Marlos Moreno signs for City
Manchester City have announced the signing of Columbian international Marlos Moreno
The 19-year old joins from Atletico Nacional, signing a five-year deal with the club.
We are delighted to announce the signing of Marlos Moreno.

He will now go on loan to La Liga side Deportivo La Coruna until the end of the 2016/17 season, joining the Blues in January 2017.
Born in Medellini, Moreno broke through playing on the left wing where he can cut inside and strike shots with power and precision but he was also noted for his work rate, his intelligent interchanges and ability to see the picture when it comes to passing the ball.
The 19-year old can play anywhere across the front positions and has enjoyed comparisons with Colombian legend Faustino Asprillia.
Moreno becomes City’s seventh signing of summer 2016, joining Leroy Sane, Ilkay Gundogan, Nolito, Oleksandr Zinchenko, Gabriel Jesus and Aaron Mooy at the club.
