This is our City: Two 16 year old Players sign for Manchester City FC, Garre and Gonzalez are living their dreams

Two 16 year old Players sign for Manchester City FC, Garre and Gonzalez are living their dreams

Two players have gone unnoticed due to being 16 years old, over shadowed by City's senior acquisitions. The first of the two is Benjamin Garre. His former club Velez are apparently not happy about losing their prodigy and have complained to Fifa.



Benjamin Garre will be joining Manchester City from Argentine Primera Division Velez Sarsfield, Manchester City are reported to have beaten FC Barcelona and Snubchester United to his signature. The 15 year old will join the City Football Academy after admitting on his Facebook page. "I'm going after a dream, to one of the best academies in the world, with the conviction that my football will develop". "That a club like Manchester City is interested in me makes me proud and while I understand that some may see it as wrong, it is a challenge I have to take, thinking of my career."

I can only presume he's referring to Velez Sarsfield and their fans, he spent time training at Carrington with United in 2014 but Garre decided to not join United. FC Barcelona were also reported to have been after the lad. He also spoke to Argentinian Radio station La Pelota al 10 saying: "I won't let this opportunity with City pass. Every player dreams of it. It's a gift from God. Going to Manchester City was a great opportunity. I decided with my Family it was the best place to go."

He was born January 1st 2000, is a right footed Attacking Midfielder, Orgulloso.es claim the lad has a strong physique which is unusual at such a young age and has good ball control. Being at a young age there isn't much information about him outside of Velez Sarsfield. Benjamin is the Grandson of Oscar Alfredo Garre, an Argentine Legend and Defender who won the 1986 World Cup. Benjamin Garre wore the No10 shirt for Velez Sarsfield
