A merry day for all City fans as they could see an additional Argentinean talisman join the club soon. It’s about Claudio Echeverri, a talisman type of a winger who showed out for Argentina in the U-17 World Cup that included a great hat trick.
Understand Manchester City are advancing to final stages of Claudio Echeverri deal, contacts taking place even today.— Fabrizio Romano (@FabrizioRomano) December 24, 2023
Plan to structure deal together with River Plate same as for Julián Álvarez — Echeverri will stay on loan.

The player is really good and he would be tracked similar to Julian Alvarez and could be of immediate service. The plan would be to loan him where he is at River and then bring him in the summer for a full off season and program with Pep and the team.
I love this deal and would be all for it.
