Ferran Soriano, the chief executive of Manchester City, has been on an exploratory visit to India as the club’s ambitious parent company, City Football Group (CFG), continue their search for global investment opportunities.

CFG are actively looking to buy a club in China and expand their current international stable of six clubs, but India is also believed to be a market of considerable interest to the group, even if there are no specific investment plans in the pipeline at present.

Soriano, who also serves as chief executive of CFG, attended an Indian Super League game between Jamshedpur FC and Mumbai City FC at the JRD Tata Sports Complex on Friday night in Jamshedpur in the south eastern state of Jharkhand.
