Man City Plotting to Hijack Real Madrid’s Wonderkid Target

16-Year-Old Argentine Wonderkid Ignites Transfer Frenzy: Man City vs. Real Madrid!

 

Pep Guardiola is looking to add a sprinkle of South American magic to his Manchester City squad next season, and his target? None other than 16-year-old midfield sensation Franco Mastantuono from River Plate! This wonderkid has already made a splash in Argentina’s top league, and according to reports, both City and Real Madrid are locked in a heated battle for his signature.

 

Hold on to your hats, because River Plate hasn’t made things easy. They’ve slapped a hefty £45 million release clause on Mastantuono, a price tag that hasn’t fazed the ever-ambitious Real Madrid. Spanish outlet SPORT claims Los Blancos have already charmed the teenager with a contract offer, spearheaded by their chief scout Juni Calafat.

But wait! Here comes Manchester City, ready to throw a wrench in those plans. City, no stranger to poaching talent from River Plate (remember Julian Alvarez?), are reportedly making a last-ditch attempt to snatch Mastantuono from under Real’s noses. They’re hoping their past dealings with the Argentinian club will give them an edge.

 

Meanwhile, in a surprising twist, Manchester City full-back Sergio Gomez might be used as a bargaining chip. His time at the Etihad hasn’t been fruitful, and with Real Sociedad expressing interest (after failing to land Kieran Tierney), City are asking for €15 million to part ways. Will this potential Gomez transfer sweeten the deal for River Plate and influence Mastantuono’s decision?

 

One thing’s for sure: This transfer saga is just getting started, and the battle between these two European giants for the next big thing in Argentinian football promises to be a thrilling one!
