Arsenal, Spurs battle for wantaway Man City starlet

Arsenal, Spurs battle for wantaway Man City starlet

Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are circling after contract talks between Jadon Sancho and Manchester City broke down, throwing his future into doubt.

Arsenal and Tottenham both have a long-standing interest in the player, with the latter attempting to include Sancho in the deal which saw Kyle Walker move to the Etihad Stadium.

There are fears that City could lose their young star Jadon Sancho, meanwhile, after Pep Guardiola, the City head coach, chose to leave the 17-year-old winger at home rather than bring him on tour in the USA.

While The Mirror has claimed that Arsenal are "long-term" admirers of the English winger, North London rivals Tottenham were reported to have tried to sign the 17-year-old earlier this summer.

Neymar 'very happy' to stay at Barcelona despite PSG rumors, says teammate
A move there would see Neymar link back up with close pal - and would smash the £89m transfer record. "We are so happy to have a player like Neymar at Barcelona ".

City have offered Sancho a huge contract for a player of his age, worth £30,000-a-week, a sign of just how highly he is rated by club staff.

The Independent also reports that City are sure that Sancho will not be leaving them this summer.

He was scheduled to go on City's current pre-season tour of the United States, so it was a big surprise he was left behind when the rest of his squad flew out on Monday. But Sancho has still not put pen to paper, believing he could play first-team football sooner at another club and fearing his pathway to Pep Guardiola's first-team is blocked.

The story reflects the difficulty many youngsters have in trying to break into Man City's first team from their academy.
