BUENOS AIRES – Manchester City have reached an agreement with Estudiantes to sign 18-year-old winger Dario Sarmiento, the Argentina top division club said in a statement.

Estudiantes announced the transfer late on Friday, saying Argentina youth international Sarmiento will become a City player on July 1.

Sarmiento became the second-youngest player to make a debut for Estudiantes when he came on as a substitute against Huracan in 2019, aged 16 years and seven months.

He has represented his country at Under-16, Under-17 and Under-20 levels and has made 22 first-team appearances for Estudiantes.
