Teen sensation Luca Netz would snub Man City twice as he focuses on future at Borussia Monchengladbach

 The highly-rated 18-year-old defender has turned down an opportunity to join the Blues once before, and would do so again if they made an approach

Luca Netz is forging quite the reputation at Borussia Monchengladbach, to the point that leading sides from across Europe are shooting admiring glances in his direction, but the 18-year-old has turned down Manchester City once before and says he would do so again if the Premier League champions came calling.

The highly-rated left-back has taken in just 16 competitive appearances as a senior star, with those outings spread across spells with Hertha Berlin and Gladbach – with a £3.6 million ($5m) transfer made over the summer.

He could have been on the move before then, having been approached by City in 2018, but a youngster being tipped to break into Hansi Flick’s Germany squad believes snubbing the Blues was the right call as his development needs to be served by regular game time in his homeland.
