Barcelona aiming to sign Argentine wonderkid, with Girona as potential destination

Barcelona set to miss out on Claudio Echeverri as Manchester City closes in

The Missed Opportunity

Barcelona look set to miss out on Claudio Echeverri, one of the most sought-after teenagers in world football, as Manchester City closes in on the 17-year-old forward. The fee for Echeverri is believed to be in the region of €20-25m, and it seems that Barcelona and Real Madrid, who were also linked to him, will lose the race for his signature.

Manchester City’s Plan for Echeverri

According to reports from Argentine outlet Ole, the deal with Manchester City will be completed soon, and Echeverri is set to remain in Buenos Aires for the coming year until his contract ends. City plans to continue his development and help him bulk up physically before integrating him into their team. Despite only playing 135 minutes of football for River, Echeverri is considered one of the most promising talents in football.

Girona’s Potential Benefit

Girona, who are part of the City Football Group, could benefit from Manchester City’s plan for Echeverri. Currently hosting Yan Couto and Savio Moreira on loan, Girona may receive Echeverri on loan after his time with River. This move could see Girona gain one of the most promising talents in football, signaling a new phase for the Catalan side if they were to secure Echeverri’s loan.
