Manchester City sent an official representative to monitor the Copa Colombia second leg between Independiente Medellin and Deportivo Cali on November 7th, according to reports.
According to Scouts in Attendance, who have an encouraging reputation in the overall coverage of scouting representation across world football, City officials were sent to monitor the high-profile game in Colombia earlier this month.
The match saw Indepediente Medellin come out as the victors on aggregate, winning 2-1 on the night and 4-3 on aggregate after a 2-2 draw from the first leg on November 2nd.
Despite no particular player being mentioned as the individual/s being monitored by the Premier League champions, Scouts in Attendance highlighted three key names that were in action that City may have been looking out for.
The three names in question were Andres Balanta (19, defensive midfielder), Andres Arroyo (17, attacking midfielder/forward), and Deiber Caicedo (19, forward).
Manchester City have been reportedly monitoring a number of high-profile events involving young prospects in the last few months, which doesn’t come as a surprise given the club’s hierarchy’s aims to maintain their spot at the very top of club football for the future.
