Manchester City are close to signing talented defender Harrison Parker from their neighbours Manchester United.
The 16-year-old has been at United since 2021 when he joined from Arsenal’s youth academy.
According to journalist Fabrizio Romano, the deal is almost done and they have reached an ‘agreement’.

It’s not the first time Man City have taken a player from their great rivals, we are all familiar with the Carlos Tevez saga when he made the controversial move from the red side to the blue side of Manchester.
Parker only made one appearance for Manchester United in the u18 Premier League last season.
Could we see Harrison Parker in the Man City starting lineup some day? Let us know!
