Man City: Julian Alvarez set to stay

Man City: Julian Alvarez set to stay - Manchester City News

Man City star Julian Alvarez is set to stay with the Premier League champions despite rumours of a possible departure.

The Lowdown: Alvarez linked with exit…

The World Cup winner returned to Eastlands a hero after his exploits in Qatar, transferring that form in a Sky Blue jersey when called upon by Pep Guardiola.

Alvarez has scored five goals in six league starts this season with the South American also bagging at least one in every cup competition, including the Champions League.

However, the starlet does have work to do for more starts ahead of in-form trio Jack Grealish, Riyad Mahrez and Phil Foden – who all seem to be above him in Guardiola’s pecking order.

As such, reports have suggested he is ‘open’ to leaving City in the summer to get more game time.

The Latest: Journalist shares Alvarez update…

According to reporter Gaston Edul, via news aggregator ‘All About Argentina’, the 23-year-old ‘will stay’ at City and there is absolute certainty.

He explained:

“Despite some rumours, Julián Álvarez will stay at Manchester City without a doubt.”

The Verdict: Exciting player…

The striker dazzled in Qatar and displayed to the world he is one of football’s most exciting young forwards.

Alvarez scored four goals in seven tournament games for the Argentines, bettered only by superstar teammate Lionel Messi, with City’s gem also ranking in their top five best players overall (WhoScored).

Likened to club legend Sergio Aguero, members of Guardiola’s squad have heaped praise on the former River Plate star and City’s head coach has called him ‘exceptional’.

While he is set to battle for minutes this campaign, there is little denying he could be a star in the making with perseverance and dedication.
