years, the Cityzens have continually focused on improving their young squads and are on the verge of completing multiple deals.
They are close to agreeing on a deal for Spike Brits, the exciting goalkeeping talent from Ross County. They are also chasing another keeper in 17-year-old French star Lisandru Olmeta from AS Monaco. And Manchester City also want to focus on different areas of their academy squads, with attacking and midfield reinforcements on their list.
Arsenal’s Ethan Nwaneri remains a key target, with the Gunners doing everything to retain the youngster. Moving to the attacking side of things, Manchester City are targeting some of the brightest youngsters. Their scouts continue to lead the charge in bringing some prospects to the attention of their club chiefs.
Brazilian winger Matheus Goncalves remains a target. Now Manchester City have set sights on Reading’s 16-year-old attacking prodigy Luca Fletcher. The attacker usually prefers to play the centre-forward role, which has yielded 20 goals for Reading’s youth sides and England U16s.
Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing him and have opened talks over a £1 million deal with Reading. The 16-year-old attacking prodigy remains a massive prospect for the future. The club chiefs hope the attacker is fast-tracked into the first team in the coming years.
Many expect Fletcher to have an impact like Rico Lewis, who has been excellent in his breakthrough season. Manchester City are already planning on handing the 18-year-old a new deal after an impressive campaign. As for Fletcher, they will look to agree on a deal sooner and get the player on board for the youth sides.
