The name Juan Manuel Iturbe will be well known to readers of this site, as it seems every week we’re showing yet another goal from the ‘New Messi.’
For those of you who’ve never heard of him- obviously first time visitors- he’s a 17 year old who currently plies his trade in the Paraguayan Divison One, but is set to join Porto in June when he turns 18.
The rumour-mill is rife with talk of a deal already being in place that would see Iturbe join United after a years European apprenticeship at Porto.
Iturbe plays for the Argentine under 20’s team -hence the Messi comparisons- and although he’s only young and has yet to play at the very top level, it’s difficult not to get excited by him.
His latest strike came for his club Cerro Porteno in the league clash away at Sol De America where Iturbe scored the third in a 3-2 win.
