Report: Real Salt Lake in talks with Manchester City prospect Timi Sobowale

TRANSFER TRACKER STATUS: Report

Real Salt Lake are interested in Manchester City prospect Timi Sobowale, but there's plenty of competition for his services, according to a Saturday report from The Daily Mail.

Sobowale, a 19-year-old defender and Ireland U-19 international, has reportedly had initial discussions with RSL and is open to a stateside move, but is also on the radar of Crystal Palace and a handful of clubs in the English Championship: Millwall, Stoke City and Blackburn Rovers.

He joined Manchester City from Irish side Villa FC in 2018, but has featured only once for City’s U-23s, so a move to MLS could give him a chance to earn some more regular playing time.

A move to RSL would represent a similar trajectory as recently retired defender Nedum Onuoha, who played his youth soccer and started his professional career with Manchester City.
