Man City in talks for Coritiba wing-back Abner

Manchester City are in advanced talks for Coritiba wing-back Abner.

A Bola says City are in negotiations for the left-sided fullback, who has been likened to Brazilian legend Roberto Carlos.

City will have to overcome Benfica to land the 17 year-old, with the Lisbon giants having first refusal on the Coritiba whizkid.

Coritiba and Benfica have developed a formal alliance in recent months.
