Manchester City: Fans have mixed views on Jayden Braaf’s potential

Manchester City: Fans have mixed views on Jayden Braaf’s potential - Manchester City

Plenty of Manchester City fans have been discussing the potential of rising star Jayden Braaf, with a mixture of views on the teenage prospect.

Twitter channel @CityChiefPlus posted a compilation of highlights from the 17-year-old, who has impressed for the club’s youth teams in recent months.

The Dutch winger has struck 11 goals in 26 appearances at underage level for Manchester City this season, including nine goals in 16 games in Premier League 2. He has been likened to former Etihad youth prospect Jadon Sancho, who has gone on toΒ star for Borussia Dortmund and win senior England caps. A scout report on Braaf in the Daily Mail described him as a “powerfully built” youngster with a “surge of pace” and a maturity beyond his years.

It will be compelling to see what the future holds for the 17-year-old at the Etihad and whether he can emulate another winger in Leroy Sane, a two-time Premier League winner currently attracting transfer interest from Bayern Munich; or end up like Brandon Barker, who made only one senior appearance for the club before going to Rangers, where he has been frequently criticised this season.

Which of these is more likely to happen to Jayden Braaf at Man City?

Hit like Sane

Flop like Barker

These Manchester City fans on Twitter had mixed views on Braaf’s future – one optimistically told Sane to “step aside” for the teenager while one dismissed him as “another Brandon Barker”. Check out some of the replies from the Etihad faithful below:
