According to reputed Italian journalist Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City’s 19-year-old attacking prodigy Kayky is on his way to Portuguese club Pacos de Ferreira on a year-long loan deal. The move is expected to be made official in the coming week. Manchester City beat competition from Liverpool to sign Brazilian starlet Kayky from Fluminense in the 2021 summer transfer window. The youngster went on to make 14 appearances for the Citizens’ under-21 side, scoring six goals and providing four assists. Kayky also managed to play twice for the club’s senior team, once each in the FA Cup and the Premier League.

The Brazilian wonderkid is set to undergo a medical with Pacos de Ferreira on Monday, as all terms have been agreed upon between Manchester City and the Portuguese club. (more…)
