Manchester City have been arguably the most successful English club for the past decade thanks to their ability to identify and recruit quality players. But they have also invested heavily in a state-of-the-art academy that is now churning out one talented youngster after another.
Of course, Manchester has long been a hotbed of footballing excellence. And despite a fierce rivalry with Manchester United when it comes to signing the city's up-and-coming stars, they have had numerous homegrown heroes down through the years.
