Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City lead race to sign Claudio Echeverri

River Plate talent Claudio Echeverri will not sign a new contract, which opens the door for a host of clubs to make their move.

According to Fichajes, Manchester City, Barcelona, and Real Madrid have a big door open to sign Claudio Echeverri. The 17-year-old Argentine prodigy may not sign a new contract with River Plate, with his current contract expiring at the end of 2024.

Claudio Echeverri’s name has run in the European and English media over the last few months. The 17-year-old Argentine prodigy has been a good performer for River Plate, who had hoped for many things to fall in place regarding his future at the club.

Amid growing interest from Europe and England, River Plate had considered selling the 17-year-old Argentine prodigy if a solid enough offer arrived. Considering the quality and pedigree of clubs chasing him ahead of January, like Chelsea and Barcelona, they had hoped to receive a considerable fee.

Despite claims Echeverri wanted a move to Barcelona earlier, the Catalans may not have been in a position to pay an extraordinary price for the x17-year-old Argentine prodigy. However, things have now changed, and the Spanish giants might enter the chase with new vigour.

Echeverri may have decided against signing a new deal with River Plate, and his contract expires at the end of 2024. Hence, the upcoming January window represents the best period for the Argentine club to cash in on the 17-year-old and take what they can get.

This time, next year, Echeverri will be free to join a club of his choice, and he will have many top-class teams chasing his signature. Manchester City are already optimistic about its chances of signing him and may pursue the teenager with purpose.

Real Madrid have also been in the hunt, and together with Manchester City, they could spice up the chase for the Argentine teenager. Echeverri has a promising future ahead of him and might make the big switch to the continent if River Plate can agree to sell him for a reduced price point.

For now, there are suggestions they would want near his release clause, but clubs will now look to pay less as the Argentine side are in a precarious position to decide the youngster’s future.
