Manchester City and City Football Group have reportedly opened talks with Brazilian side Fluminense over two of their most promising attacking talents at present, according to the latest reports to emerge from South America.
The latest claims align themselves very much with the plan of the City Football Group - which is to recruit players from all corners of the globe at a very young age, before raising them at any of the numerous clubs within their portfolio, ultimately with the end goal being to sell on for profit, or promote into the Manchester City set-up.
Claims from Brazil on Wednesday evening have stated that the City Football Group have now opened talks with Brazilian side Fluminense over two players: Kayky (17) and Metinho (17).
Globo Esporte report that the former is a target for Manchester City themselves, while the latter would start at another team within the City Football Group. However, it is clarified that Fluminense have offered both players new three-year contracts with the club, but are yet to hear back from the relevant representatives.
Both players have also recently been linked with Liverpool and Shakhtar Donetsk, with the latter said to have made a €5 million proposal, rising to a possible €15 million, for Kayky.
CFG have been very busy over the past 12 months, recruiting the likes of Diego Rosa, Yan Couto, and Kluiverth Aguilar - all of whom now have agreements over temporary moves to the likes of Girona and Lommel S.K. within the group's portfolio.
