New Manchester City midfielder makes professional debut and provides an assist… at just 14-years-old



| Last Updated:


Manchester City have seen one of their incoming arrivals to the Etihad Stadium make his professional debut this week, registering an assist in the process.

Cavan Sullivan is expected to become the latest in a long line of promising talents from the Americas to make the switch to the Etihad Stadium, following on from a number of names from South America to buy into the City Group project.

Manchester City are set to welcome Savio into Pep Guardiola’s set-up this summer, with the 19-year-old winger purchased by Etihad Stadium bosses after a stellar campaign with Girona on loan from ESTAC Troyes.

The City Football Group development path is one that is becoming more and more proven with every recruited talent, and this week has seen a new name thrusted into the limelight following initial reports of an agreement with Manchester City.

As highlighted by Fabrizio Romano this week, Manchester City’s incoming 14-year-old talent Cavan Sullivan has now made his professional debut for Philadelphia Union’s second team, providing an assist in the process.

It is reaffirmed that the Premier League champions have agreed a deal to sign Sullivan, and are currently in the process of ‘preparing all formal documents’ to sign the deal for the American wonder-kid ahead of a switch to the club in the ‘future years’.

Such is the excitement around the talent possessed by Sullivan that the teenager has earned rave reviews from a number of prominent figures both in his sporting circle and throughout the wider football media world.

Back in April 2023, Philadelphia Union head coach Jim Curtain said that the now-incoming Manchester City Academy prospect – just 13-years-old at the time, “has the ability and talent to become, I’ll just say, a household name.”

Former USA international and now-ESPN analyst Taylor Twellman said that Manchester City scouts had told him that they believe Sullivan is “the best 14-year-old in the world,” before he himself went on to state that those of such an opinion are “not wrong.”
