In 2020, the four-time Premier League champions made two eye-catching purchases from South America.
They signed Yan Couto in March, with the Brazilian right back moving from Coritiba on July 1. He was then loaned out for this season to CFG side Girona, who ply their trade in the Spanish Segunda Division.
City also captured Peruvian defender Kluiverth Aguilar from Alianza Lima for a fee of £1.5million in April. He will join later this year when he turns 18 in May.
