Mexican giants in pole position to sign 22-year-old Man City forward

Man City attacker Uriel Antuna has agreed to make a move back to Mexico, amid interest from LA Galaxy, in a deal worth a reported £9.3m. He has vast potential and can become a top-class attacker if he continuous improvement.

Mexico international has spent the season on loan at LA Galaxy, playing alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic in the MLS. After initially refusing a move to Chivas, Uriel has been convinced after the giants from his home country offered him around four times his current wage to join them.

After a reported meeting between Antuna and club bosses, a deal was agreed with Cityzens for a transfer valued at nearly £9.3m. Amid the 22-year-old winger’s initial reluctance, the meeting appears to have persuaded him to reconsider his stance and reports say he will  “shortly sign his deal”.

Mexican attacker has had a solid campaign, scoring six times and assisting a further six goals across only over thirty matches, many from the bench. This led to LA Galaxy attempting to secure his services on a more permanent basis, but the US side quickly discovered they couldn’t compete with the wage package Chivas were offering.
