Former Manchester City graduate Rabbi Matondo has dismissed suggestions that he is focused on a big-money move with Manchester United reportedly keen on signing him. The 19-year-old made the switch to Schalke around 18 months back after spending three years in the youth academy at Manchester City. He is one of the many exports who are being linked with a move back to the Premier League. Matondo has been able to come up with some impressive performances for Schalke this season.
United could trigger a clause in his contract that would enable them to skip negotiations with Schalke on together. However, City could still have a say in this transfer, as it is rumoured that City still have the option of buying him back.
Matondo is one of the several highly talented youngsters in the German league, but he is not thinking about a big-money switch at this moment. Part of the reason would be the length of his contract, which still has three years left. According to Manchester Evening News, Matondo said:
“Obviously there are people talking, asking me and stuff but I am not really thinking about it.
“I am concentrating on Schalke. I still have to achieve my goals for Schalke. I am just concentrating on that and we just see how things go, but for now I am just focused on Schalke.”
There is still a long way to go for the winger, who has only scored one goal so far this season in 13 appearances.
