Manchester City are battling Barcelona to sign brilliant Malaga teenager Brahim. The 14-year-old playmaker has already been the subject of two failed bids by Barcelona and was even introduced to Xavi Andres Iniesta and Lionel Messi as the Spanish champions tried to persuade his family to move. Malaga rejected a £2.5million proposal from Barcelona in 2012 for the boy wonder whose full name is Brahim Abdelkader Diaz with agent Pere Guardiola who represents Liverpool's Luis Suarez involved in negotiations. Barca are determined to sign a player they believe could be in their first team by the age of 16 and are lining up a fresh offer but City are prepared to fight them all the way. They have been scouting Brahim for two years and manager Manuel Pellegrini is well aware of the buzz that surrounds the youngster at his former club. He hopes the cordial relationship between City and Malaga can prove decisive in convincing Brahim's family to move to England
