Manchester City is eyeing on Girona loanee Savio to sign with the ballclub at the end of the season.
In fact, City is in a “pole position to land” the Brazilian teen sensation, according to the Daily Star.
Savio, who is playing for the top-seeded Girona on loan from French club Troyes, has been a revelation in La Liga this season.
The 19-year-old scored five points and five assists in 20 appearances with Girona.
Aside from City, Savio is also gaining interest from Real Madrid and several Bundesliga clubs.
Incidentally, the English club’s City Football Group owns Girona and Troyes.
This means that City has a chance to sign Savio for as little as £10million.
Savio previously expressed interest in playing for City, but he remains focused on his stint with Girona.
“I have the goal of playing for City, yes,” said Savio.
“I think that when I was hired, my goal was always to get to City, and I’m working towards that.”
“But I have to keep my focus on Girona and do things well to get there.”
“If one day I arrive at City, you can be sure that I did things well at Girona, as I am doing. “
“I want to continue working here so that one day I can reach City, which is my reference point.”
