Divine Mukasa Transfer News
Man City are on the verge of signing a top young West Ham player, according to Fabrizio Romano in a new shattering blow.
Manchester City appear to be obsessed with signing West Ham players at the moment.
Man City saw a bid for Declan Rice fail before pulling out of a summer move for Hammers star Lucas Paqueta.
The Premier League winners, who rallied from behind to defeat West Ham 3-1 on Saturday, then completed a surprise signing of released defender Jamal Baptiste.
West Ham youth coach Carlton Cole once dubbed the highly-rated teenage England center-back the “new Rio Ferdinand.”
Before signing Baptiste, transfer writer Fabrizio Romano claimed it was part of Man City’s effort to assemble and “develop the best youngsters in Europe.”
The mega-rich Etihad side is at it again.
Because Manchester City is about to sign another fantastic young West Ham player, says Romano in a new shattering blow.

According to Romano, Manchester City are likely to buy England Under 17 midfielder Divine Mukasa from West Ham.
He’s even given the move his signature ‘Here we go’.
“Manchester City poised to sign talented England U17 midfielder Divine Mukasa from West Ham — here we go, confirmed,” stated Romano.
“Long-term agreement reached; formalized in the next 48 hours.”
“City continue to pursue top talent as their Academy remains an important part of the club’s project.”
Since teams like #ManchesterCity can simply recruit the greatest young players, having an academy in the modern game seems unnecessary.
