Born in 2000, Argentinian prospect Alvarez has been playing for Man City since this season. He made his professional debut at the prestigious Argentine club River Plate and performed outstandingly in the 2021 season. He scored 18 goals and 7 assists in 21 Argentine League appearances. Man City showed interest in this, and completed his scout.
Last season, right after his contract was signed, he continued to play for River Plate in the second half. And since this season, he has been active in Man City. So far, Alvarez has appeared in 18 English Premier League (EPL) matches. However, he only started five times. He mainly plays as a back-up to Erling Haaland, occasionally as a two-top.
Nonetheless, he is in good shape. Despite his limited appearances, he scored 4 goals in the league. He is also recording 2 goals and 2 assists in 6 matches in the European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League (UCL). He is running the scorer whenever he gets playing time, such as the English Football League Cup (EFL) and the English FA Cup.안전놀이터

As a result, Manchester City are planning a new contract. What is impressive is that he is already a long-term contract player. Álvarez has a contract with Manchester City until June 2027. He signed a contract for 5 years and 6 months at the time of signing, and even if this season ends, he is considering extending his contract even though there are 4 years left in his contract.
