Manchester City new boy Douglas Luiz is set to be confirmed as a Girona FC player as soon as today, but he is just one of several young Blues who will be joining the La Liga club on loan for the new season.
Another is 20-year-old Aleix Garcia, the promising midfielder who has already seen his fair share of first team action under Pep Guardiola.
Aleix is already in Catalonia and will be announced as a loan signing for Girona soon, according to TV3 journalist Josep M. Puig.

After Douglas Luiz and Aleix Garcia, more should follow from the Etihad, with the likes of Marlos Moreno, Pablo Maffeo, Patrick Roberts and Brahim Diaz among the possibilities. With their promotion to La Liga, Girona now find themselves entitled to the pick of City’s best young players who are available for loan, and they will be able to continue their development in the Spanish top flight.
