Manchester City has offered Julian Alvarez a new double-your-money deal a year after the Argentinian moved to the club as he continues to deliver terrific performances for them.
Alvarez has settled into life in City easily after joining the Premier League champions at the start of 2022 and he is one of the most important players at the club right now.
Erling Haaland gets most of the playing chances and also gets praise in the press, but Alvarez has also been a key contributor to City and he proved his class with Argentina at the World Cup last year.
A report in the Daily Mail reveals the attacker has now signed a new long-term deal, which doubles his salary to £100,000 a week and makes him one of the best-paid youngsters in England.
Alvarez has hardly started matches for the Citizens, but he has managed to score 10 goals in 33 appearances for them and Pep Guardiola insists he is an important part of their future.
His new deal keeps him at the Etihad until at least 2028 and City can now focus on strengthening other parts of their squad in the summer as they chase Arsenal to win this season’s Premier League title.
Alvarez was delighted with the extension and 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 am now focused on getting better and helping City win trophies.’
