PSG Takes on Real Madrid, AC Milan in Battle for River Plate Wonderkid – Report

Under sporting advisor Luis Campos it wouldn’t be out of the question to see Paris Saint-Germain be in the mix for the top young talent to come out of South America. 

PSG was in the mix for Palmeiras’ wonderkid Endrick Felipe, but Real Madrid came away with the Brazilian youngster. Nonetheless, the French giants are in the mix for another starlet, this time out of Argentina.

Defensa Central reports that the capital club is one of the teams in the running to sign River Plate wonderkid Claudio Echeverri from River Plate. AC Milan, Real Madrid, Manchester City and Inter Milan are cited as the other clubs eyeing the 17-year-old. 

In Argentina, TyC Sports (h/t Sempre Milan) claims an asking price of €21 million has been set. Additionally, the teenager can opt for an Italian passport, which is why AC Milan’s management has enquired.

Meanwhile, River Plate, who know what type of talent they have, want to insert a release clause in a new contract worth no less than €25 million to ensure Los Millionarios get a significant slice as big European clubs continue to express interest.
