Julián Álvarez comments on becoming a Manchester City player


Julián Álvarez has spoken about becoming a Manchester City player.

Álvarez is about to join Manchester City for pre-season as the 22 year old has played his final match for River Plate. The Argentine will be unveiled to Manchester City fans on Sunday.

The forward will wear the number 19 shirt and spoke to the Manchester City website . Here is what he had to say:

“I am incredibly happy and I feel ready to play for City. This is, without doubt, one of the biggest teams in world football. You only have to see what this team has won in the last decade to understand the quality of the setup.

“I feel confident I can flourish here. The style of play Pep encourages is exciting and I can’t wait to be a part of it.

“City has an amazing recent history of Argentinian players and I want to put my stamp on the Club in the same way Sergio Aguero, Pablo Zabaleta and Carlos Tevez did.

“I am so thankful for everything River Plate did for me and I want to thank the fans, staff and players for their support.

“But I am now 100% focused on Manchester City. I want to give my best to this club, help my teammates and contribute to Manchester City’s success.”


  1. This kid looks smart….let’s hope he uses it to improve his skills and his game in general

  2. In less than a year from now, Di Maria will retire from the international futbol. Messi? We don’t know, it could be also after the WC or even after the WC 2026. But when both Di Maria and Messi retire, 2 starting forward spots are empty. Lautaro will be the only one who will be there for a long time.

    That means the likes of Julian Alvarez, Nico Gonzales, Dybala, Correa, or even the younger generation of Garnacho/Soule/Luka becoming extremely important. We are talking about 2 empty spots in attack.

    • Yeah huge gap to fill. And the end of that golden generation with otamendi also leaving after the wc. They deserved a wc. That generation individual wise all played for top European clubs. I think except 1 -2 all played mostly in city, United, barca, liverpool, real, juventus😔. In 2010 they got in the hands of a wrong manager and all were young. In 2014 they all hit their prime but destiny just ignored them. In 2018 again they got in the hands of a wrong manager and all past their prime. Underachieved golden generation of all time.

  3. It is sometimes a blessing in disguise the arrival of haaland. Coz it’s always a bonus for Alvarez when he outshines haaland atleast in his starting days. Even if he doesn’t it is not that much of a problem. The media and hype all behind haaland.
