Sarmiento is currently playing under the management of ex-Barcelona defender Milito – who has recently taken over the manager role up at the Argentinian club. Since then, the left winger has shined in the Primera Division, becoming the second youngest debutant in the history of the club.

It is expected that should the deal be completed, he would play for the Manchester City academy side, yet there is scope for the player to move between clubs operating under the City Football Group banner. With a fee reaching the tens of millions - expect to hear big things about Dario in the future.
