Aleix García has become the second player to officially join soon-to-be-official City Football Group member Girona FC on loan for the 2017-18 season following the announcement last night that Pablo Maffeo would be returning to the Catalan club.

20-year-old Garcia, who is highly thought of by Pep Guardiola and City and has made nine first team appearances to date, scoring his first goal for the club in the 2–1 away win against Swansea during last season’s EFL Cup.
Aleix will spend the next year developing in La Liga, and is the second of four young City players heading to the Estadi Montilivi.
Announcements that Marlos Moreno and Douglas Luiz are also joining Girona on loan are expected imminently.
