Transfer: Pep Guardiola’s Man City sign Argentina midfielder
Manchester City have signed Argentine Maximo Perrone from Velez Sarsfield.
The formalities of the deal were completed this January, as the parties involved had already reached an agreement in December.
The 20-year-old Perrone plays as a defensive midfielder and has recorded 33 appearances for Velez this season.
He has scored twice from his defensive midfield position and provided three assists.
Pep Guardiola has one reliable defensive midfielder in the person of Rodri, as Kalvin Phillips, who joined the club last summer, has not hit the ground running.
Phillips has not found his feet at the Etihad Stadium, playing just 152 minutes for City this season.
Perrone could give Guardiola more options to work with in the future.
