The teenager is currently too young to move to a European club but the deal gives the Citizens the option to sign him in the future if he continues to develop, with City thoroughly impressed by the youngster during a recent trial with the Premier League giants.
Metro claim that the three-year agreement will result in Vitinho moving to the Premier League in 2018, when the player is expected to have developed into one of the finest prospects in South American football.
