Manchester City chase Croatian wonder kid
Talksport claim Premier League leaders are chasing a deal to bring Croatian wonder kid Alen Halilovic to the Etihad Stadium in January.
Sixteen year old Halilovic currently plies his trade in his home country with Dinamo Zagreb and became the clubs youngest ever debutant aged just 16 years and 102 days after appearing against Hajduk Split in September.
The teenager then went on to become the leagues youngest ever scorer after finding the net against Slaven Belupo, once again coming off the bench. Halilovic has already made his European debut as well – a late cameo against PSG in a 4-1 defeat.
Complements have even reached the stage where he has been likened to Barcelona star, Lionel Messi. Manchester City will reportedly send a three man delegation to Croatia in the coming months to try and complete a deal, ahead of arch rivals, Machester United.
Halilovic currently has two goals in five outings for his current club as well as two goals for Croatia’s Under 17 side.
