Maximo Perrone signs for Las Palmas
Perrone is seen as a big part of City’s long-term plans and has been compared to teammate Kevin De Bruyne for his ability to provide eye-of-the-needle passes from central midfield. Because of this, there will be no option to buy clause included in Perrone’s contract at Pio Pio.
Perrone was signed by Pep Guardiola’s men in January from Argentinian club Velez Sarsfield- whom Perrone joined at the age of just six years old. In March, Perrone received his first call-up to the Argentinian senior national team by World Cup-winning head coach Lionel Scaloni.
The Buenos Aires-born ace made his Premier League debut for the Citizens during his side’s comfortable 4-1 victory at Bournemouth last season and played a big part during the club’s pre-season tour of Asia last month.
