Manchester City are set to lose out on the signing of Argentine wonderkid Angel Correa.

The San Lorenzo youngster has been dubbed the next Sergio Aguero, despite having a playing style more similar to Carlos Tevez, and has attracted interest from Europe's elite after a series of fine displays.

But MirrorSport understands Atletico Madrid will beat City and Barcelona to his signing, with coach Diego Simeone said to be hugely enthusiastic about his potential.

Correa has six goals in 32 games from midfield this season.
