Manchester City chief Ferran Soriano says they're pleased with the progress of their global club network.
Soriano insists the partnership programme is working to the benefit of City.
He explained: "In August 2017, a sixth team, Girona FC, became a City Football Group, and in their first La Liga season they finished in an impressive tenth place with a squad featuring several Manchester City loan players.
"In Australia, 19-year-old Daniel Arzani, the youngest player to feature in the 2018 World Cup, was sold by Melbourne City to Manchester City before being loaned to Celtic, a pathway forged a year earlier by Aaron Mooy who has gone on to achieve fantastic success in the Premier League at Huddersfield Town.
"Domènec Torrent transferred from Manchester City to New York City to take the role of Head Coach left vacant by Patrick Vieira, to whom we are grateful for his contributions both as a Manchester City player, and as a coach of Manchester City's youth and New York City's first team."
