Back in September, Savinho revealed he snubbed Arsenal for Troyes to fulfil his dream of joining Manchester City. The French club are part of the City Football Group, who also own the Premier League winners.

Last month, the winger said he’s confident Manchester City would want him if he were to impress regularly on the pitch. On Monday, Mundo Deportivo explained the treble winners would be given a priority over Barcelona to sign the 19-year-old.

Savinho is currently on loan at Girona, where he has played a key part in helping them sit at the top of the table. He has five goals and four assists from 14 games and Barca have taken an interest in him.

Sport brings the latest on this situation and explains why it’s unlikely for the Blaugrana to sign the player.

It’s claimed Pep Guardiola’s side have ‘no intention of losing control’ over the Brazilian, who has ‘exploded’ at Girona this season.

As things stand, the City Football Group’s idea is to allow him to extend his stay at the La Liga side next season, especially if they were to qualify for the European competition.

If he were to continue to shine, the newspaper states the attacker could end up at Manchester City in the future, which would fulfil his dream and clearly please those in charge at the Etihad.
