Multiple media outlets are covering the transfer saga of Julian Alvarez, who is heavily linked with a move to Manchester United from River Plate.
According to La Gazzetta Dello Sport, Man Utd are in pole position to secure the signing of the Argentine forward. Alfredo Pedulla claims that the likes of Inter, AC Milan and Fiorentina are interested in the South American and to sign him a single payment of his release clause should be made.
The famous Italian journalist states that the 21-year-old has got a release clause of £21million (after taxes) and the Serie A sides would have difficulties matching the fee. On the other hand, the Red Devils have said that they can pay the termination clause.
However, GdS state that the Old Trafford outfit want to sort the future of Anthony Martial first. The Frenchman could leave the club in the January transfer window.
In Argentina, Ole (press image provided below) have covered a story and reported that right after the defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers, Man Utd officials met with Alvarez’ representatives, who expect a contract proposal until 2026 from the PL side. As yet, no terms have been offered.
Man Utd have not won the Premier League title since the 2012-13 campaign and in that season, Robin van Persie netted 26 league goals. The retired Dutchman is still the last striker/player to score over 20 PL goals in a season for the Red Devils.
The current strike-force consists of legendary forwards like Ronaldo and Cavani but their best days are over and United need a quality young goal-scorer for the future.
In your view, should the 20-time English champions pay £21million to bring Julian Alvarez to Old Trafford?
