English Premier League outfit Man United are the latest to join the race for Argentina wonderkid Alex Luna who is already being chased by Italian Serie A giants AC Milan.

While either of the clubs can sign Alex Luna this summer transfer window, it is understood that he will not arrive until 2022 because of his age and the contract he has with his current team.

The 16-year-old who plies his trade for Ateltico Rafaela was in top form in the 2020 calendar year, scoring a total of 16 goals before the coming of the coronavirus pandemic which ended the league in Argentina.

Alex Luna has caught the attention of a number of European clubs because of his dribbling skills and his direct attacking ability. No doubt that he is one of the most wanted players in the world.

It is understood that Atletico Rafaela have turned down over seven offers from clubs for the service of Alex Luna on a loan term because signing him on a permanent deal could be difficult.

The likes of Barcelona, PSG, AS Roma, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Arsenal, and Man City are all paying attention to Alex Luna and they will all take their chances of snapping him up when it comes.
