Quiet Winter Transfer Window: Echeveri/Wilson-Esbrand on loan, 17-year-old French wonderkind on our radar

Bastien Meupiyou

The world’s best team, Manchester City, and the fourth-ranked club in the Premier League, Tottenham, are in a battle for the 17-year-old wonderkid center-back, Bastien Meupiyou.

Bastian is a product of Nantes’ academy, and this season, the player has been added to the senior team.

The talented young defender drew scouts’ attention during the Under-17 World Cup.

French club RC Lens offered €2.5 million for the young lad, but Nantes rejected its proposal. Therefore, at least until July, Meupiyou will remain at Nantes.

Tottenham is considered the underdog in the battle for Rice. Our scouts have already been monitoring the footballer’s situation and quality.

City have been awarded with the longstanding presence of Ruben Dias and Josko Gvardiol. However, Bastian is believed to be the future pillar of City. This young player is versatile and can also play as a defensive midfielder, which has sparked more interest from Pep.

Even more fascinating is that his contract with Nantes expires in 2025 and We could have a significant chance to sign this promising footballer for just 5-6 million.

Our winter transfer window was very quiet, as we only acquired Claudio Echeveri from River Plate and left him there on loan for another 6 months.

Yesterday, Manchester officially announced the loan transfer of 21-year-old Josh Wilson-Esbrand to Cardiff City.
