Man City willing to pay fee to Sporting CP for Rafael Leao

Manchester City are in advanced talks with Sporting CP prospect Rafael Leao.

Jornal de Notícias says City are in talks to sign Portuguese striker Rafael Leao this summer.

City are poised to agree a deal for the Sporting Lisbon forward in the coming weeks.

Leao is out of contract at the Portuguese giants this summer and it is suggested he will reject any offers to stay at the club in an effort to secure a move overseas.

The 19-year-old is a bright prospect in Portugal and it is suggested City are willing to pay Sporting a fee in order to avoid any legal ramifications.
