Man City offer $10m for Estudiantes starlet Dario Sarmiento

Manchester City have made a bid of $10m (€8.3m) plus add-ons for Estudiantes super-talent Dario Sarmiento.

According to TyC Sports and Olé, City’s offer could reach $15m (€12.5m) if all objectives are met.

The 17-year-old winger is already appearing for the Estudiantes first team in Argentina’s top flight.

Sarmiento is an Argentina youth international and scored four goals in six games for their under-16 side.

Dario Sarmiento ● Unreal Talent ● Crazy Skills 🇦🇷

Any deal would likely see Sarmiento remain at Estudiantes for the time being due to his age.

Sarmiento is still a minor and doesn’t turn 18 until March next year, meaning he would not be able to get a work permit.

Estudiantes are likely to accept City’s offer because in the context of the Coronavirus crisis, it is a fortune for the club.

One of Argentina’s great young talents, Sarmiento has won praise from the likes of Juan Sebastian Veron and Alejandro Sabello.
