Brandon FernandesNow this is as big as it can get. Brandon Fernandes, the wonderkid who represents India U19 team has been offered a contract worth $1 million to play for the English Premier League club that is lagging down the EPL chart.

Brnadon has been under the watch of EPL teams for over 4 years now since he impressed the scouts during Manchester United  soccer skills program.

Talking to ESPNStar, Brandon says , “It is a great honour to have had a trial with Reading and [if a deal can be reached] I will be very happy to play for them.”

He is just 19 years old at the moment and has trained with the U21 team of Reading for 2 weeks. Currently undergoing training with the Leicester City FC, Brandon understands that the game in EPL is very physical.

I have been training with the club’s under-21s which is a good experience. I think that if I want to move to England I need to match their players physically.
