Manchester City have won the race to acquire the services of the highly-rated winger Kayky. They have reached an agreement with Brazilian side Fluminense for the 17-year-old player’s transfer, the Premier League leaders said. He will remain with the Brazilian Serie A outfit until their end of the current season. City must be happy to finalise the transfer of Kayky as the teenager was on the radar of multiple European clubs.

Kayky, who has drawn comparisons with Paris St Germain forward Neymar, has scored two goals in eight games for Fluminense in their state championship. Quite recently, he played in the club’s Copa Libertadores clash with River Plate.

Manchester City said in a statement: “We are delighted to confirm we have reached an agreement with Fluminense regarding the future transfer of Kayky.”

Injury boost for Man City

Star striker Sergio Aguero and playmaker Kevin De Bruyne could play a part for Manchester City in the Carabao Cup final against Tottenham at Wembley on Sunday.

Owing to a muscular injury, Aguero has missed the last four games, while De Bruyne limped out of their FA Cup semifinal loss to Chelsea with an ankle problem.

However, one player who will miss for sure is defender John Stones, who was suspended following his sending off against Aston Villa in the midweek.

Meanwhile, Tottenham’s major concern would be about the fitness of their forward Harry Kane. The striker is battling an ankle injury suffered against Everton last week. Ben Davies looks to be out of the final with an ankle problem.
