City appeals to youngster

Manchester City

Juan Fernando Quintero, who is on loan at Pescara from Atletico Nacional, has revealed his ambition to play for Manchester City.

The 19-year-old midfielder has attracted interest from a number of top European sides since leaving South America for a loan stint in Serie A.

Atletico Nacional will allow the playmaker to leave for a reported £8million but with the Colombia international already out on a loan deal, clubs will have to wait until the summer to secure a move.

Roberto Mancini has been quiet during the January transfer window and he may look to make some more substantial signings in order to try and bridge the seven-point gap between themselves and Manchester United.

“I dream Milan, Juventus, Manchester. I will choose with my family and my agent. I’m fine at Pescara, I like the fans and there my child Maria Jose was born,” said Quintero.
