Manchester City and Newcastle are after one of the great promises of Uruguayan football: Facundo Pellistri, according to the “Daily Mail”. The attacking midfielder has been highlighted in the starting lineup of the team, despite being only 18, and arouses the interest of other great teams, such as Real Madrid, Atlético de Madrid, Napoli and Boca Juniors.
The meringues have already negotiated with the Uruguayan club a few years ago to hire Fede Valverde and may have some advantage in the operation. However, Guardiola’s team remains in contention and it is believed that members of the English team have already contacted representatives of the youth.
The athlete is valued at around 10 million pounds and is trained by Diego Forlán in the aurinegra team and has already received much praise from the Uruguayan idol. According to the commander, the jewel has a lot of potential, but a lot of work ahead to grow and improve his football.
