Manchester City will pip Manchester United to the signing of English youngster Jack Harrison, according to the Daily Mail.
City apparently have first refusal on the forward and will likely make a move for the starlet. Harrison was part of United’s academy since the age of 14, but due to City’s relationship with current club New York City FC they will be given priority.
Harrison recently earned a late call up to the England U’21 squad, and recalled how he found out: “I wasn’t expecting this call-up at all.”
Before our game on Saturday, Patrick pulled me to one side and said, “I’m not supposed to tell you until after the match, but you’ve been called up by England Under 21s.”
I said, “You’re lying!” I was so excited.
Harrison has been in inspired form for his side this year and has impressed in the MLS; a league continually improving in quality and competition.
The forward is clearly a good prospect and will be attracted by a return to England, despite him making a name for himself in America.
If City pip United to his signature it will not just represent clever business, but also allow the Citizens to gain one on their historic rivals.
