In recent months, the Argentine forward has been acquiring more prominence for the Catalan coach . He considers that he is a fundamental piece for the team, and that is why he increasingly pairs him with Erling Haaland in the XI.
In recent days, several Argentine and some Spanish media have linked the future of Julián Álvarez with Real Madrid .
The Merengue club has always been a club that has captivated the footballer, and that is why he himself would be delighted to have the possibility of defending his shirt one day.
In March 2023, the player renewed his contract until June 30, 2028, so his transfer would have to be negotiated with the English club .
However, some journalists claim that Julián reached a private agreement with Manchester City to allow him to leave for 50 million euros in the event that an offer arrives.
Pep Guardiola does not want his forward to leave , although he does not want the club to be an impediment for Julián to be the master of his destiny:
“If Julián asks us to leave and brings the transfer money that we need… We do not want him to leave, but if he requests it we can’t do anything,” says the Manchester City coach.
Depends on Mbappé
The Parisian star conditions the Real Madrid project. She is the Madrid club’s main objective for the forward, and her transfer bonus and salary is large enough to think about more signings for the attack. For this reason, Julián Álvarez is option B, behind Mbappé and Haaland .
Starting in January, Real Madrid will make a decision, because if Mbappé refuses to sign, it is very likely that they will already begin to work on the possibility of signing the Argentine forward.
