Girona FC will not be signing Manu Garcia on loan from Manchester City despite an attempt by the Catalan club to sign the 20-year-old recently.
New adventure coming soon ✨

With Garcia not heading to the Montilivi, Girona FC have instead made Brahim Diaz their main priority to sign on loan from Man City, Catalan newspaper SPORT reports.
Girona’s interest in the 18-year-old sensation is not new, but has intensified as they look to strengthen for their second season in La Liga.
The player’s versatility is said to be of particular appeal to sporting director Quique Cárcel, with Brahim able to play in most attacking positions.
Brahim will join up with City for pre-season next week and like his fellow wonderkid Phil Foden, will have no shortage of suitors if made available for loan, so Girona will have to move fast to secure the Málaga native for the new season.
