Manchester City have acquired the services of Australian wonderkid Daniel Arzani.
Daniel Arzani, 19, was named as the the league’s Young Footballer of the Year after scoring 2 goals in 18 appearances in the A-League for Melbourne in 2017-18.
City’s managing director of global football, Brian Marwood, was delighted to see Arzani make the move within the group.
Marwood said: “In a short period of time, Daniel has developed into one of Australia’s brightest young stars and has demonstrated the drive and raw talent required for success at the highest level.
“This pathway was first forged by Aaron Mooy just two years ago, and we are all delighted to see another Australian-grown talent make this move. The combination of City Football Group’s global football structure and the world-leading City Football Academy facilities create an environment in which this pathway can become well-trodden.”
