Japanese starlet Hideki Ishige has been invited to trial with Manchester City.
The 18-year old Shimizu S-Pulse midfielder had emerged as a transfer target for City but his current club boss, Afshin Ghotbi, insists the player is simply going to train with the Premier League champions.
"If you want to build top-class players, you have to give them various experiences and opportunities to see first-hand what the world level is about," Ghotbi told Japan's Kyodo News.
Ghotbi added: "There is interest in him, not just Man City but many clubs in Europe and he deserves it. He's a real fantastic talent.
"As far as I'm concerned, he's not for sale and we want him to be a part of S-Pulse for the next few years to come. There has been no offer, City just want to see him and we are doing the same with other players with other clubs."
