RB Leipzig threaten to tempt Jayden Braaf away from Man City

Manchester City face a battle to keep hold of 17 year-old winger Jayden Braaf.

The Daily Mail says RB Leipzig, who currently top Germany's Bundesliga, made checks on Braaf during City's 2-1 FA Youth Cup victory over Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

The teen had a hand in both goals and his performances have earned rave reviews since he moved to City from PSV Eindhoven in 2018.

Braaf, who possesses electric pace and a handful of tricks, is of a similar ilk to Jadon Sancho, who left the Premier League champions for Borussia Dortmund.

City boss Pep Guardiola has watched Braaf closely during training sessions but the Dutchman has not managed to break into the senior group on a regular basis. Braaf's contract runs until 2023.
