Real Madrid join two European giants in the race for the sensational Argentine defender


Valentin Barco is the new name that is beginning to leave its mark on Argentine football.

The Argentinian left back has excelled with Boca Juniors since he entered the first team and thanks to his fantastic performances, he has aroused the interest of top European clubs.

Manchester City and Juventus have been chasing him for a long time, but Real Madrid have recently joined the race.

CalcoMercato has reported that the talented full-back is ready to leave Boca Juniors in the January transfer window and take a step forward in his career.


The 19-year-old has a value of 20 million euros, which is not a problem for teams like Real Madrid, Manchester City and Juventus.

Los Blancos are monitoring Barco’s performances as Frenchman Ferland Mendy is expected to leave the Santiago Bernabeu.

This season, Barco scored one goal and assisted three others in 22 official matches with Boca Juniors.
