Fabrizio Romano provides Here We Go on incoming Manchester City attacking transfer



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have finalised a deal for City Football Group rising star Savio, as per confirmation from transfer insider Fabrizio Romano.

The 19-year-old has enjoyed a thoroughly successful temporary agreement while on loan at La Liga high-flyers Girona this season, playing an integral role in the City Group club challenging the biggest clubs in Spain at the top of the division.

Savio himself has offered 12 goal contributions in La Liga action, having scored five goals and provided a further seven assists across his 24 appearances in the Spanish top-flight so far, leaving Girona in 2nd position, and just five points off from leaders Real Madrid.

Given the Brazilian’s meteoric rise whilst developing with Girona, it comes as no surprise to now see interest from Manchester City in dictating the player’s future by taking up ownership of the player from the coming summer.

Following several months of monitoring, and discussions having intensified over the last few weeks, a fresh development this week has indicated that Manchester City have now finalised all elements of negotiations over the teenage forward.

That is according to the information of transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano, who reports that Sávio to Manchester City can now be deemed as a ‘here we go‘ move following developments between the concerned parties in recent days.

It is detailed that Manchester City now have all the contracts ready for ‘Savinho’ to join the reigning Premier League champions in July, with a deal now at the ‘signing stage’ and documents being reviewed and completed on all sides of the move.

Atlético Mineiro first announced an agreement with the City Football Group in June 2022 for the transfer of Sávio to European football, with an initial move set at €6.5 million with another €6 million coming in variables.

With Savio initially assigned to French club ESTAC Troyes, the teenager spent a season on loan in the Netherlands, before stepping up his development with a move to Spain’s top division the season after.

At present, it remains unknown as to whether Manchester City will look to integrate Savio into their first-team squad immediately. However, the most likely scenario will see the forward assessed during pre-season, with a decision made on his future in the days after.
