Manchester City are moving for a young Barcelona trio.
City have been hit by a ban on youth recruitment by the Premier League – but it only covers UK players.
The Sun says City chief Pep Guardiola is raiding the Nou Camp forwhizz kids Pablo Moreno, Nico Gonzalez and Ansu Fati.
And Barca are furious that all three can walk away with only minimal training compensation as City look to take their next generation of stars.
Striker Moreno is one of their hottest properties in years and is due to head for England when he turns 16 next May.
Midfielder Gonzalez is 16 in January and his dad has already joined City as a coach with their academy.
African talent Fati is rated a future Barca starter but is also destined for Manchester next year when he is old enough to join.
