The chances appear slim of a Manchester City striker leaving this summer

One of the surprise stories of the summer was the reports of clubs being interested in Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez. It should come as no surprise that a player of the quality of Alvarez would attract suitors in the transfer window. But a recent report gives the impression that the chances are slim of Alvarez leaving City this summer.

Farrell Keeling has reported for that Manchester City are set to reject any offers for Alvarez this summer. Keeling reports that PSG and Barcelona hold interest in signing Alvarez this summer. It is also reported by Keeling that a fee of over €100 million would be demanded by City to sell Alvarez. Furthermore, Keeling reports that City have told Alvarez’s agents that they have no intention of selling the striker this summer. Lastly, Keeling reports that Alvarez won’t contemplate leaving Manchester City unless he receives a good offer.

It would appear that the future of Julian Alvarez remains with Manchester City.

Based on Keeling’s report the chances appear slim of Alvarez leaving City this summer. The world champions have no intention of selling the Argentinian international. While PSG could afford a big money move for the striker City is in a position where they don’t need to sell Alvarez. This gives the champions control of the situation that surrounds the World Cup winner.

That stance also gives City peace of mind going forward. Julian Alvarez is a key player for Pep Guardiola. He is City’s second striker behind Erling Haaland. Alvarez is also a key member of Guardiola’s squad with his versatility. Last season he played as a striker, a number 10 and on a wing when required. This makes him an invaluable weapon for the world champions. There is also the fact that Alvarez never gives less than 100% when he is on the pitch. The overall package that Alvarez provides is almost irreplaceable to Manchester City.

The report from Farrell Keeling gives the impression that Julian Alvarez will be a part of Manchester City’s squad for next season. That is good news for the world champions. Though the situation could change if a mammoth offer to Alvarez came from PSG it appears that the Argentinian striker will have a key role to play for Manchester City next season.
