'Man City Chase €25m Sporting Talent (18)'

Manchester City are reportedly about to table a €25m bid for Sporting Lisbon wonderkid Rafael Leão.

The striker is regarded as one of the most-promising attackers in Europe after his exploits in Portugal.

Chelsea are also interested in the 18-year-old hotshot - but Arab News claims the Citizens are attempting to steal a march on their rivals.

Leão, a Portugal Under-21 international, has burst onto the senior scene this season and scored 12 goals in 19 matches.
