The Brazilian is on loan at the La Liga club from Troyes but all of these clubs are owned by the City Football Group. The organisation’s top club is Manchester City and everyone involved feels it is time that the winger makes the move to the Premier League.
Savio will have a huge fight on his hands to become the starting left-winger at City next season as Jeremy Doku and Jack Grealish are currently battling for the role
The 19-year-old is unlikely to be a starter for the Premier League champions next season and given his young age, will be allowed time to develop under the best coach on the planet, Pep Guardiola.
