Julian Alvarez to Manchester City is already a done and completed deal, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who claims the two teams have agreed on a €18.5 million cost.
Julian Alvarez’s probable move to Manchester City has been the topic of conversation for the past week.
Initially, rumours from a number of high-profile writers in Argentina stated that Manchester City was close to signing Alvarez, who is widely regarded as one of the most sought-after young forwards in the country.
Several English-based publications afterwards verified the Blues’ interest in the 21-year-old, with the prevailing consensus indicating that he will be loaned back to River Plate for the rest of the season.
After a week of speculation, Manchester City fans have been enthralled by transfer guru Fabrizio Romano’s three-word slogan: ‘Here We Go.’
Julian Alvarez to Manchester City, according to Romano, is a done deal, with an agreement confirmed last week, as expected. River Plate will reportedly receive €18.5 million in compensation, including bonuses and taxes.
Alvarez will return to River Plate until the end of the season, as predicted, after signing a five-year contract. However, no information on what Manchester City plans to do with the young talent after that has been released.
It’s unclear whether he’ll be considered a natural replacement for Sergio Agüero.
Alvarez’s fame has increased as a result of his outstanding contributions in the final third during the South American season of 2021.
Last season, he scored 24 goals and added 15 assists in 46 games across all competitions, indicating that he has a lot of potential.
United, Atletico Madrid, AC Milan, and Inter Milan were all interested in signing Alvarez in a competition between some of Europe’s best teams.
Even if City lacks the tradition of those teams, they do have a near-certain possibility of success and the opportunity to work under Pep Guardiola.
The Citizens’ offer corresponds to rumors that Alvarez’s contract, which was set to expire in December, included a release clause worth between £15 million and £17 million.

And, given that he has already earned five caps for Argentina, it could end up being a steal or the foundations of a huge profit.
However, their window-long quest to get Harry Kane failed, and Guardiola was left empty-handed – but a club-record £100 million move for Jack Grealish was still completed.
Despite the club’s lack of official word, confirmation is likely in the following days.
