Chelsea and Manchester City are both chasing Sunderland teen Bali Mumba, according to The Sun
The Premier League giants reportedly look set for a transfer battle to secure the 17-year-old’s signature, despite the fact he only just agreed his first pro contract with his current side this week.
Mumba impressed in his midfield role against Halifax in Wednesday’s FA Youth Cup tie, where both the Blues and Citizens had representatives in attendance.
City were understood to be frontrunners to sign the starlet for around £2.5million, however Chelsea have now ramped up their interest.
The England under-18 international has featured in three first team matches for Sunderland in League One so far this season.
