City chase Portuguese ace

Time has been called in the Football Transfer Tavern but not before The Sun report that Manchester City are launching a bid to bring Portuguese wonder kid Bruma to the club.

It was understood that Roberto Mancini has tried to sign the Sporting Lisbon wide man in the previous transfer window but backed down after Sporting increased his release clause.

He has been dubbed ‘the new Cristiano Ronaldo’ after some outstanding displays for the Sporting B side but City refused to pay the £24 million release clause.

However reports have developed that the defending Premier League champions are ready to make a move again for the 18-year-old winger also known as Armindo Tue Na Bangna.

Whether or not the Portugal Under-19 international will be interested in moving to the Premier League in the near future remains to be seen after he recently declared himself happy with life in his home country but City’s interest could definitely change matters.

Is this a rumour to take the bar or one to put in the bin? Vote in our polls below.
