According to a recent report by AS, Manchester City is focusing its attention on trying to defeat Newcastle United by signing teenage sensation Facundo Pellistri. The 19-year-old is considered one of the most intriguing young women in world football today, with the Penarol winger recently attracting Pep Guardiola's attention.
The Magpies are unable to make an official move until their proposed acquisition is completed and, until then, City is more than happy to put their front foot in the front in an attempt to lure him into Etihad.
The city's transfer strategy over the past few years seems to be gradually shifting to a youth movement, instead of diving directly into buying some of the game's biggest names.
They will make this change with the likely intention of making Pellistri an integral part of their future plans.
