Calendar of FC Barcelona

What was a 'secret' very advanced, has begun to take form in the last hours. The Manchester City has closed an agreement for the incorporation of Claudio Echeverri, the one who will reinforce the rows of the current champion of Europe from January of 2025 and by the next six seasons. It is a signing estretégico of the English group and that it can be one of the big tarpaulins of the future.

The 'citizens' have paid the clause of exit of the player of 17 years, that rose to the 25 million euros. It is worth it to remember that, until it does very little, it was very linked with a movement to the FC Barcelona. It was a profile that interested a lot to the Barcelona sportive direction and that it could mark the difference to average term, but the economic situation deprived them to present an offer to River Plate.

All smart for the traspaso of Claudio Echeverri

The player did not expect a movement by part of the Catalans and listened the different offers that had on the table. It is not a secret for anybody that had generated interest in the 'big' of Europe and that, especially in England, the bet was total. So much Chelsea like Manchester City were tightening by his incorporation, but finally has been the picture of Pep Guardiola the one who has won the battle to do with his services.

The skilled journalist in the market of signings, Fabrizio Romano, has explained recently that the operation already is closed. Now, River Plate and the Manchester City are exchanging the necessary documents to seal the deal and 'celebrate' with a successful movement the arrival of the new year. It could announce in the next hours. The true is that no longer there is gone back backwards and Echeverri will engage with the 'sky blues' by six seasons.

Echeverri Will follow in its footsteps Julián Álvarez

This yes, will happen a year more in River Plate. It will follow forming and growing like footballer before giving the big jump to Europe and to a so demanding team as it is it the Manchester City. It is a very similar case to the of Julián Álvarez, the one who also went out of the Argentinian team and arrived after having been yielded some months. The impact was immediate and in the Etihad Stadium see him like one of the key forwards for the future. With Echeverri will be the same posture.
