Manchester City have entered the race to sign Le Harve teenager Jules Ntcham, who has been labelled the ‘new Desailly’, according toThe Telegraph.

The midfielder is captain of France under-16 side, has been scouted by Juventus, Arsenal and Inter Milan, and is widely recognised as the most promising player of his generation in France.

The starlet has resisted the French club’s attempts to tie him down to a long-term professional deal, and has remained on a youth contract since his 16th birthday back in February.

Ntcham comes from the same club as Manchester United prospect Paul Pogba, and the Ligue 2 club will face a battle to hold onto their young gem.

Inter are believed to be in pole position to win the race for his signature, but Roberto Mancini has sent scouts to watch the young midfielder also.
