Manchester City have beaten Manchester United and Barcelona to the signing of Racing Club wonderkid Bruno Zuculini, Express reports.
Zuculini is on his way to England for his medical, which will see the 21-year-old becomes City’s second signing in the space of a few days.
The Citizens paid around £1.5million for his services and will become the fourth Argentinean player on Manchester City’s roster.
Although the City hierarchy sees him as one for the future, Manuel Pellegrini is already hoping that the defensive midfielder can slot right into the first team squad.
His current employers confirmed the switch in an official statement, which read: “Bruno Zuculini today travelled to England to perform a medical examination at Manchester City.”
Zuculini made 92 appearances for Racing ever since he debuted for the club at the tender age of 17.
The starlet will be the Citizens’ third signing this summer, having previously captured Arsenal right back Bacary Sagna on a free and FC Porto’s Fernando.
