Sporting winger Felix Correia has announced his move to Manchester City.
Currently representing Portugal in the U19 Euros in Armenia, Felix has one goal and one assist from his opening two games to follow on from his seven goals in 20 appearances for Sporting’s U19s.
But the winger has ended speculation over his future by revealing his move to City and outlining his ambitions of breaking into the first team and working under Pep Guardiola.
“I signed a deal for Manchester City,” he said.
“But I’m fully focused on this championship. I’m looking forward to working hard and join the main team.”
Correia also explained how talking to Guardiola persuaded him to join City.

“I admire him a lot,” the youngster said of the City manager. “The few times that I talked to him I was really impressed. I’m eager to start working with him.”
While the deal hasn’t been formally announced, reports suggest City have agreed an initial fee of around £3m, rising to £6m with bonuses.
Duncan Castles told the Transfer Window Podcast that the deal would be completed later in the summer.
