Spain U21 midfielder departs Manchester City for new loan spell at Girona FC

Manchester City and Girona FC have confirmed that Spain under-21 international Aleix Garcia will join the La Liga club on loan for the second consecutive season.

Garcia, 21, made 18 appearances in Spain’s top flight for the Catalan club last season, but often had to be content with substitute appearances.

With a new coach – Eusebio Sacristán – in place and a year’s worth of experience under his belt, which included his first cap for Spain’s under-21s, Aleix will look to become a regular for the team this season.

The former Villarreal midfielder has been involved in Girona’s pre-season plans and with his return now official, said he didn’t hesitate about the decision.

“I’m very happy to return to Girona,” said Aleix. “I didn’t hesitate for a moment. The city is spectacular and the fans have always supported me.”

Signed from Villarreal in 2015, Garcia has already made 9 appearances for the Manchester City first team, 8 of them coming in Pep Guardiola’s first season before the decision was made to loan him to sister club Girona.
