According to an exclusive report from the Manchester Evening News, youngster Jayden Braaf faces an uncertain future after his first team training snub – potentially delivering a blow to City’s hopes of keeping him at Eastlands. 

Braaf, who has displayed real promise in the City academy recently, scoring nine goals in 16 starts for our Elite Development Squad this season, is currently frustrated at still being left out of the first team picture.

Should City keep or sell Jayden Braaf?





Dubbed the ‘new Sancho‘ due to his likeness with ex-Sky Blue prodigy Jadon, Braaf’s sky high potential is similar to that of the Borussia Dortmund winger who we let go back back in the summer of 2017.

Now, Sancho is currently enjoying the streak of his life in the Bundesliga, attracting attention from many top clubs with his 17 goals and 16 assists domestically.

Braaf, at least hypothetically, could go down a similar road if we do not aim to keep him at the Etihad – but now the MEN claim he has been left ‘disappointed‘ by the lack of clarity over his future.

He apparently does not expect game time but sees training with our first team stars as a real step in his progression.

Described as a ‘real handful‘ by City EDS coach Paul Harsley, it’s clear the 17-year-old possesses a degree of promise going by his numbers this season, but it’s unclear as of yet whether letting him go could be a Sancho-like situation waiting to happen.

However, judging by this latest update, if City continue to stall on first team chances, he may request to exit in future regardless.
