Now, Man City has activated a £22 million talent release clause in comparison to Maradona.
Claudio Echeverri, the wonderkid of River Plate, has now had his release clause activated by Manchester City.
That’s what TV Play says.
What is the current state of affairs between Manchester City and Claudio Echeverri? Let’s examine this.
Juventus is doomed when Manchester City activates the Claudio Echeverri clause.
The 17-year-old has been under close observation by Juventus, therefore this development is bad news for them, according to the Italian news source.
TV Play believes that Manchester City has now completely outclassed the Italian powerhouses in this transfer war. The treble winners are rumoured to have paid the €25 million (£22 million) release clause while making fun of Juventus in the process.
Additionally, it is alleged that Manchester City has now derailed Cristiano Giuntoli’s plans, the Director of Football at Juventus, with Turin viewing the update as a “serious problem.”
Though the report implies that this was already done earlier in the piece, the last line asserts that Juventus would have little chance of success IF Manchester City chose to activate Echeverri’s release clause.
Notwithstanding TV Play’s ambiguous phrasing, Manchester City seems to be in the lead to sign the Argentina Under-17 international.
In the U17 World Cup Quarterfinal match against Brazil, Echeverri—dubbed the “right-footed Diego Maradona” by TV Play—scored a hat trick to propel Argentina into the Semi Final.
Claudio Echeverri must be acquired by Manchester City.
Txiki Begiristain needs to activate Manchester City’s £22 million release clause as soon as possible, if they haven’t already.
Echeverri seems to be a gifted young man who is creating a lot of buzz in Argentina.
The No. 19 for River Plate has already captained the Argentina Under-17 team and has played for River Plate at the senior level four times.
With that previously stated hat trick and eight goals in 17 games for the Argentina Under-17 team, Echeverri looks like a true gem with superstar potential.
Watch this situation closely as Manchester City tries to recruit the South American before Juventus does.
