Manchester City will be focusing on homegrown talent

Manchester City is currently going through a pre-season tour in the United States as they have already played against Toronto FC and came out on top with a lonely goal from the 20 year old English midfielder George Evans.

Manuel Pellegrini is using this pre-season tour as a chance for the younger players to step up and show their worth in the pitch.

SekoFofana, Jose Angel Pozo, Bersant Celina and George Evans are some of the youth performers that Manuel Pellegrini placed into the pitch during Manchester City’s friendly match against Toronto FC.

However, even with the amount of players that Pellegrini has promoted from the youth academy into the main team, Joe Hart believes that Manchester City will still be active in the transfer market of the upcoming transfer window and one of the priorities will be in signing young British players.

Joe Hart expressed his thoughts about what Manchester City will be doing in the summer transfer window as the English goal-keeper said: “I am not in the discussions of transfers, but after losing Frank and James, I imagine with home-grown rules, it will be top of their list to bring in English players or to promote some of the young lads,”

Jose Angel Pozo is a young player who forms part of Patrick Vieira’s Elite Development Squad and has received praise from Patrick Vieira himself and the youngster has already managed to score goals with the first-team as he found the back of the net when playing against Sheffield Wednesday back in September.

Some of the other young performers are Olivier Ntcham and SekoFofana who have all spent loan seasons with the English side Fulham.
