The future of Edson Álvarez points to be away from Eredivisie, where he’s played since 2019, when AFC Ajax acquired him out of Club América for a $16.3 million transfer fee. In the three seasons he’s played in Amsterdam, Álvarez has become an essential player for Erik ten Hag.

But now that Erik ten Hag will leave Ajax to join Premier League side Manchester United as their new coach for the 2022-23 season, he won’t be the only Ajax asset that becomes a Read Devil, as he intends to take Edson Álvarez with him.

The 24-year-old defensive midfielder has been one of the most important players for the Dutch coach, which is why he wants to start his new project around a player that he already knows, especially given his young age and the potential he can achieve.

With his position and the remainder of his contract with Ajax, Manchester United would only have to pay around $22 million to acquire his economic rights, an affordable sum for one of the teams that has spent the most during the past decade.

Cristiano Ronaldo approves his arrival

One of the things that Cristiano Ronaldo has criticized the most since his return to Manchester United is the lack of support players that the Red Devils have, something that has costed them the elimination from Champions League this season.

Given this situation, Ronaldo has threatened to leave at the end of the season if they don’t acquire new players to strengthen the squad and give them a real possibility to compete for both the Champions League and Premier League.

That’s why the addition of Edson Álvarez would be appreciated and approved by Cristiano Ronaldo, who knows that Álvarez will change the face of the defense, as he’s one of the most solid defensive midfielders in Europe.

Will CR7 stay in Manchester United for next season?

With eight games left in the season, Manchester United are out of Champions League for next season and if the season ended today, they’d be playing the UEFA Conference League in the 2022-23 season, something that will make Cristiano Ronaldo leave before his contract expires.
