Julian Alvarez’s Potential Transfer to Atletico Madrid Faces Significant £140 Million Obstacle from Manchester City

Julian Alvarez to Atletico Madrid transfer faces significant £140m Man City challenge


In the latest transfer news, Atletico Madrid is reportedly interested in signing Julian Alvarez from Manchester City.


Manchester City has a strong incentive to retain Julian Alvarez despite interest from Atletico Madrid.


The World Cup winner has had a limited role in the latter part of the season due to the return of Erling Haaland and Kevin De Bruyne from injury, as well as Phil Foden’s exceptional form. Although Alvarez averaged 64.4 minutes per game across all competitions this season, he managed to score 19 goals and provide 13 assists, with 20 of these contributions coming in Premier League matches.


Despite being regularly used as Pep Guardiola’s secret weapon, Alvarez took on a more significant role during several key absences. He scored four goals and provided one assist in five victories during Haaland’s injury absence, with all contributions proving crucial.


With four years remaining on his contract, City’s reluctance to sell Alvarez is bolstered by additional incentives to keep him. Recently, the CIES Football Observatory released a list of the top 100 most valuable players in the world.


Real Madrid’s Jude Bellingham tops the list with a valuation of €280.4 million (£238.6m), while Alvarez’s teammate Erling Haaland is second at €255.3 million (£217.2m). Vinicius Jr. and Rodrygo follow in third and fourth, with Phil Foden and Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka completing the top six. Alvarez, somewhat surprisingly, ranks seventh with a value of €168.4 million (£143.2m).


Regardless of Atletico’s offer, this valuation underscores Alvarez’s immense talent and near-untouchable status, especially considering the uncertain long-term future of Haaland.
