Man City agree with Aguilar's move to the club in 2021

According to the Peruvian club, Alianza Lima, Kluiverth Aguilar will join Man City after he turns 18 in May 2021.

As Alianza Lima announed on Saturday, Manchester City have agreed to sign the 16-year-old right-back, Kluiverth Aguilar, from the Peruvian club when the teenage footballer turns 18.

Having featured in 9 Alianza's games as a member of the first team from the very start of his career, Aguilar has also played for the Peruvian club in both legs of the Primera Division final against Deportivo Binacional.

The teenager, who has earlier said he looks to Dani Alves as a role model, will join Man City after he turns 18 on May 5, 2021.

"Going to City is something big in my career. I'm happy they have signed me," said Aguilar.

"It is a club with players, a coach and fans that are all extraordinary. My goal is to become an outstanding player in the first team.

"I am glad that the possibility of moving to Europe presented itself to me while I am an Alianza player."

A statement from Alianza, who will receive a percentage of any future sale, said: "Within its policy of signing players with great potential, Manchester City saw in Kluiverth Aguilar a talent capable of playing at the highest level.

"Alianza Lima is proud that a footballer from its team can link his future to that of one of the most prestigious clubs in the world."

Aguilar could well follow in the footsteps of Yangel Herrera, who joined the Premier League champions from Atletico Venezuela in 2017 and was sent on loan to New York City FC. After a spell at Huesca, Herrera is now at Granada.

New York City are part of the City Football Group, which also owns or has a stake in Melbourne City, Montevideo City Torque, Girona, Yokohama F. Marinos, Sichuan Jiuniu and Mumbai City.
