Manchester City U23 winger Benjamín Garré is set to sign for Racing Club on a four-and-a-half year contract, according to Racing De Alma.
As reported by City Xtra on Sunday night, an agreement was in place for the 19-year-old to return to his home country, with his fellow academy teammates wishing him well on social media throughout the weekend.
The teenager signed for the club back in 2016, and became one of the first signings of the Pep Guardiola era. The deal itself was marred in controversy, almost leading to a FIFA transfer ban as a result of the club’s conduct in luring the winger from Velez Sarsfield.
According to Leandro Adonio Belli, Garré is set to travel to Buenos Aires ‘in the next few hours‘ to sign his contract with the current Primera División champions. Manchester City are set to receive a fee of $2.5 million for the transfer.
