Paraguayan superkid Fernando Ovelar watched by Man City

Paraguayan superkid Fernando Ovelar is interesting Manchester City.

The Mirror says Ovelar scored in Paraguay's Superclasico last weekend — even though he is just 14 years old.

Cerro Porteno striker Ovelar, who is still two months short of his 15th birthday, netted the opening goal against their arch-rivals Olimpia, having made his senior debut a week earlier.

Ovelar is the youngest ever player to feature in Paraguay's top division and it is understood Premier League champions City have been watching his progress, and had a scout at the Superclasico.

Paraguay are expected to call him up soon for their Under-18s side.
