Borussia Dortmund set to sign Boca Juniors teenager Leonardo Balerdi

Borussia Dortmund are set to sign 19-year-old Boca Juniors defender Leonardo Balerdi, the Argentine club's chairman said on Friday.

Daniel Angelici told a Buenos Aires radio station that Balerdi would fly to Germany on Monday and, subject to a medical, sign what sources inside the club told Reuters was a five-year deal for a fee of €16 million.

Balerdi has played only five games for the Argentine giants, but is one of the most highly rated young players at the club.

Usually a central defender, he is currently with the Argentina Under-20 team preparing for the South American championship that begins in Chile on Jan. 17.
