Manchester City link with Welsh outfit Bangor City confirmed

Youngsters from the Welsh club recently impressed City representatives at a Futsal tournament.

Manchester City may have won two Premier League titles but the club is still growing at an exceptional rate especially their youth academy. The new facilities the club possess should see them rival any team in the world for youth development.

Based on similar models at Barcelona and Bayern Munich the academy is hopeful of producing more first-team regulars for City to use in the future, to alleviated criticism surrounding the club 'buying success'.

By the looks of things, some of those youngster might be Welsh.

That is because it was revealed earlier today by Bangor City in Wales that the two clubs have reached a link agreement which will see youngsters from Wales heading over to Manchester City to trial and train at the Etihad complex. Two youngsters have already been on trial at the club who have also employed Bangor City's academy coach as a local scout for the North Wales region.

With the recent success of the Welsh national team there is no doubt that there is plenty of talent floating about in the more traditionally rugby orientated country.

Who knows? City might just find themselves the next Gareth Bale.
