Manchester United, Liverpool and Real Madrid to battle for £8m midfield prodigy

Federico Redondo has made a name for himself at Argentinos Juniors and is expected to move to Europe next year

European football powerhouses Liverpool, Real Madrid, and Manchester United are reportedly locked in a transfer battle to sign the talented Federico Redondo. The young Argentine defensive midfielder has been making waves in the Argentine Primera División and is now on the radar of these top clubs.

Redondo, an Argentina youth international, has been nothing short of a revelation over the past year. He has emerged as a regular player at his club and is considered one of the finest young players globally in his position. His maturity and quality have not gone unnoticed by scouts from Europe's elite clubs.

Federico Redondo carries an illustrious football lineage as he is the son of Real Madrid legend Fernando Redondo. According to reports, both Spanish giants Real Madrid and several leading Premier League clubs are keen on signing this promising talent.

The Argentina U-20 star's contract with Argentinos Juniors is nearing its end; hence he could be available for transfer for just £8 million - a bargain price considering his potential.

Liverpool are undergoing significant changes within their squad, particularly focusing on strengthening their midfield positions. They had targeted a young defensive midfielder last summer but failed to secure any signings. Therefore, securing Redondo would be an excellent addition to their squad given his proven abilities.

As United seek to replace Casemiro, Manchester United is reportedly keeping a close eye on the situation

Manchester United also have shown interest in signing this prodigy as they seek a replacement for aging Casemiro. Given that they don't possess substantial financial muscle during this window period, securing Redondo would be financially feasible while adding value to their team composition.

Federico was instrumental in Argentina's FIFA U-20 World Cup matches earlier this year which further boosted his reputation internationally. His slender frame coupled with unique skillset draws comparisons with Barcelona legend Sergio Busquets, adding to his appeal.

In 2023, Redondo featured in 42 games for Argentinos Juniors, scoring two goals and assisting two more. Although he can move for free in the summer, it is highly likely that one of these European giants will secure his signature sooner rather than later.

This transfer battle among Liverpool, Manchester United and Real Madrid for Federico Redondo's signature underlines the young Argentine's immense talent and potential. Whichever club manages to sign him will undoubtedly be securing a star of the future.
