Manchester City have one of the country’s hottest prospects in their youth set up, but attacking winger Jadon Sancho is reported to be on his way out of the club according to The Daily Mail– with Tottenham Hotspur one of the clubs ready to pounce.
That is a huge compliment considering he is just 17-years-old, but he is already setting the youth leagues alight and is considered a star of the future.

In his 35 games in City colours last season, Sancho netted 20 times and came up with eight assists.
Those goals came across the under 18’s Premier League, Premier League 2, FA Youth Cup and UEFA Youth League.
His progress seems to be going well at Man City, however his chances of breaking into the first team are slim due to a wealth of attacking talent at Pep Guardiola’s disposal.
That seems to be the main reason Sancho is looking to leave The Etihad Stadium, as he wants regular football in order to progress his career.
City seemed confident of tying down the youngster to a lucrative, long-term deal back in March, however in a u-turn of events he is now looking likely to exit the club.
Title rivals Tottenham are reported to be interested in his signature, with the North London club putting an emphasis on young players at the club.
Mauricio Pochettino has a great record of blooding young talent during his managerial tenure in England and Sancho may feel that his chances of Premier League football would be heightened with Spurs.
Tottenham are close to selling Kyle Walker to their title rivals and snatching the youngster from City would surely be treated with a smile by the Lilywhites support.
If Sancho is desperate for first-team football, the chances are he is not going to get it at City, as there are too many established players in his position.
Raheem Sterling is one of those, as the England international is one of the first names on Guardiola’s team sheet.
He would also have to muscle past David Silva, Kevin De Bruyne, Leroy Sane and Bernardo Silva, something which does not seem likely.
City will not give up without a fight and will be hoping they can change his mind, as at just 17-years-old he has a long career ahead of him.
