Real Madrid sets sights on future star -Claudio Echeverri
Real Madrid is targeting Argentina’s U17 wonder, Claudio Echeverri, in a bold bid to reclaim their attacking prowess. Los Blancos appear to be planning a decade-long project with an eye on the future amid speculation about Kylian Mbappe’s possible arrival.
According to Diario Sport, Real Madrid has sent scouts to the FIFA U17 World Cup in Indonesia, with their eyes set squarely on River Plate’s growing star, Claudio Echeverri.
The 17-year-old prodigy recently captivated the football world by scoring an amazing hat trick in Argentina’s 3-0 quarter-final win over arch-rival Brazil.
Echeverri’s outstanding performance not only showcased his potential but also proved his readiness for top-tier football. After breaking into the River Plate first team in 2023, the young striker is now on Real Madrid’s radar, who sees him as an important component in their squad-building strategy.
Echeverri’s current value is €20 million, but it is projected to rise in the following weeks as demand for his services grows.
However, the Spanish giants may face heavy competition from Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City, both of which have expressed an interest in signing the Argentine sensation.
As the transfer saga unfolds, the football world awaits to see if Real Madrid can successfully lure the young starlet to the Santiago Bernabeu, adding another chapter to their storied legacy.
