Could FC Copenhagen’s wonderkid play his way to a move to Manchester City?

Could FC Copenhagen’s wonderkid Roony Bardghji play his way to Manchester City in their upcoming Champions League Round of 16 tie? Wayne Veysey reported in January for that City were keeping tabs on the young winger. With that in mind could he play his way to the Etihad over two legs against the world champions?

FC Copenhagen’s wonderkid has become one of the most sought-after young players in European football. With 11 goals in 30 appearances in all competitions, it is clear why Bardghji has become so highly sought after. If he can continue his impressive form against Pep Guardiola’s side he could potentially play his way into a possible summer move to the treble winners.

There isn’t a bigger test in European football than playing against the world champions. Manchester City are seeking to defend the treble they won last season and will know what’s at stake during the UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie. With this as the backdrop, it provides Bardghji the perfect opportunity to impress the Manchester City hierarchy.

In an interview with Sportbladet the Swedish youngster is looking forward to facing off against City. Bardghji said: “It’s a tough match but incredibly fun. It is big for the club, the players and the fans to play a round of 16 in the Champions League. We have great chances. We have shown at home at the Park that we can measure up to them. We drew against Manchester City last season. It is not impossible

With Wayne Veysey reporting on City’s interest in Bardghji, the upcoming Champions League Round of 16 tie is the perfect opportunity for the youngster to stake his claim for a move to the world champions. An impressive display from Bardghji could see Manchester City move for the winger.
