Manchester City send scouts to watch Cristiano Ronaldo’s 26-year-old Al-Nassr teammate

Manchester City have reportedly sent scouts to watch Cristiano Ronaldo\’s Al-Nassr teammate Abdulrahman Ghareeb at the AFC Asian Cup.

The 26-year-old winger is expected to be in action when Saudi Arabia face South Korea in a round of 16 fixture on Tuesday (January 30). Ghareeb’s nation finished finished on top of Group F with seven points, two clear of second-placed Thailand.

The Al-Nassr forward has managed to find the net once in the competition, which was the equaliser in a 2-1 victory over Oman on January 16. Overall, he\’s made 21 appearances for Saudi Arabia and has scored twice.

In the Saudi Pro League, Ghareeb has found the net once and produced five assists from 18 appearances. Owing to his performances of late, it is believed that the Cityzens are observing the winger’s performances (via @sadaalmalaeb).

Manchester City lost Riyad Mahrez last summer and could be looking to add to their wide options. Jack Grealish and Jeremy Doku currently share the burden on the left flank while Phil Foden plays off the right.

A move to the Etihad would mean that Ghareeb would have to contend with the aforementioned names for game time. Additionally, Bernardo Silva could be deployed on the flanks if needed.

However, the transfer would earn Ghareeb an opportunity to play in the Premier League and for a club challenging for major honors. Manchester City completed the treble last year, winning the UEFA Champions League, the FA Cup, and the Premier League.
