Real Madrid reportedly wants to sign a “extraordinary” Man City player for $51 million rather than Haaland.
According to rumors, Real Madrid is planning to sign Julian Alvarez from Manchester City.
This information is from SPORT because it appears that the World Cup champion is still being rumored to be moving on to other teams.
Now that Karim Benzema’s replacement at Real Madrid is still being sought after, it appears that Julian Alvarez has attracted their attention.
Real Madrid is interested in signing Julian Alvarez
The Argentine striker, described as “extraordinary” by Khaldoon Al-Mubarak, has scored two goals in his team’s first four games of the 2023/2024 season.
Many think it is just a matter of time before the former River Plate forward leaves City because he was unable to unseat Erling Haaland as the team’s starting center forward.
Real Madrid, who missed out on Julian Alvarez’s signature when he joined Manchester City in January of last year, may share the same opinion as they are rumored to be eyeing his signing once more.
It appears that Los Blancos’ desire to recruit PSG superstar Kylian Mbappe at the time was a source of distraction.
Real Madrid would be enticed by the idea of signing Julian Alvarez, especially if he is available for a sum of £51.4 million, since it has been rumored that Manchester City could make a play for Evan Ferguson.
Additionally, it has been revealed that Alvarez may serve as the Spanish giants’ backup plan if they are unable to complete the signing of Mbappe in the summer of 2024 as well.
Alvarez leaving Manchester City is extremely unlikely.
To begin with, Julian Alvarez’s contract was extended in March of this year to include 2028, making it doubtful that Manchester City would be prepared to trade him to any team, let alone Real Madrid.
Further, if Carlo Ancelotti’s team is serious about acquiring the 23-year-old, a club record amount will be expected of them.
Even still, the Sky Blues have no justification for selling one of the game’s most talented strikers, who will only get better under Guardiola’s tutelage.
