Spanish right back Pablo Maffeo swapped Barcelona for Manchester to sign as a first year scholar for City after beginning his youth career at Espanyol.
The Catalan side had already identified the defender’s early promise, and Maffeo made his league debut for Espanyol B in Segunda Division B at just 15 years of age, entering the fray as a late substitute against Constancia.
In an international set up littered with talent in all age groups, City’s new recruit has already represented Spain at U15 and U16 levels.
