Mexican prodigy Raul Mendiola set for Man City trials

Mexican prodigy Raul Mendiola is wanted by Manchester City.

Boss Roberto Mancini has handed a six-week trial to the US-based striker, 17, who impressed City scouts during a tournament.

Mendiola, formerly with Mexican side Pachuca, now plays for Arsenal - the youth team of Californian club Alta Loma.

And the teenager's mum, Claudia Velador, said: "Raul will spend six weeks on trial with Manchester City.

"He's been training with their reserves and academy for a fortnight. They've looked after him well and he is very happy there."
