Man City set for Chrisantus talks - agent

Manchester City are set to hold talks with Nigerian starlet Macauley Chrisantus next week.

The 17-year-old striker was one of the stars of the recent World Under 17 championship as he helped Nigeria seal the title.

The youngster's agent, Adam Mohammed, confirmed that he and the player are set to hold talks with Sven Goran Eriksson.

"I can confirm Sven has written inviting myself and the boy for a discussion and we will be in England next week to conclude talks," he told the News of the World.

Mohammed admitted that an application for a work permit could be a stumbling block, but he voiced his optimism that one would be granted second time round.

"But there may be a snag with the issue if a work permit," he added.

"However, if it is refused first time we will get it second time if the club appeals."
