On February 14th, AS reported Manchester City had closed an agreement with Troyes for Savinho. It was also stated the Citizens were negotiating with the winger, to sort out the last details of the contract.

The 19-year-old has been on loan at Girona since last summer and his fine displays so far has convinced Pep Guardiola’s side to bet on him.

Wednesday’s edition of Sport states Manchester City have ‘signed all the documents’ to bring Savinho to the Etihad in the summer.

The Premier League winners are owned by the City Football Group, who also own both the La Liga side and Troyes. This has made it easier for Manchester City to agree a deal with the French club.

Despite this, the report states it’s not given that the Brazilian will be playing under Guardiola next season.

Girona ‘continue to trust’ that he’ll be at the club for one more year, but there are several key factors that need to be taken into account first. Sport have also relayed comments from the Spanish club’s sporting director, Quique Cárcel.

“Savinho is a player who is under the City umbrella. They have to consider whether he is a future footballer for them or not,” he said.

“I see that he is a player who needs growth and I think Girona’s platform is very good for him. If we really achieve our goal of being in Europe next year, one more year at Girona would be very good for him.”

The South American has scored seven goals and registered seven assists from 29 games this season.
