    I was looking forward to some home base players being called up again..
    Enzo Fernandez from RP is looking solid and zeballos from Boca as well.. I would like to see these guys given a chance

  2. Julián Álvarez to Manchester City from River Plate, done deal and here we go! Agreement confirmed as expected last week. €18.5m fee to River with bonuses/taxes. Julián will sign for five years. 🕷🇦🇷 #MCFC
