A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, Fichajes revealed that Manchester City are keeping tabs on River Plate prospect Claudio Echeverri. It has been mentioned that the Mancunian club will have to compete with Real Madrid in pursuit of the Argentine whizkid.

Echeverri’s Impressive Rise In Argentine Football

The 17-year-old is a graduate of River Plate’s academy after coming through their youth ranks over the past few years. Echeverri has caught the eye with his performances for the Argentine outfit’s second team and is currently the skipper of Argentina’s Under-17 team.

The Resistencia-born sensation has already begun to showcase what he is capable of back in his homeland. His current contract at River Plate is set to run out at the end of 2025.

Therefore, Man City will have to launch a big offer if they want to bring Echeverri to the Etihad Stadium later this summer.

Manchester City Are Keeping Tabs On Echeverri: Is He A Prospect For The Future?

Echeverri usually operates in the number ten position and has developed a healthy habit of scoring and creating a few important goals for his side. He is a technically gifted footballer who can make some driving runs with the ball in the opponent’s half.

The Argentine youngster can shoot the ball with power and accuracy from long range and has got the vision to unlock the opposition defence with some incisive passes in the final third.

Echeverri will no doubt bolster Man City‘s attack for the long run if Pep Guardiola can devise a way to get him on board this summer. He is still not ready to feature in the Mancunian club‘s first XI.

However, Echeverri has got the potential to become a success story at the Etihad Stadium in the long run as long as Guardiola is willing to be patient with his development.

At 17, the River Plate wonderkid is definitely a prospect for the future, so Man City will do well to win the race for his services.
