Manchester United are ready to pay a release clause to sign prodigy Julian Alvarez, with the Premier League giants to beat Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich for the transfer
Manchester United are said to be willing to pay the release clause for River Plate prodigy Julian Alvarez as he looks to make changes in the January transfer window.
Barcelona, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Bayern Munich all love the award-winning 21-year-old who has been in amazing form in his homeland but, according to Sport, the Red Devils are ready to make a move.
Alvarez is one of the most wanted young strikers in world football
Since joining the River Plate first-team, Alvarez has won the Copa Libertadores, Copa Argentina and Primera Division, among other trophies, as part of his country’s squad for their victorious Copa campaign. America last summer.
He was the Primera Division’s top scorer in 2021 with 20 goals in 35 games, while also being named South American Footballer of the Year.
And, thanks to his release clause, he can be clawed back for just £ 17million, which could be an incredible windfall given the potential he is showing right now.
It is believed that the striker’s agent Fernando Hidalgo will travel to England soon to discuss a possible move.
Alvarez already wins trophies when he is only 21
Alvarez even won the Copa America alongside Lionel Messi in 2021
Alvarez’s contract with River Plate ends in December, so the fees would be welcome rather than having their starlet – nicknamed « The Spider » – leave for free in 12 months.
Man United are ready to make the decision to sign the player as they could well lose Edinson Cavani and Anthony Martial in the near future.
Cavani’s contract expires this summer with Barcelona and Juventus interested in signing the veteran striker, while French ace Martial has made it clear he wants to leave as soon as possible with linked Sevilla.
