Ex-Villarreal starlet Aleix Garcia, in Manchester City's first team tomorrow

Aleix Garcia moved to Manchester City, and he's impressing quickly.

Aleix Garcia is still only 18, but he's been turning heads at Manchester City.  He scored a ripper of a goal for their development squad (youth team) against Reading recently, and also this pass against Liverpool's development squad that led to a goal.

Aleix has been on the bench for Manchester City's first team, and is (I believe) going to be again tomorrow as they face Spurs.   In a recent documentary (profiling Aleix and fellow youth player Manu Garcia, who came up in Sporting Gijon's academy) Aleix mentioned he modeled himself on the pitch after Xavi Hernandez.  He must be very excited about Pep Guardiola coming to City.
