Alvarez Commits Long-Term Future to Manchester City
Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez has signed a one-year contract extension to tie him to the club through 2028, the club announced last week.
The 23-year-old, who moved to Manchester last summer, has enjoyed an impressive few months that has seen him play a crucial role in Argentina’s World Cup victory in Qatar. Since joining from River Plate, the dynamic striker has scored 10 goals in 33 appearances across all competitions during his first season with the Cityzens.
A World Cup winner with Argentina last winter, Alvarez netted four times as part of a historic triumph for his native country. Alvarez said: “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.”

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “Julian has impressed everyone at Manchester City with his technical ability, dedication and attitude. “He is the ideal blueprint for a young footballer and an inspiration to anyone looking to make their way in the game. He has shown already here in England that he has outstanding movement and natural goalscoring instincts.”
“We saw at the World Cup what a special talent he is. To win that trophy at his age is amazing and we are all very proud of what he achieved. “His progress so far has been really good, but we are now fully focused on developing his game even further and turning him into one of the best strikers in world football.”
