Claudio Echeverri is already considered a Manchester City player, even though he is currently playing with River Plate in Argentina. The Argentine is currently on loan at River Plate from Man City after being signed by the Premier League champions earlier this year. The exciting prospect will be at the Manchester City team next January under Pep Guardiola, but other reports suggest that he may not even play for the team next season. Echeverri may be loaned out to another club and not in the Premier League. The favorite to have the Argentine attacking midfielder is Girona in La Liga since it is a club under the City Group organization. The issue with this loan deal is that since Girona qualified for the Champions League next season, Echeverri may not be able to play for them since Man City is also in the Champions League and UEFA doesn't allow clubs with the same ownership. The Spanish clubs that may be able to sign him on loan are Real Sociedad, Real Betis, and UD Las Palmas.

Echeverri is showing promising signs in Argentina with River Plate, and some fans believe he is ready now. He is already 18 years old and could play for the Premier League champions, but the club decided to give him a year-long loan with River Plate. The Argentine attacking midfielder will be busy this summer because he won't be playing at River Plate but will represent Argentina in the Summer Olympics in Paris.

The U23 Argentina team will include Echeverri in the squad for the Olympics that begin in late July. This is another chance to showcase his talents to the world after impressing in the U17 World Cup last year. He will get to play with Man City striker Julian Alvarez, which many fans will look forward to seeing since they will be teammates under Pep Guardiola soon.

The other clubs that wanted Echeverri

Manchester City is believed to have signed one of the most talented young stars in the world, as big clubs were after him before he signed for the Premier League champions. FC Barcelona and Real Madrid were heavily interested in signing him. Barcelona was the closest out of the two to sign the Argentine, but due to questions about the price tag, Man City acted quickly.
