Aguero’s successor and the best talent from South America after Neymar.. Manchester City wins Argentine Alvarez
Manchester City are close to signing Argentine talent Julian Alvarez, striker of River Plate.
And media reports said that Manchester City will pay 18 and a half million euros, with additions and variants, to the Argentine team to obtain the international midfielder.
Alvarez, 21, will sign his contract until June 2027, and the “heavenly team” seems confident of completing the deal with the player and River Plate this week.
Alvarez will not join the Citizens in January, and is expected to remain on loan with the Argentine team until next summer.
Manchester City sees Julian as “a talent for the future and a potential star”, but the deal will not affect their plans to sign a major European striker next summer, as Spanish coach Pep Guardiola wants.
And Man City managed to outperform the top Europeans who were betrothed to Alvarez, who was said to be the best player from South America since the Brazilian star Neymar.
He could have started his football career in the League, because he had an experience with Real Madrid at the age of 11, and although the rules allowed Los Blancos to add him to his academy, he preferred to move to the ranks of his compatriot in River, and won the Libertadores Cup with him, and was the season’s top scorer. Argentine league last.
With these numbers and specifications, it is no wonder that he is called the “actual heir” of former City legend Sergio Aguero, who retired last year due to illness.
Alvarez grew up in the northern town of Calchin in the Argentine province of Córdoba, and started playing at the local club, Atlético Calcin, before embarking on a journey to find a club to play in.
After an experience with Boca Juniors, the traditional Grim River, he went to Spain, specifically to Real Madrid.
In 2011, Alvarez played in the youth championship in the “Royal” shirt and scored two goals. Real Madrid was keen to keep him in the team, but his inclusion was impossible. Because his family did not want to leave Argentina and Alvarez did not want to be separated from them, things did not come to a happy conclusion
Alvarez told an Argentine newspaper, “I was playing in the junior championship with Real Madrid, and I was 11 years old, but Meringue could contract permanently with players aged 13 and over.”
“To join Real at that time, my whole family had to move to Madrid and settle there. That’s why I came back to Cordoba.”
