Premier League Leaders to Make Promising Addition
Hungarian wonderkid Zalan Vancsa looks to be heading to England and Manchester City. The Hungarian will add to City’s depth of promising youngsters who could yet become stars of their first team. Despite being just 17 years of age, Vancsa has played 10 matches for MTK Budapest FC this season so far, scoring one goal.
The Hungarian will be following in the footsteps of many other talents. Phil Foden was nurtured through City’s academy and is now one of the best young players in the world.

City signed Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko at the age of 19. Both have been instrumental in the club earning silverware over the years.
Vancsa will follow in these footsteps, with City’s academy being one of the best in the world. The Hungarian will be a great fit for the club, especially considering that all the facilities that City have will offer Vancsa fantastic experience.
The forward is being tracked by other European clubs, but Vancsa is looking like becoming a City player and joining the best league in the world.
Apparently, the Hungarian is heading to Manchester for a medical on Friday, but the deal has not been fully agreed yet. Vancsa is going to fit well in the City system, with the academy likely to be the first stop. However, there is nothing stopping the 17-year-old from progressing quickly to the first team.
The Hungarian has only scored one goal this season, but under the guidance of Pep Guardiola and others in City’s academy setup, Vancsa will blossom into a prolific scorer.
