Manchester City will have advantage in Savinho chase

Manchester City will have an advantage over Barcelona if they look to sign 19-year-old Brazilian attacker Savinho.

Savinho is currently on loan at Spanish club Girona, and he has been outstanding for them. The 19-year-old attacker has five goals and four assists to his name across all competitions, and his performances have attracted the attention of the Premier League club as per a report by Mundo Deportivo via Sport Witness.

Girona signed the Brazilian wonderkid on loan from French club Troyes. Troyes and Girona are both part of the City Football Group. So, Manchester City will certainly have a major advantage if they want to sign the 19-year-old.

Apparently, Barcelona are keen on the player as well. But they are likely to be priced out of a move. Any move away from the City Football Group would see Troyes demand a premium, and it remains to be seen how the situation develops.

The report claims that the City Football Group will want the 19-year-old to stay within their own umbrella. So, a move to the Premier League could be on the cards in the near future. The versatile attacker is capable of playing on both flanks as well as an attacking midfielder. He will add goals and assists for the Manchester City attack if he joins the club.

The Premier League giants could certainly use a quality young attacker like him, and Pep Guardiola could help him develop into a key player for Manchester City. The Brazilian has recently stated his desire to play for Manchester City in the near future. So, the opportunity to join the Premier League club in the coming months will be hard to turn down.

It would be a major step up in his career, and he would get to play for a club capable of winning major trophies. In addition, working under a world-class manager like Guardiola could help him develop further and fulfil his tremendous potential.

Regular football in the Premier League could accelerate his development as well. Manchester City parted ways with Riyad Mahrez this past summer, and they could use a versatile winger like Savinho. They have the financial resources to get the deal done, and it remains to be seen whether Manchester City decide to submit an official proposal anytime soon.

Girona will probably want to hold on to him until the end of the season. He has been a key player for the Catalan club, who will look to finish this season strongly. They must look to hold on to their best players, and keeping Savinho at the club will be a top priority.
