In The Pipeline: Manchester City’s attacking midfield star Felix Nmecha

Manchester City. Boasting an abundance of world-class stars and a starting XI that even Riyad Mahrez is struggling to get in.

Pep Guardiola has the likes of Bernardo and David Silva, Mahrez, Leroy Sane, Raheem Sterling, Kevin De Bruyne and Phil Foden at his disposal to play in the attacking areas alongside, or behind, one of Sergio Aguero and Gabriel Jesus.

In that respect, any young player in that same position faces a near impossible task to break into the first-team, but it is a challenge that young Felix Nmecha has managed to take a small step in overcoming.

442oons have charted the entire career of Man City’s main man Sergio Aguero through song in the hilarious video below…

The Hamburg-born Englishman has appeared on the Citizens’ bench twice this season, in the Carabao Cup tie against Leicester and in the Champions League group stage match against Hoffenheim, whilst also making his first-team debut against Burton in the Carabao Cup.

Nmecha, at just 18 years of age, has already proven himself as a man for the big occasion in the current campaign.

The teenager, whose brother Lukas has risen through the City youth ranks alongside him, has netted big goals on more than one occasion this season. He scored a double to help beat Manchester United in the Under-18 Premier League Cup semi-final, before going on to bag the only goal of the game in the final against Middlesbrough.

In between those two fixtures, Nmecha also found the back of the net in the FA Youth Cup quarter-final against Bournemouth, moments which have quite clearly attracted the attention of Guardiola.

Nmecha has spent time recently with England’s Under-20 side, despite being born in Germany – he is still yet to commit his international future to either country.

However, whichever nation the blossoming young attacking midfielder declares his allegiance to will be getting a fantastic young player who is on the right path to stardom – he does, however, face an almost impossible task at dislodging the plethora of talented first-team players in his position.
