Twitter reacts as on-loan Manchester City youngster nets yet another stunner

Manchester City's Enes Unal (C) in action

With Sergio Aguero, Raheem Sterling and Kelechi Iheanacho flying, it will take someone special to earn a place in that attack. Enes Unal, however, is certainly special.

Thanks to the exhilarating efficiency of Keven De Bruyne, the improvement of Raheem Sterling, and the brain-boggling tactical revolution taking shape under Pep Guardiola, the here and now is rather exciting for Manchester City fans. Then again, the future’s looking fairly bright, too.

With Kelechi Iheanacho, Leroy Sane and John Stones the poster boys of the next generation, City’s expansive recruitment drive appears to have laid the foundations for a dynasty. Like Chelsea, the Premier League pacesetters have stockpiled a collection of the world’s greatest talents before loaning them to grateful recipients to hone their ability and supplement their malleable potential with first-team experience.

‘Mini Messi’ Patrick Roberts (below), for example, continues to showcase his silky skills north of the border at Celtic while Marlos Moreno, one of the most exciting talents in South American football, will hope to return a year from now a more consistent and experienced player after a season at Deportivo.

However, the most exciting of all may be a player you had forgotten about. Enes Unal, a Turkish under-21 international striker, signed for a mere £2 million from Bursaspor last summer, according to SkySports.

Without warning, he has become one of the hottest talents in European football, starring alongside fellow City loanees Bersant Celina and Yaw Yeboah for Eredivisie side FC Twente. He netted twice, including one sumptuous free-kick, in Saturday’s 4-1 hammering of Den Haag. Add to that a hat-trick of stunners against Groningen a few weeks ago, and suddenly City fans are starting to take notice.
