Julian Alvarez consistently makes an impact for Manchester City. Even when he operates as the second striker behind Erling Haaland.
This is precisely why Julian Alvarez has proven to be an invaluable asset for Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium. Thus, justifying the €23 million investment made to secure his services from River Plate.
This outstanding performance is also drawing interest from clubs like Real Madrid, as reported by Sport. They are eager to acquire his services and strengthen their own squad.
Real Madrid had expressed their interest in acquiring Julian Alvarez even before Manchester City secured his signing. However, the pursuit of Kylian Mbappé seemed to divert their attention from the potential deal.
Will Julian Alvarez leave for Real Madrid?
Nevertheless, there remains optimism in Madrid that a deal for Julian Alvarez could still materialize. The possibility of such a transfer could potentially happen if Manchester City proceeds with the signing of Evan Ferguson.
While it may appear ambitious, if these reports hold any truth, Julian Alvarez’s market value of €60 million could indeed make Real Madrid consider making a move for him.
Despite the continued pursuit of Kylian Mbappé as their primary target, Real Madrid considers him their “priority objective.” However, if they cannot secure his signature on a free transfer next season, they may need to begin exploring alternative options.
So, while the Manchester City striker is currently considered a ‘Plan B’ in their pursuit of the French star, there remains a possibility that he could depart if Evan Ferguson is signed and Erling Haaland renews his contract. In such a scenario, Real Madrid could make a move for him.
