Manchester City news: Ukraine starlet Oleksandr Zinchenko becomes Pep Guardiola’s latest signing

4 Jul

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of teenage midfielder Oleksandr Zinchenko.

The 19-year-old was one of the bright young sparks at Euro 2016 and shone for Ukraine, even though they crashed out in the group stages.

A number of Europe’s top clubs have been chasing the FC Ufa midfielder and he had several offers on the table.

But he has now opted to link up with Pep Guardiola at the Etihad, joining City for an undisclosed fee and penning a five-year contract.

Zinchenko scored twice in 26 appearances last season for FC Ufa, having moved to the Russian club from Shakhtar Donetsk on a free transfer in 2015.

He made his debut for Ukraine in October and featured in all three of their games at Euro 2016.

He joins Nolito and Ilkay Gundogan in moving to City this summer.
