Alvarez signed for Manchester City in the winter of 2022 from River Plate, but the striker remained at his boyhood club until July where he forged a reputation as a deadly goalscorer. Despite his age and lack of experience in European football, Alvarez has played a key role in Manchester City’s push for success this season.
Julian himself expressed his happiness to extend his Man City stay, saying, “This is a very proud moment for me and my family. For a club like City to put their faith in me like this is amazing.
“I have been really pleased with my first season here, but I have plenty more I can do. I know I can be better, and City offer me everything I need to fulfil my potential.
“I want to thank the manager, the coaches and everyone at City who works behind the scenes for everything they have done for me since I joined in the summer. I could not have asked for more. This is a club that looks after its players, and I have felt so supported throughout my time here.
“I am now focused on getting better and helping City win trophies.”
The young midfielder has made a total of 33 appearances in all competitions so far this season, contributing ten goals and three assists in the process. Alvarez’s performances on the pitch have earned him high praise from fans and pundits alike, with many tipping him for a bright future in the sport.
Manchester City’s decision to extend Alvarez’s contract comes as no surprise, as the club sees him as a vital part of their future plans.
