Manchester City and FC Barcelona are among the high-profile clubs in a battle to sign Belgian under-17 starlet Jorthy Mokio. Mokio, who made his debut for KAA Gent’s senior squad last month, is considered one of the most talented defenders of his generation. Despite Gent’s efforts to retain him, Manchester City and AS Roma are also interested in the 16-year-old player.

FC Barcelona has reportedly made an offer for Mokio, with Manchester City known for securing exciting young prospects in recent years. The Premier League champions have also signed South American talent Savio from ESTAC Troyes and are expected to pay the Philadelphia Union for 14-year-old Cavan Sullivan. The competition between top clubs for promising young players like Mokio highlights the ongoing battle to secure the next generation of talent in European football.

As one of the youngest players to participate in the UEFA Youth League for Gent, Mokio’s rise from the youth academy to the senior squad has captured the attention of top clubs across Europe. With his potential and talent recognized by clubs like Manchester City, AS Roma, and FC Barcelona, Mokio’s future remains uncertain as the race to secure his services intensifies in the football world.
