    Well I am not sure what to say about this. Aaron Mooy used to play in England and UK himself, but his episodes as a young player in Bolton Wanderers and St Mirren were not that successful. He had great season in Melbourne City scoring 18 goals while being midfielder. But I have to be skeptic... It is Australian league, and he has a lot of to prove under Pep Guardiola's supervision in EPL. Good luck tho.
