Julian Alvarez extends contract with Manchester City until 2028.
Julian Alvarez signs new Man City contract until 2028.
Julian Alvarez has officially signed a new contract to extend his stay with Manchester City which will keep him at the Etihad until 2028.
Although Erling Haaland has taken the lead this season, the World Cup winner from Argentina has excelled when given the chance. He joined the Premier League winners from River Plate last July and has since scored 10 goals in 33 appearances.
Alvarez scored four goals for Argentina in Qatar as well, and he expresses excitement about continuing to develop under Pep Guardiola.
He told City’s website: “This is a very proud moment for me and my family. For a club like City to put their faith in me like this is amazing.
“I have been really pleased with my first season here, but I have plenty more I can do. I know I can be better, and City offer me everything I need to fulfil my potential.

“I want to thank the manager, the coaches and everyone at City who works behind the scenes for everything they have done for me since I joined in the summer. I could not have asked for more. This is a club that looks after its players, and I have felt so supported throughout my time here.
“I am now focused on getting better and helping City win trophies.”
Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain were all interested in Alvarez, according to reports, but City has moved to extend the terms of his previous contract, which was set to expire in 2027.
The 23-year-old has started six Premier League games as well as four in the Champions League. Late in February, he scored his most recent goal in a 4-1 drubbing of Bournemouth.
