Earlier today we brought you an update on the future of Manchester City youngster Manu Garcia.

The midfielder is on his way to Sporting Gijon this summer, his fourth loan deal in as many years.

He had initially been set to join City on their tour of Asia but wasn’t keen on that as he wanted to get his future sorted out.

He’s since signed a new deal at the Etihad, that will keep him there until 2021, and will now be joining Sporting Gijon for next season with AS believing the deal will be completed sooner rather than later.

One of his new teammates, Uros Djurdjevic, has now spoken about Garcia’s impending arrival, stating that ‘I do not know him, but if he comes from Manchester City, he’s a great player’ in a chat with El Comercio. 

That remains to be seen for Garcia, given he’s not exactly shone during his time away from Manchester City.

He managed just two goals and four assists in 34 games for Toulouse last season while it was 11 assists and three goals in 58 games for NAC Breda in the loan spell before that.

Those are not exactly exciting numbers but perhaps a return to Spain, particularly with his first club, will be the turning point for the 21-year-old.
