Pep Guardiola’s side are overloaded with stars but City are now focusing on bringing in youngsters.
The sale of Jadon Sancho would’ve hurt the Cityzens especially after a huge rise in the value of the teenager.
Guardiola has now identified another starlet in Antonio Marin.
The 18-year-old is considered to be one of the brightest young talents coming out of Croatia and has featured in 5 games for Zagreb’s second team and has scored 4 times so far.
The teenager is naturally a left winger but has been used on the right flank at times. Marin is a typical left winger whose biggest strength is cutting in to drive through towards the goal.
The Croatian’s biggest asset is the runs he makes on the shoulder of the last defender, which is a massive threat if a fellow teammate is able to find him.
His composure in front of goal is very good and is also capable of scoring from outside the box. Marin is also a wonderful free-kick taker.
The Premier League is an ideal destination to improve his game and under Pep Guardiola, he can fulfil his massive potential.
