Manchester City have confirmed the signing of starlet Kayky from Fluminense, who will join following the conclusion of the domestic Brazilian season.
The Manchester club confirmed the news on their social media accounts on Friday afternoon, despite spelling Kayky’s current club wrong!
Their tweet read: We are delighted to confirm we have reached an agreement with Fluminese regarding the future transfer of Kayky. The teenage forward will remain with Fluminese until the end of the Brazilian season.
The 17-year-old’s stock has risen exponentially over the past few months, having scored two goals and assisted one in eight appearances for Fluminense.
Kayky also scored a sensational solo goal against Nova Iguaçu this season, taking on multiple defenders before placing the ball past the goalkeeper.
While still relatively unknown, it is reported that Manchester City will reportedly pay £8.5million for his services, with the fee potentially increasing to £15million.
