‘HE’S COMING THIS SUMMER’ ‘Let’s Get It Done’ Fans Excited As Journalist Confirms City Will Pursue Next Martinelli

Manchester City are expected to make a move for Girona winger Savio this summer, according to The Athletic reporter Sam Lee.

The journalist has confirmed reports from Spain that the Cityzens could raid one of their feeder clubs to secure the services of the Brazilian.

Savio is currently on loan at Girona from Troyes; both teams are part of the City Football Group so Lee claims a deal should be “fairly easy” to negotiate. Fans on X would back a move for the teenager:

Savio has already been likened to an Arsenal star

The 19-year-old has been compared to Gabriel Martinelli with the similarities being that they are both young Brazilians who play on the left flank.

Savio is undoubtedly further back in his development than his fellow countryman, but he has had a breakthrough season with Girona in Spain.

The winger has spearheaded his team’s title challenge

Along with top scorer Artem Dovbyk and veteran Cristhian Stuani, Savio has fired Girona into title contention this season, scoring 5 league goals and contributing 7 assists in 22 league appearances.

The Spanish side are currently just two points behind Real Madrid in the La Liga table, having lost just one league game all season. That came against Real back at the end of September. Since then, they have won 11 and drawn 3 of their 14 matches.
