The City Football Group have several clubs in their stable and that includes Manchester City, Troyes and Girona.

Savinho arrived in Europe for the first time when the Manchester City owners signed him from Atlético Mineiro for Troyes in 2022. After spending the previous season on loan at PSV Eindhoven, he joined the La Liga side on a temporary deal in the last window.

Girona are second in the table, ahead of Barcelona and Atlético Madrid, and the forward has played a part in their good run this season, managing two goals and four assists from nine games.

Marca interviewed the 19-year-old to discuss his and the Spanish club’s impressive start to the season. They also asked him what it means to be associated with the City Football Group and if he aims to end up at Manchester City.

He said: “The City Group is a very good project. I was at PSV, now in Girona. At PSV I didn’t play as much, but I learned a lot. I have to thank PSV for opening the doors to me, because the things I learned there have helped me be well at Girona today.

“The City Group’s project is first class, and I think that if I do well, Manchester City will want me.”

It isn’t the first time the Brazilian has talked about his desire to make a switch to the Etihad. Last month, Savinho revealed that he turned down Arsenal to be part of the City Football Group, in order to fulfil his dream to play for Manchester City.
