The money in the deal as per Romano in the tweet above is more than manageable and could be a bargain if Savinho pans out. Romano also clarifies that he could go to PSV in the Netherlands as he wouldn’t meet the standards required for a visa in England under the new post-Brexit rules ad regulations.
That seems like a win-win for City. He gets minutes at a legit club and league while improving as a young player.
Savinho is a real good prospect and has played well at Mineiro. We’ll see how he responds under these new environments.
