Manchester City has extended a new contract offer to Julian Alvarez, but he is uncertain if he will receive the playing time he desires at the Etihad Stadium
Despite Alvarez’s impressive performances for Argentina at the FIFA World Cup and with City when given the opportunity to play at the club level, Erling Haaland has been forced to take second place to Alvarez for the bulk of the 2022–23 season.
Alvarez has only started six games in the Premier League since joining City from River Plate in the summer, but he has still scored five goals in 707 minutes of league play.
Despite his limited playing time, the 23-year-old has impressed City enough that, as 90 Minutes knows, they have extended their offer to him for an additional five years with a significantly better financial package. Sources have since told 90min that Alvarez is not happy with his present playing time and does not see himself gaining more time anytime soon.
Due to this, Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid, and Barcelona have all expressed interest in the player’s situation. However, 90min is aware that Manchester City has no plans to let one of their prized young assets depart the team. However, they do want him to be content, which is what led them to give him a new contract even though his current one doesn’t expire until 2027.
Alvarez will be aiming to make his second FA Cup start of the year on Wednesday night when City takes on Bristol City of the Championship.
