Manchester rivals target Mitoma at the same time.
Manchester City and Manchester United have made plans to sign Brighton’s Japanese winger Kaoru Mitoka.
Mitoma joined Brighton in the summer of 2021 from Japanese side Kawasaki Frontale. He spent his first season on loan at UnionSG to gain experience, and has been fulfilling his potential since last season. He scored 10 goals and provided eight assists in 41 appearances in all competitions for the Seagulls, and has shown that he has adapted perfectly to the Premier League, scoring three goals and providing three assists in nine games since the start of the season.
Mitoma now has less than two years left on his Brighton contract. Naturally, the Seagulls are trying to convince him to stay, but they’re reportedly having trouble.
Spanish outlet Pizajes reports that both Man City and United are huge fans of Mitoma, and that both clubs are determined to sign him in the January 메이저사이트 transfer window. However, the outlet claims that neither club can afford to wait until next summer, and that Brighton would feel uncomfortable selling Mitoma in mid-season.
Man City are looking to fill the void left by Riyad Mahrez with Mitoma. Man United are also in need of a winger transfusion. Jadon Sancho is likely to leave the club over a protest case, while Anthony Martial’s assault on his ex-girlfriend is not being dealt with neatly.
