Manchester City have reached a full agreement to sign Manchester United youngster Harrison Parker, and a deal will reportedly be officially confirmed in the coming hours.

Parker, 17, is one of the brightest young talents in English football right now, and he has rejected a contract extension at Old Trafford to join their fierce rivals Man City.

While Man City are set to bolster their academy with the additions of Mukasa and Parker, they lost both Jack and Tyler Fletcher to Man Utd earlier this summer.

The Fletcher twins are the sons of former Red Devils star Darren Fletcher and they have joined Man Utd’s U18 team.

Man City’s summer business

Mukasa and Parker are set to become the latest two additions to Man City’s squad, although they will link up with the academy side first.

In regards to the first-team, Guardiola spent €241.9 million during the summer transfer window, with four new arrivals coming through the door at the Etihad.

Josko Gvardiol was the most expensive at €90m, while Matheus Nunes (€62m), Jeremy Doku (€60m) and Mateo Kovacic (€29.1m) also joined.
