Manchester City

Manchester City loaned player Yan Couto scores a late winner in a 4-2 victory on Monday. He continues his strong start to the 2023/24 season with a goal for Girona. Pep loaned the 21-year old to Spanish side Girona back in July. It is his third temporary move to the Spain.

Yan Couto has now one goal and one assist to his name in this season of La Liga so far. Furthermore, the Brazilian scored his first goal of the season as the 89th minute winner against Granada on Monday. According to journalist Jorge Nicola, Pep feels that the right-back has a future at Manchester City and can break into the first team. Regardless of Couto unable to stay at Etihad for a ling time, the management has very high hopes about him.

The 2023/24 campaign is crucial for Yan Couto as there may soon be a vacancy at the right-back for Manchester City. Kyle Walker has just renewed his contract until he becomes 36. But Pep is exploring for a long-term option to replace the England International . With City in a hunt for a new right-back option, Couto has a chance to secure a permanent spot in his parent side if he develops a great character. He may play as a regular starter under Pep Guardiola if he registers a great campaign this season.

Hopefully, the Brazilian prodigy can carry forward his impressive form after a strong start to the campaign.
