Having already gone fishing for talent in Serbia with the purchases of Filip Stevanovic and Luka Ilic in the past, Manchester City are at it again.
According to Mozzart Sport in Serbia, Pep Guardiola’s side had a scout at Cukaricki’s game against Proleter, where they went to watch 17-year-old Bojan Kovačevic.
The young defender has started five of his team’s last six games, and has helped them go on a seven game unbeaten streak along the way.
This form and his clear talent is what has attracted the attention of many clubs, including Manchester City, Atalanta, RB Salzburg, Bordeaux and Parma.
In fact, Cukaricki are already bracing themselves for some offers, and have set a price for him, one that would beat their club record of €3m.
Amusingly enough, that has been set by the sale of Slobodan Tedic to Manchester City back in January of last year, and the Serbian side want €5m for Kovacevic.
We’ll have to wait and see if the Cityzens are willing to spend that much on the youngster, but if their past history is anything to go by, that shouldn’t be too much of a problem if they see enough to warrant it.
