Manchester City gave Julián Álvarez the best news weeks after winning everything at the English club. The Argentine surprised everyone by finishing the season taking almost all the possible titles. Now, after standing out in a great way, the current Premier League champions made a historic decision that surprised all the fans.

 

The Spanish coach has always spoken highly of the River Plate attacker, but then that was not reflected in the minutes on the field. Now, that would change and, according to several reports, the Catalan would have promised Julian that he would play more in the 2023/24 season. After all, the player from Calchín was the team's second top scorer and his goal production could increase with more playing time.

These rumors do not sit well with Erling Haaland who, although he finished as City's top scorer in all competitions, was unable to score in either the Champions League semifinals or final, something Alvarez was able to do in just a handful of minutes, more precisely when he came on in the aggregate of the rematch against Madrid in the UEFA Champions League semifinals.

 

Can Haaland and Alvarez play together?

The reality is that the Norwegian striker and the Argentinian have already met on the pitch. However, Pep Guardiola's preferred system has always been to play with a single center-forward. Therefore, the battle for the position will continue and it seems that Julian will now have an even more important role in the Citizen team, something that the winner of the Golden Shoe 2023 does not like at all.
