Manchester City parent-owned City Football Group has begun to corner the South American transfer market to secure young talent for their respective teams.
Kayky recently left Brazil to join Manchester City this summer instead of waiting until January. Now it looks like they have a new target on their list that they are currently monitoring.
Spanish media WHAT informs City Football Group has acquired one of the young jewels of Uruguayan football in Nicolás Siri. The 17-year-old will play for Montevideo City Torque this season after the deal cost them 3.1 million euros for 70 percent of the players’ rights.
Siri has seen a drop in form in recent months, but City Football Group is betting on its potential, which in the past caught the attention of several European clubs such as FC Barcelona.
At 17, Siri has plenty of time to develop before the group decides if it can make the leap to Europe and either Manchester City or ES Troyes AC players.
