Who is Savinho, Girona’s 19-year-old Brazilian sensation confident in Manchester City future?

In the world of soccer, new young sensations emerge regularly as older veterans retire. These talented young superstars arrive on the scene, and Savinho is one such teenage sensation on his way to the top.

It’s quite possible that we’ll see him playing for Manchester City in the near future. Initially, football fans might be unfamiliar with Savinho and wonder about the team he plays for. That’s why we’re here to offer all the intricate details about this remarkable young prodigy.

Who is Savinho?

Savinho, a 19-year-old Brazilian forward who mainly plays on the left wing, is presently on loan at Girona of La Liga. The club has had an outstanding start to the season, securing second place in the league primarily due to Savinho’s efforts. In nine appearances, he has registered two goals and four assists.

Savinho’s journey began in the youth system of Atletico Mineiro, and in 2020, he found his way into the first team. The City Football Group, a consortium based in the United Arab Emirates that owns Manchester City and a number of other clubs, took notice of his extraordinary skills and talents. They secured his services for €6.5 million, with the possibility of earning an additional €6 million through add-ons.


He initially joined the Ligue 2 club Troyes but was soon sent on loan to the Dutch club PSV Eindhoven. In the current season, he’s playing for another club within the City Football Group, Girona, based in Spain. Savinho is currently representing the Brazilian U20 team and was part of the victorious Brazilian U-15 squad during the 2019 South American U-15 Championship.

If he maintains his outstanding form, he may earn his first international cap for the national team in the near future. The 19-year-old is renowned for his creativity and technical prowess in the attacking phase of the game. He excels as a passer and dribbler, capable of dismantling defenses quickly. His player profile is similar to that of Leroy Sane and his compatriot Rodrygo.

Savinho eyes first-team spot at Manchester City

Being part of City Football Group, Savinho could eventually make the big move to Manchester City, the crown jewel of the consortium. In a MARCA interview, he was asked about his potential move to the Etihad in the future. The youngster expresses confidence in his abilities to reach that destination as long as he maintains his current progress. He emphasizes the City Football Group’s significance in his career, considering it a highly valuable project.


“The City Group is a very good project. I was at PSV, now in Girona. At PSV I didn’t play as much, but I learned a lot. I have to thank PSV for opening the doors to me, because the things I learned there have helped me be well at Girona today.”

He now thinks Manchester City could be his next destination. He also had interest from other clubs in the summer, with Jose Mourinho‘s AS Roma being one of the clubs heavily interested in acquiring him. Savinho now has the chance to prove his worth with the next game for Girona against Celta Vigo on Saturday.
