Manchester City fans are reacting to reports linking the Leeds United winger, Jack Clarke, with a move to the Etihad Stadium.
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 once claimed to be the world's best coach by Guardiola - Marcelo Bielsa.
And he provided his first senior assist on Saturday, enabling Pablo Hernandez to settle the Yorkshire derby at Sheffield United.
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 Manchester City faithful are saying on Twitter...
Which bit of him saying " we won't sign anyone in January" is hard to understand?— Geoff Donkin (@BeverleyBlue) December 4, 2018
Erm.. Didn't pep say we aren't signing anybody in the January window??— Linzi (@LinziNatasha) December 4, 2018
Yeah. It's fake news— John Eastwood (@johnstanwood24) December 4, 2018
why? we're giving away all of our 18 year olds because he refuses to play them.— Benjamin Lee (@BJL_91) December 4, 2018

PATRICK ROBERTS 2.0.— Jack (@JackBannerr) December 4, 2018
Got to be honest, it would be a silly move on his part, he should stay at Leeds who look like giving him a good platform to play & develop under a very good manager in Bielsa.— The fan (@SimonBarnes20) December 4, 2018
Wouldn't mind it if we buy him and loan him back— Abdullah (@AlgxrianPrince) December 4, 2018
Doesn't really affect him,us or leeds tbh
According to the Sun, Manchester City are not the only Premier League club keen on Clarke.
it is possible the Leeds academy product is being eyed to replace Brahim Diaz, the City winger being strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid.
