Real Madrid hope to wrap up the signing of River Plate youngster Mateo Musacchio this weekend.

River chief Hector Grinberg is in Madrid today and hopes to finalise a £2.5 million agreement with Real for the teenager.

"We are going to try to close the operation as soon as possible, but we will also try so the player stays with River on-loan for another year," said Grinberg. "Hopefully we can count on him without problems."
