Manchester City scout three year old

Manchester City are keen to land a new player... one who's just three years old. According to the Manchester Evening News, Guardiola's new club have taken the message of youth to heart and have contacted the mother of Jaxon Lal, a tiny tot who set the internet ablaze when a video of him playing in his garden went viral. 

Unique offer from City

Jaxon's mother, Joane Radcliff, has now posted on Facebook to say that Manchester City's academy has been in touch with her to discuss his possible future as a City player. Radcliffe said she first received a call from a local side Medlocks Junior, before Manchester City got in touch. Jaxon's mother said she couldn't believe it. 

Jaxon wants to be as good as Messi and Ronaldo

Jaxon for his part apparently only wants to be as good at football as his idols Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo (ah the innocence of youth, being able to support them both! Though in his video he's plumped for a Messi shirt...) and his mother has confirmed that given the offer from Manchester City is unique he will be joining them.
