Manchester City have set their sights on acquiring the promising talent of Sunderland’s goalkeeper, Matty Young, according to reports.
The Sun has revealed that the 16-year-old shot-stopper has emerged as a target for Manchester City, who have closely monitored his progress, including his participation in the first team during preseason.
Currently occupying the position of the third-choice goalkeeper at Sunderland, Young has established himself as a regular presence with the U21 squad. Over the course of this season, he showcased his abilities in Premier League 2, participating in three matches and managing to secure two clean sheets, a testament to his growing potential.
To further underline their confidence in his abilities, Sunderland secured Young’s commitment with a new two-year contract prior to the start of the season. However, recent reports suggest that the club is open to parting ways with the young goalkeeper if the right offer comes along.
