Premier League defending champions Manchester City have reportedly sealed a deal for Peruvian youngster Kluiverth Aguilar.

"It is a club with players, a coach and fans that are all extraordinary. My goal is to become an outstanding player in the first team.

"I am glad that the possibility of moving to Europe presented itself to me while I am an Alianza player."

According to SunSport, the deal might be a record transfer for the Peruvian club since they began selling players abroad.

However, they are no aliens to deals with big European clubs having previously offloaded former Chelsea striker Claudio Pizarro to Werder Bremen back in 1999.

In 2004 Peruvian speedster Jefferson Farfan left the club to join Dutch giants PSV and most recently starred for Lokomotiv Moscow in Russia.

Reports from the club claim they are still willing to spend big when the transfer window opens to re-jig their club for the future.
