City sign young Brazilian star

Manchester City have completed the signing of Brazilian teenager Kayky, although he will not join up with his new employers until next year when he turns 18.

The 17-year-old who currently plays for Fluminense has drawn comparisons with Neymar, and was also wanted by Liverpool, Shakhtar Donetsk and several clubs in Spain.

However, City have stolen a march on their rivals by agreeing a deal for an initial fee of £8.5 million. Add-ons may see that increase up to £15 million and Fluminense will also be entitled to a percentage of any add-on fee.

Kayky has scored twice in six appearances in the Brazilian state  championship this year.

Initially he will join up with City’s youth set-up, but then may be loaned out in order to gain valuable first-team experience.

City are also being linked with another Fluminense teenager, defensive midfielder Matinho, who. Like Kayky, is also 17 years old.
