Manchester City’s Julian Alvarez, the 23-year-old forward and World Cup winner, has recently inked a one-year extension with the club. This deal will keep him at the Etihad Stadium until 2028. Alvarez has already scored 10 goals in 33 appearances in his first season with Manchester City, having moved from River Plate. He also netted four times for Argentina during their triumphant World Cup campaign in Qatar in December.
Initially, Alvarez’s contract was set to expire at the end of the 2026/27 season. However, following a promising start with the club, Manchester City decided to extend his contract by another year. Alvarez expressed his pride and gratitude to the club for their continued faith in him. He said that he has been pleased with his performance so far, but there is always room for improvement, and he believes Manchester City can provide him with everything he needs to reach his full potential.
Director of football Txiki Begiristain praised Alvarez’s positive attitude and development since joining Manchester City. He referred to the young striker as an inspiration to anyone looking to make their way in the game. Begiristain believes that Alvarez has shown exceptional movement and natural goal-scoring instincts during his time with Manchester City, and he hopes to develop his game further to make him one of the best strikers in the world.
