According to a statement from Lucas Martinez Quarta’s representative Gustavo Goni, speaking to TNT Sports, River Plate will ‘have to sell‘ their centre-back – with Man City firmly in the running to capture the 23-year-old according to this report.
Quarta, who has started 19 games for the Argentine outfit this season, is reportedly a target for the Sky Blues and could arrive at the Etihad Stadium in a swap deal with compatriot and long-time City defender Nicolas Otamendi.
Would you swap Otamendi for Quarta?
Yes, do the deal
No, Otamendi can still flourish
Despite having a brilliant 2017/2018 Centurions campaign, where Otamendi managed 33 league starts, the 32-year-old has somewhat failed to replicate that form under Pep Guardiola this season – resulting in some Sky Blues hoping we land Quarta.

Bring Skriniar in as a replacement for Kompany, Replace Stones with Upamecano. Swap Otamendi for Martinez and promote Eric Garcia
