Scott Minto has said that Manchester City have made an astute signing by bringing in Josko Gvardiol.

Speaking on talkSPORT’s Premier League Access podcast, the pundit gave his views on the Croatian international’s arrival at the Etihad Stadium.

And according to Scott Minto, Manchester City have smashed it out of the park by securing the services of Josko Gvardiol.

Scott Minto raves about Josko Gvardiol to Manchester City transfer

Branded as ‘phenomenal’ by Mateo Kovacic, the 21-year-old’s arrival has been largely considered as a brilliant coup.

Unsurprisingly so, considering there is a strong case to make for the former RB Leipzig colossus to be heralded as the best young centre-back in the world.

Scott Minto thinks so too, as he hailed the signing of Josko Gvardiol at Manchester City, briefly saying, “I think Gvardiol’s a really good signing.”

Short and sweet but that sums up how highly-rated the youngster already is, despite having a way to go before establishing himself as a certified world-class player.

Much like Arsenal’s acquisition of Declan Rice to an extent, Scott Minto is right to laud Josko Gvardiol as a coup for Manchester City, as this move could aid the club for the next decade.

The two-time DFB Pokal winner is quite simply a generational talent and playing in one of the greatest teams of all time under Pep Guardiola of all managers, he is likely to improve exponentially over time.

The youngster, in terms of his raw profile ticks every box, whether it be as a pure defender, in possession or as an athlete, which is why City seemingly decided not to give up on his signature for even a moment.

If Josko Gvardiol fulfils his potential, there is no limit to what he can achieve in the game and that too, at the Etihad Stadium.
