Man City plan to host Europe's best youth teams

Manchester City plan to schedule a series of high-profile youth friendlies next season.

City youth chief Mark Allen says along with competing in the UEFA Youth League, they’ll also be staging their own friendlies at the Etihad Campus.

ᄀᄚIt gives us the opportunity to further attract and develop more European teams to play against us, and test us,ᄀᄆ Allen told the Manchester Evening News.

ᄀᄚMy role is to try to produce players capable not only of playing in the Premier League, but of being part of a team that can win the Premier League, and that can handle that and also the problems of playing European football in midweek.ᄀᄆ
