Atletico Nacional's Marlos Moreno set to sign with Manchester City - agent

Marlos Moreno helped Atletico Nacional to a Copa Libertadores title this season.

Manchester City are set to sign Atletico Nacional forward Marlos Moreno, the Colombian starlet's agent has suggested.

The 19-year-old Moreno helped lead his side to their second Copa Libertadores triumph after defeating Ecuador's Independiente del Valle in the two legged final, and is considered one of South America's top young prospects.

The Colombia international has been linked to City for some time, and agent Eladio Tamayo told Futbolred on Thursday that a deal is imminent.

"I will travel with him on Saturday to sign a contract with Manchester City and he will go on loan to Deportivo La Coruna for a year," Tamayo said of Moreno's future.

Moreno, who came through Atletico's academy, has scored eight goals in 43 matches for the club, including three goals in 13 Libertadores appearances this term.

"The main architect of all this is Marlos, with his discipline and commitment. I just contributed a bit," Tamayo added.

"I love him like a son. We built this dream together and we did it with the help of his mother, his brothers and his girlfriend."

He has appeared seven times for his country since debuting in March 2016, scoring once.
