It has been reported that Premier League giants Manchester United are ready to take Juan Manuel Iturbe off the hands of Porto.
The People have reported that Iturbe, as soon as he turns 18, will sign for Porto,.
However, insiders say his stay there will be a short one – with United ready to come calling as soon as he is acclimatised to European football.
Porto and United have a close relationship and the player will be cleared to head to England as soon as Ferguson thinks he is ready.
Agent Gustavo Mascardi was in Portugal last month to sort out the fees involved in Iturbe’s transfer to Porto. The Portuguese giants are paying a fee of about £800,000 to be split by his former clubs Cerro Porteno of Paraguay and Quilmes of Argentina.
