Man City target 'new Aguero'
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini will attempt to steal a march on his rivals across the continent by swooping for the player already dubbed the ‘new Sergio Aguero’, Instituto’s 18-year-old striker Paulo Dybala, the Daily Mirror has reported.
The Mirror claims Dybala has been watched already by both Milan clubs, Real Madrid and Chelsea, while Serie A side Palermo were thought to have guaranteed the first option on the player, only for it to transpire they were speaking with an agent who lacked the authority to sign off on the deal.
Dybala’s club are said to be ready to sell the teenager for around £5m and City are believed to be in prime position to bring him to Europe. Dybala has a Polish grandfather and is thought to qualify for an Italian passport, removing the obstacle of a work permit and potentially smoothing the way for Mancini to make his move. Dybala scored 17 goals in his first season in the first team of Instituto, a second division side in Argentina.
