A report carried on Sky Sports News suggests that new Manchester City manager Mark Hughes, has agreed to what is a club-record fee of Ã‚Â£19 million with CKSA Moscow for 21 year old Brazilian starlet, JÃƒÂ´.
The negotiation of personal terms and a medical are now reportedly all that is left to sort out and is being touted as a mere formality.
The only potential problem for the talented striker is expected to come in CityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s pursuit of a work permit. Due to JÃƒÂ´Ã¢â‚¬â„¢s lack of international appearances, there being a strong chance that CityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s initial bid will be rejected.
However, the club will be extremely hopeful of winning on what will be a personal hearing appeal, and if the deal does indeed go through JÃƒÂ´ will become HughesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ first major signing at Eastlands since joining from Blackburn Rovers.
