Over the past few weeks, we’ve covered a number of articles regarding Juan Sebastian Sforza, a 17-year-old midfielder currently in Newell’s Old Boys’ U19 squad.
Half represented by Lionel Messi’s brother, the youngster was linked with Manchester City, as well as West Ham, by an intermediary, Camillo Autieri, and those names have stuck ever since.
The other 50% of the agents around Sforza is Claudio Curti, who admitted in a separate interview that clubs from Italy, Spain and England had consulted him for the midfielder.
The same agent has now spoken to Foot Mercato in France, where he explained Paris Saint-Germain (another of the clubs mentioned by Autieri) hadn’t come forward.
However, he did reiterate the interest from clubs in Italy, Spain and England, and explained they would all be travelling to the upcoming Sudamericano U17 tournament, where the youngster will be representing Argentina.
That means Manchester City, and most likely West Ham, will be sending scouts to view Sforza, backing up our theory this might be one they keep an eye on going forward without really making a move anytime soon.
Furthermore, reinforcing this thought, Curti revealed there would be no transfer anytime soon for the 17-year-old, meaning the Cityzens will definitely have to wait.
