Julian Alvarez in talks with Aston Villa, rejects Orlando City MLS bid


Julian Alvarez has reportedly rejected a bid to join Orlando City in the MLS while his agent is in talks with Aston Villa.

The 21 year old River Plate forward is a wanted man. Per a report by Hernan Castillo of TNT Sports, Alvarez turned down a bid from Orlando City in the MLS. According to Castillo, the MLS club bid $10 million dollars for him but he has turned it down as he prefers to play in Europe.

According to a separate report by ESPN, Aston Villa are in contacts with his agent over a potential move to the Premier League. The club recently signed Leon Bailey but should the Copa America winner join them, he would become the third Argentine at the club alongside Emiliano Martinez and Emiliano Buendia.


  1. I think Villa WAS interested in Julian Alvarez but now have just agreed to sign Leon Bailey from Leverkusen instead. I am not sure after Bailey if they are still after Alvarez as they both are attacking wingers.

  2. I am a bit confused by Aston Villa right now, if they buy Alvarez that will have been three right wingers in one window, not to mention they already have Bertrand Traore. I am guessing maybe they will use Bailey as a back up to Grealish but even then Alvarez will probably be second or third choice in most positions he can play. Oh well, maybe it could work out if they send him on loan somewhere and develop him well. Let’s see what happens

  3. Aston Villa is playing smart ! They are getting quality Argentine players for low prices and selling their over rated players for 100million!! LMAO!!
