Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Maximo Perrone made it clear that he did not want to be loaned out by any of the clubs interested in him.
The Premier League champions have confirmed the signing of Argentina under-20 international Maximo Perrone from Velez Sarsfield.
The 20-year-old midfielder will make the switch from Argentina to the Etihad Stadium on a five-and-half year deal next month, after making his debut for his now-former club in March 2022.
He will join Manchester City following the conclusion of the South American under-20 Championships next month, and will train with Pep Guardiola’s first-team.
Guardiola is credited with having a significant role in the success of negotiations, described by The Athletic as being ‘key to the deal’, after calling Perrone during negotiations to convince him over a move to the Etihad.
Perrone made it clear that he did not want to be loaned out by any of the clubs interested in him and will therefore remain at Man City for the rest of the current season.
The report was shared on Twitter by City Xtra and it attracted plenty of attention from the club’s supporters.
“Great mentality. He gets it”
“He knows what he wants, love that.”
“Good mentality to have.”
“Excited for this signing.”
“This is the mentality to have and tbh this is perfect time for him to come in and show Pep that he wants it more than anybody else.”
