Manchester City are all set to wrap up the signing of exciting young winger Savio at the end of the season from their sister club Girona. The Spanish side have been over performing and are in the race for the LaLiga title this year, going head to head with Real Madrid. And the young Brazilian has impressed with his skills and end product, earning him a move to the top City Group club.
The documents are ready to be signed as revealed by Fabrizio Romano, and will be completed in the coming days. But the winger remains focused on completing the season in the best possible way, potentially with a shocking league title win.
Savio to join Manchester City: Inevitable move now set to go through
Barcelona were one of the clubs interested in signing the player, but due to his presence in the City Football Group fold, Manchester City always had the upper hand in the race. And now, he is all set to join Pep Guardiola’s side at the end of the campaign.
In 23 LaLiga games, the 19-year-old has scored five goals and provided seven assists, a remarkable return for a teenager. But even more impressive is the sheer skill and pace that he has shown while playing for Girona.
Savio will face stiff competition at City in terms of breaking into the first team. Phil Foden, Jeremy Doku, Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva are all competing for game time, and he could only have a few opportunities to play. But if he manages to break through, he could be a valuable presence in the squad for Guardiola to have.
