Man City news: Erling Haaland ‘agreement’ could be bad news for four Pep Guardiola players | Football | Sport


Julian Alvarez

City fans have found it tricky not to make comparisons to Sergio Aguero since the £14m January signing of young Argentine striker Julian Alvarez. The 22-year-old was loaned back to River Plate and has continued scoring at an impressive rate, notching seven senior caps for the national team to boot. 

Alvarez is expected to join up with the Sky Blues at the end of the season, but his lethal finishing is highly unlikely to be enough to edge ahead of Haaland in the pecking order – particularly given the Norwegian’s reported £500,000-a-week wages. The likes of Kelechi Iheanacho and Gabriel Jesus have proven that it is possible to forge a career at City while posing as a second-string striker, but Alvarez may not have the free reign that he hoped for.
