Report: 'New Aguero' chooses Atletico over Man City and Juventus

Atletico Madrid

Angel Correa, a young Argentina forward who is likened to Sergio Aguero, is reportedly set to choose Atletico Madrid over Manchester City and Juventus.

San Lorenzo rising star Angel Correa has been much hyped in recent months and is frequently compared to Sergio Aguero and Juan Roman Riquelme, which is probably why several top European clubs are keen to sign him.

The 19-year-old can either play as a conventional striker or in a deeper-lying role and has shown talent in each position.

Correa has been frequently watched by scouts from various teams reportedly including Barcelona, Arsenal and Napoli as well as Juventus, Atletico Madrid and Manchester City.

According to Tuttomercatoweb it is Atletico who are set to win the battle for the gifted forward's signature.

The site reports that contact has been made between the player's agent and Atletico officials and talks have gone well.

A deal worth around £6.6m is on the table with a five-year deal reportedly being offered for the player's approval.

It remains to be seen whether Juventus, Manchester City or any of Correa's other suitors launch a challenge.
