Txiki Begiristain, director of football, continued, "Julian has pleased everyone at Manchester City with his technical prowess, commitment, and attitude. 


"He is the perfect example for a budding football player and an inspiration to anyone trying to break into the industry. He has previously demonstrated his superb movement and skills for scoring goals while playing in England. 


"We seen what a unique talent he has at the World Cup. It's incredible to have won it at such a young age.
