Villarreal, El Madrigal

The Spanish youngster will be hoping to become a City first-teamer in years to come.

Manchester City are currently trying their hardest to snap up former Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne from VfL Wolfsburg, but amidst all that chat it may slip some by that City have finalised the signing of Aleix Garcia from Villarreal.

The early Premier League pace-setters have been chasing the 18-year-old for most of the summer and have finalised a deal today, as confirmed on their official Twitter account earlier today.


They were not the only ones confirming the deal on their official Twitter accounts. Garcia himself took to his account to share the news with his followers, along with a picture of him signing on the dotted line with the Premier League club.


Translated, the message reads:

"The beginning of a new stage at Manchester City, thanks for all my family at Villarreal CF. Always go forward."

According to the Manchester Evening News the Spanish youngster has cost the club around £2.1 million and will go into the Elite Development Squad for the upcoming campaign.

Garcia is a talented winger who currently represents Spain at under-18 level. He made his first-team debut for Villarreal in May during a La Liga match with Athletic Bilbao and recently featured at The Emirates Cup, hosted by City’s Premier League rivals Arsenal.

He will join the likes of countrymen Jose Angel Pozo, Pablo Maffeo, Manuel Garcia and Angelino in trying to make it at City.
