It has been brought to Manchester City’s attention that a number of aspiring young footballers have regrettably fallen victim to a chain scam that is currently circulating worldwide.
The con centres on fraudsters, posing as FIFA licensed football agents, offering potential young footballers trials to play for the club in exchange for a sum of money. A number of other Premier League clubs have also been involved.
Manchester City would like to make it clear that we are in no way affiliated to the scheme. The club’s Academy has never and will never operate in this manner.
If you have any queries or require any clarification on this matter please contact the club.
