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


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.
