2 La Liga gems to replace Man City’s David Silva
The Football Manc Cave are looking at 2 young La Liga players who Man City could look at when it comes to replacing David Silva.
The current Man City Captain has already spoken on how he intends to leave the Manchester side at the end of the year. Replacements will already be in consideration I’m sure. However, we are picking out some options.
Earlier this year, I picked out two La Liga senior players that may be considered as options and put it in an article. These are two options that Guardiola could look at for experience.
However, if he’s looking for youngsters that he can help develop, here’s two he could look at…
Odegaard is 20 years old and from Norway. He compares to David Silva in the sense that he is known as an attacking midfielder but can also operate both wings.
He is currently on loan from Real Sociedad to Real Madrid. His value is slowly raising as he’s gaining more game time. He’s being compared to other players like Brahim Diaz who is at Real Madrid.
He might be an option for Man City to develop and eventually get him to the David Silva standard. He has a lot of potential and could be open to a loan spell in the Premier League, considering he is currently on loan in the La Liga.
A young Real Madrid player who is also versatile. The 19-year-old Brazilian is known as a left-winger with secondary positions as a striker or on the right-hand side.
He’s currently valued at around £63 million as rated by Transfermarkt. The teenager has also only played for Real Madrid and Flamengo so could be open to a move to widen his experience and develop.
He’s been compared to Chelsea’s Christian Pulisic. Man City could always recruit someone with more experience, and then offer one of these youngsters a loan shot to see how they can handle the pressure.
Either way, it will be interesting to see who Guardiola goes after and when -because a replacement will need to be found. The topic of who should take the Captain’s armband will also come up.
