Galvez is a left-back naturally, but has also enjoyed a spell in left midfield.

Manchester City have had their own set of shortcomings in the left-back department and although Galvez still has a long way to go, he could be carefully nurtured for a first-team role in the future as a result of his impressive set of skills.

According to the latest information from MCFC Reserves & Academy, and later confirmed by the club, Manchester City have successfully persuaded Tomas Galvez to join the City Football Academy to continue his development in English football.

Earlier last month, a report in The Athletic had suggested Watford were set for a complete restructure of their academy set-up, with a senior figure already departing. Those changes could filter down to the players, and Galvez is certainly one of them on the move.

The CFA has become a hub for emerging talents to hone their skills and Galvez will hope to follow the paths of Phil Foden, Kelechi Iheanacho, Jadon Sancho and Brahim Diaz to name a few, who have all gone on to shine at the biggest stage in world football after developmental spells at the Etihad campus.
