The president of Argentine side Racing Club Victor Blanco says that midfield starlet Bruno Zuculini has agreed a deal with Manchester City.

The 20-year-old is considered one of the best young prospects in South American soccer and a host of Europe's elite sides have been chasing him.

However, Blanco says that Zuculini will be heading to the Etihad Stadium in June.

"Every season Racing puts together a side to battle for the title, and then nothing happens," Blanco admitted to Argentine newspaper El Dia.

"So we wanted to keep the side and reinforce it, but we have several highly coveted gems from the outside, such as Luciano Vietto, Rodrigo De Paul and Bruno Zuculini - who has already signed an agreement to leave in June to join Manchester City."

Indeed Vietto could very well be the next player to follow Zuculini out of the Racing door, but his agent feels he will probably stay for now despite some big interest.

Jorge Cyterszpiller told Radio La Red: "Luciano is playing at a very good level and that has made several teams get interested in him and some others keep an eye on him.

"Real Madrid and Liverpool have showed a serious interest, and we already know that exists since last year from Napoli. In addition to that, there are some requests from Germany."
