“I feel confident I can flourish here. The style of play Pep encourages is exciting and I can’t wait to be a part of it.
“City has an amazing recent history of Argentinian players and I want to put my stamp on the Club in the same way Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta and Carlos Tevez did.
“I am so thankful for everything River Plate did for me and I want to thank the fans, staff and players for their support.
