Manchester City are one of the clubs who interested in the Newell’s Old Boys youngster Juan Sforza, according to one of his agents.
The story comes from Milan News, who managed to interview Camillo Autieri, an intermediary who works in deals with Italian clubs.
Autieri didn’t have much to hide, saying there are several Serie A sides who have opened talks for the 17-year-old, and named a few other European sides who have also initiated contact about signing the Argentine youngster.
“Bayern Monaco, Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and West Ham,” Autieri told Milan News.
Regarding the price, the intermediary claims Sforza wouldn’t be expensive at all: “Around a million and a half euros. Last year Newell’s Old Boys asked for two, but for a million and a half they would close quietly, perhaps inserting a percentage on the future resale for the Argentines.”
Manchester City have been doing a lot of scouting in South America for some time.
In the past three years, they’ve signed Gabriel Jesus, Marlos Moreno, Geronimo Rulli and Douglas Luiz all from that continent. More recently, there have been reports in Brazil saying the club have recently watched the likes of Flamengo, Grêmio and Cruzeiro.
So if Manchester City are serious with their chase for Sforza, they are likely to have a couple of scouts gathering information on the player at this very moment.
