River Plate star ready for Manchester City move




Hermes Desio, the academy director at River Plate, told AS that Claudio Echeverri, an 18-year-old attacking midfielder, is ready to move to Manchester City.

Manchester City and River Plate agreed on this in January, and Echeverri will stay with River Plate on loan until next January.

Echeverri joined River Plate’s first team last year and did very well. This caught the attention of many European clubs. In the end, Manchester City won the race to sign him. Manchester City had already signed Julián Álvarez from River Plate in 2022.


River Plate has a history of helping young players like Echeverri, Álvarez, and Enzo Fernández move to Europe.

Desio said that being part of River Plate means giving your best from the start. It’s like Real Madrid’s academy. He didn’t mention anything special about their academy, but many things together help players succeed.

When asked if Echeverri is ready for Manchester City, Desio said that some players mature early, and Echeverri is one of them.


He also said that playing for River Plate prepares players to handle pressure, as they play in front of 85,000 fans at the Monumental stadium. River Plate gives players the tools they need to develop.
