Leeds United fans are reacting to reports linking the Whites winger Jack Clarke with a move to Manchester City.

According to the Sun, the Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola is 'leading the chase' for Clarke and 'is ready to pounce' on the youngster in January.

 

The newspaper claims the Spaniard has been monitoring Clarke's progress since the latter signed his first professional contract at Leeds last year.

The 18-year-old made his United debut earlier this season, under a man Guardiola once claimed to be the world's best coach - Marcelo Bielsa.

But with Clarke under contract until 2021, not to mention Leeds being on course for automatic promotion, could the Whites really cash in when the transfer window re-opens?

This is what the Elland Road faithful are saying on Twitter...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to the Sun, Manchester City are not the only Premier League club keen on Clarke.

The City winger, Brahim Diaz, has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid this week.
