Guardiola’s Premier League giants have secured the 18-year-old wonderkind from Partizan. The youngster will be heading to the English side in the upcoming January transfer window as confirmed by the club.
The deal is said to cost the Citizens a reported figure of 6 million pounds. The youngster has already played 3 seasons of professional football and will be a fantastic addition to the Manchester side.
The youngster has grabbed the attention of many top clubs in Europe including Manchester United. However, it looks like it is Guardiola who has ultimately managed to permanently land the winger and a deal will be worked through between the Serbian club and the English side in January.
Guardiola has been responsible for making multiple signings of young talent for Manchester City. They have landed Yab Couto, a young Brazilian right back from a Columbian club while also landed Juventus’ Pablo Moreno. However, City sends all these young signings out for loan and it looks like Stevanovic might also be heading the same direction. The report claims that the attacker will be sent out on loan as soon as he completes his deal, however, there is also another possibility of him staying with the Serbian side for another year despite completing the deal, just to continue his development at home.
Filip Stevanovic is a young winger who will be looking to catch the eye of Guardiola upon his arrival at the Etihad, in the hopes of getting a taste of Premier League football. He’s a very talented prospect and a fantastic addition to the group of players at Manchester City.
