Milan, Juventus and Liverpool and all tracking the development of Villarreal’s promising young central defender Mateo Musacchio.

The Argentine has emerged as one of the brightest talents in the Primera Division this season, playing a pivotal role in the Yellow Submarines’ rise to third spot in the table, as well as progression to the latter stages of the Europa League. Spain reports that the 20-year-old’s displays have not gone unnoticed across Europe, and as he closes in on his first year anniversary in the first team at El Madrigal, a trio of top clubs look set to increase their advances.

Serie A giants Milan and Juventus are both searching for long-term defensive options, and are following his performances closely while Liverpool, under new ownership and with money available, are also keen.

Musacchio’s current deal expires in 2014, but with all three sides capable of trebling the player’s salary, should Villarreal receive a substantial offer, they may be forced to part company with one of their rising stars.
