Who is Savio joining Manchester City next summer?

Manchester City has been the club on the rise in the Premier League since Pep Guardiola took over from Manuel Pellegrini on July 1, 2016. Under the Spanish tactician, the Citizens have dominated the English first tier, winning 16 titles in just 7 years, which is undeniably very impressive.

It is evident that the club administration has always backed the manager and provided him with big-money signings whenever and whoever he wanted. It seems like the administration has once again given the Spanish genius another signing opportunity, which could transform the team’s structure altogether.

Who is Savio?

Born in Sao Mateus, Espirito Santo, Brazil, the Girona left-winger is an impressive talent on the rise and has been producing consistent performances with his brilliant dribbling skills and take-on ability while putting fire in the league.

Plying his trade in La Liga, which is known for not being protective of such quality wingers, the player has made the task look so easy that every quality winger, even Vinicius Junior, who is dubbed the best player in the world in his position, has looked feeble in front of him. His trickery and intelligence have already destroyed the defenses of many clubs in the league.

On loan from French side Troyes, where he didn’t get as many chances, the player has been making the proper use of all the opportunities given to him by Girona manager Michel and has helped his side stay in the fight for the La Liga title. Girona is in second place in the league, only two points behind Real Madrid FC. Their away encounter against the league leaders on February 10 might be pivotal to their overall prospects.

Even competing with the La Liga supergiant is a big deal, but the club has looked impressively good against them and has already beaten two of them with a 4-2 win over Barcelona and a 4-3 win over Atletico Madrid this season. Only Real Madrid has proven to be a thorn in their side this season, but the team would be looking to make that right in the upcoming match and Savinho’s role in the match would be vital as always.

The Brazilian has played for four different clubs in his career until now and has produced impressive numbers with 11 goals and 11 assists. He is just 19 years old and is already being compared to Real Madrid star Vinicius Junior for similarities in his playing style and talent.

Savio set to join City next summer

Savio is currently playing for the City Football Group-owned club Girona FC and it seems like the great tactician Pep Guardiola, who recently squashed rumors around Erling Haaland’s transfer, has been impressed by the performances of the teenager so far.

Recent reports have suggested that the Citizens have already agreed to a deal to sign the Brazilian winger despite competition from other European clubs and the player is set to join the Pep Guardiola side in the summer of next season.

Manchester City, who are also in a race to sign another talent Michael Olise, obviously doesn’t have any issues regarding money and the fact that the 19-year-old winger plays for Girona FC, a club under the City Football Group, makes the signing easier. It has been reported that Pep sees Savio as a starter, equivalent to Real Madrid’s Vinicius Junior, and expects the player to arrive in full fitness and form next season and provide individual class and match-winning performances for the club, which the team has been missing in recent weeks.

The Brazilian, who scored and assisted seven goals each for Girona FC this season, is delighted with such an opportunity to play for such a big club under such a brilliant manager and focuses on finishing the current season strongly with Girona so that he can continue the momentum and rise in his career.

Do you think the signing makes sense for Manchester City? It would be interesting to see how the career of the Brazilian progresses from here, as the player has very high potential and could soon become one of the best players in world football. Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
