City send young­sters on loan to Girona

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

Manch­ester City sent three young stars on loan to La Liga new­com­ers Girona yes­ter­day. Brazil­ian mid­fielder Dou­glas Luiz, Colom­bian winger Mar­los Moreno and Span­ish mid­fielder Aleix Gar­cia will all spend the forth­com­ing sea­son with Girona as City strengthen their links with the club. City had al­ready sent Pablo Maf­feo on loan to Girona ear­lier this week for the right­back’s third spell with the Spa­niards. Luiz’s move comes just weeks after the highly-rated 19-year-old was signed by City from Vasco da Gama for £10 mil­lion ($13 mil­lion). “Girona will give Dou­glas the per­fect op­por­tu­nity to de­velop at the top level of the Euro­pean game,” City di­rec­tor of foot­ball Txiki Be­giris­tain said. Moreno, 20, was signed by City last year but spent the 2016-17 cam­paign on loan at De­portivo La Coruna. Gar­cia and Maf­feo, both 20, have been on the fringes of the City first team with­out earn­ing reg­u­lar op­por­tu­ni­ties.
