Julian Alvarez is set to be offered a new contract by Manchester City after bursting onto the scene and making a big impact at the World Cup.
  • Alvarez joined in summer of 2022
  • Argentine forward starred at World Cup
  • Set to be rewarded with bumper contract

WHAT HAPPENED? Alvarez has impressed at Manchester City since he completed a move to the reigning Premier League champions for just £14 million ($17m) in the summer of 2022. He has made a big early impression in English football and has eight goals for the Blues in 23 appearances.

THE BIGGER PICTURE: According to The Times, City have been so pleased with the 22-year-old that they want to reward him with an extension, despite his current deal running until the summer of 2027.

AND WHAT'S MORE: Alvarez also helped his country to global glory in Qatar, starting six out of seven of Argentina's World Cup matches and was also their second-highest goalscorer in the tournament, behind Lionel Messi. He has been likened to Gabriel Jesus by Pep Guardiola, with Manchester City finding another forward that offers a bit of everything.
