The European champions are reported to have paid around £12.5million for a player who has made just six appearances for the Buenos Aires club having been given his debut by former City defender Matin Demichelis. 

Echeverri captained Argentina at the Under-17 World Cup and made a name for himself with a hat-trick in the 3-0 quarter-final win over rivals Brazil.

He follows the same path as fellow Argentine Julian Alvarez who moved to City from River in 2022.
