Gai Assulin Signed to Manchester City

19-year-old Gai Assulin has the moves. Having been chased by several clubs since leaving Barcelona Football Club in July, he’s opted for Manchester City. The club offered the midfielder a two-and-a-half year deal.

Former Barcelona player Yaya Toure is credited with persuading Assulin to move to Eastlands.

At 16, Assulin was the youngest player by 195 days to have played for Israel. Check out the video of his first game below. Go on, you blues!
