A group of European giants are preparing a battle to sign Argentinian wonderkid Alex Luna. According to the Mirror, Manchester United, AC Milan and several other European clubs are seriously interested in the 16-year-old. He currently plays for Atletico Rafaela and he is considered to be one of the most talented players of his generation.
The report from the Mirror states that the youngster is a striker who is able to score a goal but is also able to play from the wings to assist his teammates. He has been compared with Sergio Aguero in recent months. The Argentinian club has revealed that they have already turned down a total of seven requests from other clubs.
He has also been on the wanted list of Argentina’s greatest clubs Boca Juniors and River Plate. However, due to the interest from Europe it is expected that Luna will be continuing his career outside of South-America. It has been reported that United want to sign the youngster and loan him back to Rafaela. The forward will then be allowed to join the Premier League giants once he turns 18 in 2022.
