Manchester City have completed the signing of Melbourne City winger Daniel Arzani.

The 19-year-old was the youngest player at the 2018 World Cup, coming off the bench in each of Australia’s games.

“In a short period of time, Daniel has developed into one of Australia’s brightest young stars and has demonstrated the drive and raw talent required for success at the highest level,” said Brian Marwood, said the City Football Group’s Managing Director of Global Football.

“This pathway was first forged by Aaron Mooy just two years ago, and we are all delighted to see another Australian-grown talent make this move. The combination of City Football Group’s global football structure and the world-leading City Football Academy facilities create an environment in which this pathway can become well-trodden.”

Arzani is a tricky and creative wide player but is not expected to join up with the City squad immediately, instead moving on loan to Celtic until the end of the season. City have said they will confirm his immediate future in the next few days.

During his A-League career, the teenager scored two goals in 26 appearances.
