Manchester City are in a tussle with local rivals Manchester United and Italian giants Inter Milan over the signing of Argentine starlet Bruno Zuculini - and look set to prevail.

According to The Sun, the 20-year-old midfielder is poised to opt for the Etihad Stadium over Old Trafford and the San Siro as he looks set to land a lucrative transfer in January or the summer.

Manchester United manager David Moyes' scouts haven't been the only ones to be impressed with Zuculini, but it looks as though their powers of persuasion have been outdone by the negotiators at Manchester City.

The report claims Citizens boss Manuel Pellegrini will be getting a very highly-rated youngster for as little as £1.5million - said to be something of a steal - because of the financial troubles at his club in Argentina, Racing Club.

A defensive midfielder is considered by many to be a vital target for Manchester United, though Zuculini may be a touch inexperienced for the Premier League title holders' current pressing needs.

However, he is being tipped for big things in his homeland since making his debut for Racing at only 17 - he is yet to make a senior appearance for the Argentina national team, though it is not expected to be long before he does.
