Juventus plot audacious raid for Manchester City prodigy

    According to the British news outlet, Mirror, Juventus have set their sights on highly-rated Manchester City youngster Phil Foden.

    The 18-year-old midfielder has emerged as one of the hottest prospects in European football following his outstanding displays in the UEFA Youth League with the Citizens.

    Although he turned 18 only this year, Foden has already collected 17 outings under Pep Guardiola, having shown some glimpses of his potential with the senior team.

    Known for his energy, vision, and passing ability, the England U-21 international has been projected as a natural heir of David Silva.

    However, the player who moved through the ranks at the Etihad Stadium has a notable flaw in his current contract, with many major European clubs looking to take advantage of it.

    As things stand, Foden can leave Manchester City for just £175,000, with the Bianconeri residing as the principal candidates to acquire his services.

    With the transfers of Paul Pogba, Blaise Matuidi, Emre Can, and Sami Khedira, the current Serie A holders have demonstrated they know how to secure high-profile signings with minimal expenditures.

    On the other hand, Guardiola appears to be a huge fan of Foden, whom he plans to integrate into the first-team in the forthcoming future.

    However, the Spaniard has to come up with an idea how to bind his starlet before it’s too late, as the Citizens would hardly reconcile with a loss similar to the one of Jadon Sancho, who joined Borussia Dortmund a year ago.
