Manchester United splashed the cash to lure Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho in the summer. Still, they are looking to strengthen the attack in winter. After last night’s horror display, they really should.
Lately, the name of Julian Alvarez has been in the focus and according to AS, Man Utd are one of the clubs, who are prepared to pay the release clause of £17million (20 million euros) to sign the forward.
The renowned media outlet have claimed that for the center forward, the main suitors are the Red Devils, who want to finalize the player’s signing immediately.
AS claim that River Plate want to persuade the striker to stay in Argentina for at least one more year so that he will have a better chance to earn a place in the national side for the World Cup in Qatar. For that, club president, Brito, could make him an offer.
At just 21, Alvarez has already won major titles in South American football and it must be remembered that the Argentine starlet is a Copa America winner as well.
In the last campaign, the youngster helped River Plate win their 37th league title. The 5-capped international was the leading goal scorer in the competition with 18 goals. He also provided 7 assists as well.
We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days and will keep you updated.
