Sao Paulo, Oct 18 (IANS) English football giants Manchester City have invited Brazilian teenager Victor Moura to train with the club and could secure a first refusal option on the midfielder.

The 15-year-old took part in a 10-day trial with the English Premier League (EPL) outfit earlier this month, scoring for the Sky Blues in an under-16 match against Newcastle, Xinhua reported.

Moura is currently a part of Corinthians’ youth academy and is expected to sign his first professional contract with the city-based club in January. “Their intention is to monitor our youth players,” Corinthians director Augusto Melo said. “In relation to Victor, in time they may get a purchasing option for him.” According to Melo, Corinthians also hope to benefit from closer ties with City by sending a coach to the English club’s academy next year.

 

“We want to see how they develop their players and use the experience for our own training purposes,” Melo said.
