It is rumored that Savio will sign with Manchester City, and the Brazilian may be another player in the mold of Jeremy Doku.
Savio, who has been on loan at Girona this season from ESTAC Troyes, was reportedly close to signing a contract with City just before the Brentford match.
In 27 appearances across all competitions, the 19-year-old has been in fantastic form, tallying seven goals and dishing out seven assists.
Savio has dazzled at the elite La Liga team, and City is about to make a move.
The Premier League will closely examine the acquisition because the City Football Group owns both Girona and Savio’s parent team, Troyes.
However, Pep Guardiola might have another player in the mould of Jeremy Doku on his hands if this does go.
Savio, a potential new signing for Manchester City, has completed the most dribbles in La Liga.
If City is able to lure Savio to the Etihad this summer, that is yet to be determined.
Journalist Fabrizio Romano suggested that an agreement should be concluded by the end of February after reporting that one had been reached. He went on to say that he will “begin the pre-season under Pep Guardiola and be a part of City’s first team from July.”
Savio is undoubtedly a thrilling player; if one statistic is any indication, he might even resemble Jeremy Doku.
He is the player who has completed the most dribbles in La Liga this season, with 62, according to WhoScored.
The South American sensation is the subject of a piece on WhoScored, which compares him to Doku, a player well-known for his dribbling.
Savio appears to be a gifted young man.
Given that the City Football Group owns the team, opposition supporters have naturally expressed their opinions regarding Savio’s upcoming transfer to City.
Let’s just concentrate on the player for a second: Savio appears to be a highly exciting young prospect that City plans to bring in and is expected to join the first team right away. Like Doku, the dribbling stat clearly demonstrates that he is a direct player who enjoys taking on his man.
After watching him in preseason training, Pep Guardiola might make a choice.
However, the fact that he will have participated in the Eredivisie with PSV Eindhoven and completed a season in a premier European league like La Liga means there’s a potential we’ll actually see him wearing a City shirt the following season.
