Although the Italian reported that the Champions League holders, who are supported by Abu Dhabi, had reached an agreement to purchase the excellent Brazilian player from Girona, this version of events is not entirely accurate.
Despite the fact that he is now on loan with the Catalans, Savio is currently owned by Troyes, a French Ligue 2 company.
There are, however, those who would argue that there is “same difference” between the three clubs in question because they are all members of the City Football Group consortium.
The documents that are necessary to complete the transaction will be signed “within the next few days,” according to Romano’s explanation.
“Despite bids from German and English clubs, Savio will join Manchester City,” Romano tweeted. He also added that the 19-year-old is “now 100% focused on Girona to end the season in the best way.” Savio will join Manchester City.
It is possible that following the conclusion of his 2023/2024 campaign, Savio, also known as Savinho, will be proclaimed the champion of La Liga.
Savinho is presently tied with Toni Kroos for the most assists in the Spanish top flight with seven. These assists have been essential in his team’s ability to mount an improbable title race campaign, with the German national team Real Madrid serving as their primary competitors.
Next Saturday, Girona and Real Madrid will compete against one another at the Bernabeu in a massive matchup that has the potential to determine who will succeed Barcelona as the kings of Spain.
In addition, Savinho has scored five goals in the league so far this season, one of which was scored in a victory over Atletico Madrid, which was also his first ever victory.
Even before to the matchup at Montjuic Stadium, in which Barcelona was left to suck their wounds after being outplayed and outclassed, it had been reported by sites such as SPORT that they were interested in Savio.
In spite of the fact that the newspaper stated that he was their “goal” for the year 2024, City has once again been able to outbid the Blaugrana before the negotiation table.
Despite the fact that Barcelona is unable to compete financially with Premier League teams and Paris Saint-Germain, River Plate prodigy Claudio Echeverri has also chosen to pursue his next career steps at the Etihad Stadium. This new disappointment comes after Echeverri made the decision to take his next career steps at the Etihad Stadium.
