Manchester City are close to signing the 17-year-old Brazilian player Kayky from Fluminense. The two clubs agreed a fee of €10m plus add-ons as well as 20% of any future sale in February and the deal is now expected to be confirmed by all parties.
The forward, who has been described as “the new Neymar” in Brazil, will arrive in June 2022, when he will be 18 years old. He is considered one of the best young talents in South America and has two goals in seven appearances in the Brazilian top flight this season.
City Football Group and Fluminense are also discussing whether Metinho, a 17-year-old midfielder, could be part of the deal.
City announced last month that Sergio Agüero will be leaving the club in the summer after 10 years. The Argentinian is City’s record scorer with 257 goals in 385 appearances.
