“I heard about that – they are interested in another young player. But I do not know if it’s going to finish.
“I know how good he is. He’s a winger, so fast, incredibly quick and a young talent. That is another thing; how good this club is working.”
Those are the words of Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola when he was asked about youngster Rabbi Matondo. The 18 year old is being heavily linked with a move over to Germany with Schalke, with the proposed fee believed to be around £11 million. Matondo was given his first cap with the Welsh national team by manager Ryan Giggs last year, and since then he hasn’t looked back.
Schalke’s first offer of £8.6 million was apparently turned down, despite the fact that Matondo has yet to even make a first team appearance for City.
Matondo’s youth career began with Cardiff before he made the move to City under the Elite Player Performance Plan.
