Sunderland managed to secure all three points against Plymouth Argyle yesterday in what was a very accomplished performance from Jack Ross’ side.
The Black Cats will have their sights set on securing automatic promotion and the League One title after moving into second position with a game in hand. Although, it appears as if one of the club’s star men is attracting interest, as according to Sun Sport, Manchester City are interested in Sunderland’s Bali Mumba.
Chelsea and Manchester City are battling to sign Sunderland teen Bali Mumba.
Spies from both clubs saw the 17-year-old dazzle in the FA Youth Cup at Halifax on Wednesday.
He did sign a pro deal recently but that is not stopping the vultures from circling.
City were in pole position for the England youth player and are willing to pay around £2.5 million for him.
However, now Chelsea are keen too.
Bali Mumba has been one of the standout performers for Sunderland in the current campaign, so it comes as no surprise that Premier League clubs are taking an interest.
Indeed, the Black Cats could be resigned to losing him in the future with Manchester City and Chelsea interested, with some extra funds in January possibly helping their promotion push.
