Manchester City are keeping tabs on Steaua Bucharest wonderkid Florinel Coman, according to a report by the Daily Mail.
Florinel Coman, who has been likened to France and PSG star Kylian Mbappe, plays for Steaua Bucharest – the first team Pep Guardiola ever faced in Europe as Manchester City manager. The 21-year-old has six goals and five assists in eleven games for the club so far this season.
The player was also part of the side that knocked England out of last summer’s U21 European Championships – scoring a brace in a shocking 4-2 victory that day.
However, it’s worth noting that the Mbappe comparisons come from Steaua Bucharest owner Gigi Becali, who is known for his controversial statements and was sentenced to three years in jail in 2013 for fraudulent acts.
If Manchester City are interested, it’s reported that they won’t be without competition – as both AS Roma and West Ham are also said to be monitoring the player.
