Manchester City: The club have completed a deal for young striker Zacharias Faour
Manchester City have completed a deal for young Malmo FF striker Zacharias Faour.
The 15-year-old has caught the eye in Sweden while representing the national team at youth level, with comparisons being made with PSG striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Faour will now link up with City's development squad for the time-being and he says he is relishing the opportunity of playing in England.
"What I can tell is that I have just moved to England to play for Manchester City," he told Fotbollskanalen.se.
"That will be fantastic and I really look forward to it. It is a big club with all the best players in every age group.
"I feel it is a perfect step for me to progress as a footballer and be as good as I can possibly be.
"I do not know what expectations the club have in me, but they have said that they have got confidence in me."
