Manchester City Academy is about to become the best in the world, and it’s proven by the facts.

The Manchester City FC Academy is widely regarded as one of the best in world football for its breakthrough approach to training, attention to detail and high standards of talent development. It has produced outstanding results in recent years, most notably with its U18 and U21 teams, which have been crowned Premier League champions in their respective age categories for three seasons in a row. This not only confirms the high level of training of the players, but also serves as an indicator of the successful operation of the entire club system.

Not all players who graduate from the academy find their place in the Manchester City first team, but the club has a unique ability to profitably market its students. Over the last three transfer windows, City have managed to earn approximately €170 million by selling players coming out of their academy. Particularly notable is the sale of Cole Palmer to Chelsea for €47 million, a prime example of a successful transfer strategy.
