Juan Manuel Iturbe is a name regular readers of this site will be very familiar with as we’ve been following his progress with a keen eye these past few months.
Iturbe has been dubbed ‘The New Messi’ and has dazzled in his appearances for both club and the Argentine Under 20’s. The 17 year-old current plies his trade in the Paraguayan First Division for Cerra Porteno, but according to widespread reports a deal has been struck which will see him move to Porto after his 18th birthday.
It is widely acknowledged that the move to Porto will be for a year while he gains valuable European experience before a move to Old Trafford. His latest strike was the winner in the league game away at Independiente and is yet another cracker from a player, I for one would love to see at the Theatre of Dreams.
