Abemly Meto Silu, Brazilian of Congolese origin (17), better known as Metinho, is on the shelves of Manchester City, English Premier League club Manchester.
The Brazilian midfielder of Congolese origin, aged only 17, is currently a member of Fluminense. But that could change with his likely landing at the Etihad Stadium. The English club led by the Emiratis dreams of this nugget, which is considered the next “Paul Pogba.”
The player himself recently admitted to feeling flattered by the Citizens’ interest during an interview with the newspaper. “Today, I play in my team of heart, Fluminense, and I realize one of my dreams, which is to defend your jersey. Seeing everything that is happening makes me very happy because it results from hard work and dedication, “he said when asked the question.
Metinho, since 2003, has trained with Brazil’s senior national team. Manchester is so aware of their potential that they don’t want another European giant to get ahead of them in the race.
Metinho himself accepts the comparison with Paul Pogba, whom he considers his idol. “I am compared to him because of his life story and how similar they are on the pitch,” he said of it. They could soon cross paths in a Manchester derby.
