Manchester City are reportedly in the process of finalising and signing all relevant documentation with regards to the signing of River Plate’s Claudio Echeverri.
The 18-year-old attacking midfielder is widely regarded as being the next big thing to emerge from Argentine football, following on from exemplary performances as captain of Argentina’s under-17 squad at the recent World Cup for that age group.
His performances for the national side attracted interest from across European football, with Manchester City competing with the likes of FC Barcelona and Chelsea and ultimately coming out on top in the race.
The agreement for Claudio Echeverri is the latest exchange of talent between the two clubs, following on from a hugely successful transfer of Julian Alvarez to the reigning Treble winners prior to the 2022/23 season.
Now, as Manchester City hope to have secured the next big name in football, fresh details have emerged concerning the negotiation over Echeverri that will see the player make the switch to Europe in December 2024 at the earliest.
According to the ‘exclusive details’ provided by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City and River Plate are now signing all contracts regarding the deal to take Claudio Echeverri into European football next year.
Fabrizio Romano reveals that Manchester City have agreed to pay a €14.5 million net fixed transfer fee to River Plate, with a further €9 million in performance-related add-ons as opposed to add-ons related to club titles.
The January transfer window in the way of incomings at Manchester City is likely to remain quiet when it comes to the first-team squad, with only outgoings largely being worked on by club officials.
Kalvin Phillips and Sergio Gomez are two players that have been shown the door, should suitable options and offers present themselves, and in the way of the latter, should a suitable replacement emerge for the Premier League champions.
