Man City rakes £70m on academy players

Manchester City’s academy has produced £70million in player sales in just four years.
The Premier League champions have eclipsed their big six rivals in the amount made on young talent nurtured in their system.
Jadon Sancho, Pablo Maffeo, Marcos Lopes and Jason Denayer are just a few of the prospects who developed at the state-of-the-art Etihad complex before being sold.
And City, who spent £200m on building their academy, will soon have paid for the initial outlay, according research by the Mirror.
Given the rich level of world class players available to the first team, it has become increasingly difficult for the best youth prospects to make the cut.
These promising stars have often opted to pursue their career elsewhere, but City can command hefty fees for them.
England international Jadon Sancho is a recent example. He turned down a £30,000-a-week offer so that he could move to Borussia Dortmund.
