Claudio Gomes has completed his transfer from Paris Saint-Germain to Manchester City. The young French midfielder had already been training with the Premier League champions on their tour of the United States and has now signed a multi-year deal in a free transfer from PSG.
The 18-year-old is considered as one of the biggest wonderkids in France and PSG has been trying to keep the French U18 international in Paris, but failed to reach an agreement with Gomes. “He has been so good, so good,” City manager Pep Guardiola told the Manchester Evening News of Gomes.
“My opinion is that at that age you have to play. You need minutes, if not with us then with the second team”, Guardiola added. “But it could be like what happened with Phil Foden and Brahim Diaz – he could stay with us, because from what we have seen in these days, the impression is good, so good.”
