On Tuesday, Manchester City announced the signing of 19-year-old Ukrainian wonderkid Oleksandr Zinchenko from Russian side FC Ufa.
Today, Oleksandr has uploaded a photo of his contract signing on Instagram and looks delighted to have joined Pep Guardiola’s revolution.
The big question now is where does Zinchenko’s immediate future lie? There are conflicting reports, with some saying he could go straight into the first-team squad – his ability to play in many positions something that Pep is sure to value. Others believe he’ll spend a year on loan on the continent to continue his development, with the Dutch league mooted as a possible destination.
Wherever he spends the 2016-17 season, City look to have snapped up a real gem here for a modest fee and he could play a major role in the Guardiola era.
