Manchester City could make a move for Valencia starlet Kang-in Lee following their success with Ferran Torres.
That’s according to Superdeporte journalist Rafa Marín, who covers the South Korean’s future today.
Torres joined Manchester City in a £20.7m deal this summer and has been a major success so far, with four goals and two assists in ten games.
His star continued to rise this week with an impressive performance in Spain’s 6-0 demolition of Germany, in which the 20-year-old bagged a hat-trick.
The deal is so far looking like a major bargain for City, and according to Marín, they are ‘ready to fish again in a troubled river’ and secure Kang-in Lee.
He explains that Lee, who is the hottest prospect at the club, is ‘getting Ferran’s face more and more’, which, in this case, means he is looking more and more likely to follow his route out of the club.
Torres refused to sign a new deal at the club after several failed attempts, a scenario which forced Valencia to sell on the cheap to Manchester City last summer.
Lee currently has two years left on his deal, and Marín says that ‘offers will not be lacking’, while ‘siren songs are flying’ already, starting with City.
Now, there is no suggestion that Manchester City have made a move as yet just that the interest is there and they could look to take advantage of the situation.
That’s hardly surprising given Torres’ success so far, and this is a rumour to keep an eye on in the coming months.
