Manchester City is on a dream run & extended its winning run to a record-setting 16 games with a demolition of Tottenham Hotspur at the Etihad stadium.
City have a deal in place for Libertad Asuncion youngster Jesus Medina for a fee of €3.4m next month.
The 20-year-old, who has represented Paraguay at under-17 and under-20 level and made his debut for the senior side against Mexico this year, is expected to be sent on loan to Girona or New York City FC.
Joan Patsy is in charge of CFG’s South American recruitment, having been recruited from Barcelona by technical director Txiki Begiristain. Patsy played a large role in the signing of Gabriel Jesus which has been a brilliant move for the team. Who knows, how this “Jesus move” will work.
Danish side Copenhagen are also in the chase for the winger, according to Futbol a lo Grande in the star’s homeland but City is excepted to seal the deal soon.
Medina’s father, Francisco, told ABC Cardinal: “The MLS has grown a lot. If he leaves, he will go to New York City for a year and then he will see if Manchester City takes him.
“The United States club had several good players like Andrea Pirlo; I understand that the president of the City is handling it.”
Recently, a second-string Manchester City side made it through to the semi-finals of the EFL Cup with a penalty victory over Leicester at the King Power Stadium.
“What is important is how we reacted,” Guardiola said after the win. “Whether it was a penalty or not, the referee is there and the TV is there, so the important thing is how we reacted. We could have gone down because it was the last minute and it was tough, especially with a lot of young players.”
