City he would have tied to the one they already nickname ‘new Neymar’. Is about Kayky, 17-year-old young forward who comes out of the quarry of Flamengo and with whom they have been talking for months with the aim of taking him to the Etihad Stadium, according to the English press this Wednesday.
Along with Kayky, who was raised in Rio but was soon caught by Fluminense scouts, City are also said to be interested in bringing Metinho. The pair were an integral part of the team that won the Brazilian Under-17 championship last year and finished runner-up in the category’s Brazilian Cup. On a personal basis, Kayky was the top scorer for Brasileirao.
That is why the Tricolor has placed a great price on the head of its precious pearl. For his technical quality and rhythm, Kayky has been compared to Neymar, although he plays mainly on the right wing. He also has a keen eye for goal, as evidenced by his goal statistics last season.
“Kayky is a player who stands out a lot for his technical quality, especially in the one-on-one game, and also for his quality in front of goal,” Fluminense U-17 coach Guilherme Torres told Goal.
