Man Utd and Man City Set to Lock Horns Over Signing the Swedish Starlet
MANCHESTER UNITED are battling Manchester City for Swedish wonderkid Pavle Vagic, according to reports.
The Mirror claim United are keen to beat their arch-rivals for the 16-year-old’s signature.
The gifted young attacker is currently on the books of Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s first club – Malmo.
Vaglic has an impressive record at youth level.
He’s racked up five goals in 13 appearances for the under-17 and under-16 Swedish sides and is regarded as a hot prospect.
And despite his youth, Malmo have already promoted him to their senior squad.
Manchester City have been tracking Vaglic’s progress for a while.
However, Manchester United look ready to infuriate their neighbours and pip City at the post.
Vaglic has snubbed a move to the blue half of the city once before.
His family rebuffed City’s advances when he was only 14-years-old.
He made history last month when he became the first year 2000-born player to be included in a Swedish Premier League squad.
