Manchester City are looking for a striker and, according to Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the market, Pep Guardiola might have chosen one in particular: Dario Sarmiento. The striker is just 17 years old and is a member of Estudiantes La Plata. He could be signed for as much as 19 million.
At the Etihad Stadium they think about the future. It is not enough to leave the team shored up for the next season, you have to make a move to guarantee the project in the long term.
In that sense, Guardiola already has talent on his wish list. Dario Sarmiento, forward of Estudiantes La Plata, reportedly is a target for the Spanish coach.
In fact, according to Fabrizio Romano, City are already involved in his transfer. The negotiations, this source affirms, have already begun.
Manchester City are in advanced negotiations to sign Darío Ariel Sarmiento, 17 years old from Estudiantes.
The opening bid is around €19m [add ons included!]. If the agreement will be reached, he’d arrive on June 2021 to plan about his future with ‘City group’ #mcfc @CLMerlo

City could tie up this talent of Estudiantes La Plata, who is not yet of age, for about 19 million euros. He would arrive in England in June 2021.
City’s interest in Dario Sarmiento is longstanding. Already in the summer they made an offer for him. Then they put some 8 million euros on the table of Estudiantes La Plata, a figure that was rejected outright. Now, and always according to the above mentioned source, the Argentine team could give green light to his transfer.
