According to reports, Atletico Madrid will present tough competition for Real Madrid in the hunt to recruit Gonzalo Sosa, a 17-year-old wonderkid from Argentina. Gonzalo Sosa is the topic of interest from Atletico Madrid regarding a potential move in the summer transfer window, according to a report by Spanish publication Defensa Central. Real Madrid is also interested in the 17-year-old wonderkid from Argentina, and the two Spanish powerhouses plan to go on the attack for him as soon as he reaches 18. One of the gems of Argentine football is Gonzalo Sosa, a young prodigy who is excelling at Racing Club de Avellaneda’s youth level. Sosa has spent the most of his formative years with Racing Club and, despite being only 17 years old, he plays for their under-20 team. The Argentine wonderkid, who plays primarily as an attacking midfielder, has impressed with his ability to find teammates in crevasses of open space. Sosa has attracted the interest of some of the most prominent teams in Europe, including Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, while also being compared to Argentine icon Juan Roman Riquelme. When Santiago Solari was the manager of the Spanish club, Real Madrid first expressed an interest. The Merengues have kept a careful eye on Sosa’s development over the past few years, and recent rumors indicate that they are setting up the necessary infrastructure to go on the offensive against him in 2019. The Spanish powerhouses are known for continuously scouring markets in Europe and beyond for the most promising young talent. Real Madrid’s current first-team regulars, who were all adolescent wonderkids when they came at the Santiago Bernabeu, include Federico Valverde, Vinicius Junior, and Rodrygo Goes. But in order to get the 17-year-old Argentine wonderkid, Real Madrid will have to defeat Atletico Madrid in a fierce battle. The Colchoneros have not placed as much emphasis on developing young talent as their nearby rivals, but given Rodrigo De Paul’s problems last season, they may need to sign a talented playmaker. The interest of Real Madrid in the Argentine sensation has lately been confirmed by Sosa’s agency. And according to Defensa Central, Atletico Madrid and Los Blancos will compete for the 17-year-signature old’s next year, with both teams prepared to go on the attack as soon as he turns 18. So March will be an intriguing period in the transfer saga involving Sosa.
