Moreno set for Manchester City switch and Deportivo loan, claims agent

The Colombian forward's representative has revealed his client will be shipped out to La Liga temporarily once he completes a switch to the Citizens from Atletico Nacional

Marlos Moreno will join Manchester City before heading to Deportivo La Coruna on loan, according to his agent.

The Colombia international won the Copa Libertadores with Atletico Nacional on Wednesday night, beating Independiente del Valle 2-1 on aggregate, and is now set for a move to Europe.

Goal reported earlier this month that the 19-year-old is set to join City, and Moreno's representative has now revealed that a switch 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," Eladio Tamayo is quoted as saying by Futbolred.

Tamayo poured praise on the young star having seemingly sealed a big move to City.

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