Colo Colo whizkid Branco Provoste excited by Man City offer

Chilean whizkid Branco Provoste has been offered tests by Manchester City.

The 15 year-old winger has been likened to Matias Fernandez by Colo Colo coaches and admits he was flattered by City's approach.

"They saw me play in the South America (championship) a few games, then another for Colo Colo and then contacted me," Branco told AS.

The teen admits the presence of Manuel Pellegrini convinced him to take the chance.

"I thank God for the chance. I had to take it."

Branco says he'll spend his time at City simply to learn.

"I'll keep working, continue to grow in football and as a person. This is an invitation and I take it with humility."
