Despite not wanting to extend Poveda’s contract, City want to sell to a club they have good relations with. The Scottish Champions are one of those clubs and the report claims Manchester City have made contact about a deal.
Torino and Leeds United are in also interested in signing Poveda. The prior have even showed the youngster around their training ground after last weekend’s game against Bologna.
The deal with Celtic would reportedly involve a low buy-back clause, however, the fee to bring Poveda to Scotland would either be relatively low, or even free.
Poveda has struggled to make a significant impact in the first team at Manchester City, with various opportunities given in the Carabao Cup.
