Manchester City are owned by the City Football Group and the latter have added several other clubs to their stable in recent years.

The City Football Group acquired a Girona stake in 2017, and since then the Citizens have allowed several of their players go out on loan there.

In the last transfer window, Pep Guardiola’s side sent goalkeeper Arijanet Muric, right-back Yan Couto, and forwards Nahuel Bustos and Pablo Moreno to Girona on loan deals.

Muric and Couto collectively have six league appearances between them, while Bustos and Moreno have struggled to impress despite being offered regular opportunities. The attacking duo have scored a goal each in the league across 25 appearances between them.

Wednesday’s edition of Sport states the ‘help’ from the Premier League side isn’t having any impact on Girona’s starting XI.

It’s claimed none of the four Etihad players have ‘found their fit’ at Girona. Only Moreno seems to be enjoying the confidence of the La Liga 2 side’s manager, Francisco.

The importance of the four City owned players seems varying and their stats are ‘discreet in general’, suggesting Girona are disappointed with their poor form this season.

Muric, Couto, Bustos and Moreno have joined 11 other players who have arrived at Girona from the Manchester club over the years. These men have lived ‘experiences of all kinds, with rising numbers or performances to forget’.

The latter would be associated with the four Manchester City players who joined Girona on loan deals for this season.
