Pep is a big admirer of the Uruguayan.

Manchester City have entered the race for De La Cruz, according to reports out of Argentina.

Pep Guardiola reportedly ‘loves’ River Plate attacking midfielder Nicolás De La Cruz (22).

Manchester City are negotiating with the player, with references being provided to Guardiola through Mikel Arteta.

The reports also inform the bid could be completed in January for 25 Million Pounds.

De La Cruz is a versatile attacking midfielder and while his skill could complement other players at City, my thinking is money could be better spent on a CB or true DM a la Fernandinho.

What are your thoughts?
