City finally announce Gai Assulin signing *videos*

Gai Assulin has finally been announced by the Club as a City player.

He has been at the club for a little while now but City have been monitoring a knee injury and have also been sorting out compensation with Barcelona.

Barcelona had high hopes for Assulin, he was touted as a future world star, something which was acknowledged throughout football not just by his own club.

Currently 19 years old Assulin was given his first pro contract by Barca as a 16 year old with a massive 20 million euro buy out clause in it, which shows you how much he was rated.

After deciding he would not get a proper chance at Barca he decided to leave when his contract expired, leaving City to pay nothing more than a small development fee to Barcelona.

Other clubs were interested in him including Blackburn whom he trained with as well as Arsenal, but City won the race for his signature so lets hope he can fulfill all that speculated potential.


  1. Good news after the whole tevez situation :)

  2. Don't mention his injury issues or anything. lol

  3. I missed this story, Gary, so thanks for the update. He looks good - Messi-esque.
