Manchester City completed the signing of Dario Sarmiento for £5.2m.
The 18-year-old came over from Estudiantes and has a sell-on clause of twenty percent.
He told Marca: “The truth is that I don’t know [of any other clubs interested], but as soon as they told me the real possibility of Manchester City, I did not hesitate, it made me very happy and I didn’t want to hear anything else.
“My representatives, Facundo Fraga and Luciano Galletti, told me that they were following me, that they were going to come to see me at a game. That undoubtedly gave me a lot of strength to continue working day by day and motivated to continue improving in my career.
“I trust my representatives a lot and I stay out of all that. I know they came to see me play, then I had some talks with them and now I’m excited to be able to travel and start this new experience at Manchester City.”
Speaking on his compatriot and hero, Sergio Aguero, the forward said, Agüero is a club idol, top scorer and the most winning player in the club’s history. I would have liked to share moments with him so that he could transmit all his experience to me.
“We have not spoken yet, surely now that the competition in Europe is over we will. I really want to learn from [Guardiola], pass on all his experience to me and improve by his side. He is one of the best coaches in the world. With Aguero the same, although now with his signing for Barca he will be a little busier. We will talk.
“I love how [Guardiola’s] teams play. He is one of the best as I said and I am looking forward to putting myself at your service.”
