Manchester City are believed to be pondering a relationship with French Ligue 2 club AC Arles-Avignon.

AC Arles president Jean-Marc Conrad has revealed he has met with City officials in regards to the possibility of striking up a partnership in the future with the cashed-up English club.

"At present we have met several times but nothing has yet been settled," Conrad told Le Dauphine Libere.

"We have agreed that Manchester City representatives will come visit our facilities, this will happen on Thursday.

"But it is still too early to talk about a partnership."
