Man City boss Guardiola adds new wonderkid signing Maximo Perrone to his Champions League squad
- Perrone included in UCL squad
- Joined Manchester City in January
- Replaces Cancelo in roster
WHAT HAPPENED? The reigning Premier League champions signed the 20-year-old midfielder from Velez Sarsfield for around £8 million ($10m) and he has immediately taken his place in their Champions League squad. Perrone replaces full-back Joao Cancelo, who left the club to join Bayern Munich on loan until the end of the season.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: The Citizens have followed Perrone since he enjoyed an eye-catching first season in the first team at Velez Sarsfield. They take on RB Leipzig in the first leg of their round of 16 tie on February 22.
