WE PICK OUT THE BEST YOUNG PLAYERS AT MANCHESTER CITY
Still just 19 but the most experienced youngster at the club, the Nigerian striker (pictured) scored eight league goals last season. A natural finisher who can also drop deep to link the play, Iheanacho will miss the Olympic Games in order to have a full pre-season with City.
A fleet-footed attacking midfielder, Diaz is seen as the jewel in City’s academy. The 16-yearold Spaniard starred in City’s FA Youth Cup and the UEFA Youth League campaigns and scored three goals as Spain reached the final of the U17 European Championships. Has brilliant individual skill and bags of ability.
A ball-playing centreback and natural leader, the 18-year-old stands at an imposing 6ft 4ins and has represented England at every age level from U16s to U19s. With City struggling last season in defence, Adarabioyo may be handed a chance to impress this season under Guardiola.
