Etihad may have always been his next destination
Manchester City’s new transfer target Julian Alvarez has already revealed his admiration for the club.
City are believed to have voted for the 21-year-old, who has battered Argentina’s football this season.
The River Plate winger or striker could be released for £ 16.75 million, but according to Argentina, the current club are keen to keep him until the summer.
Pep Guardiola does not see Alvarez as a starter at the Etihad, and I think he is ready to send him on loan to a European side to gain experience.
Before he became interested in City, Manchester United were thought to be interested in a talented striker, but in the process, the Blues were able to beat the Reds in the race for his signature.
Alvarez has always preferred to move to the blue half of the city after his speech in an interview with Radio La Red in 2020.
Commenting on his dream, the goal scorer at the time said: “Most people have a dream to play in Europe because of the quality of these leagues and what it means to be in these clubs.
“But I’m calm. I’m talking to the agent and my family, of course, but I know I have to focus on what I’m doing. Later, time will come through what I’m doing.
“On the PlayStation, I play Barcelona or Manchester City.”
If you believe this information, it didn’t take long for Alvarez to take control of himself on the PlayStation in the blue square.
Osman Dembele has vowed to defend Barcelona’s future and not “blackmail” it.
Osman Dembele has been warned by Barcelona’s top officials after Premier League clubs came to a deadlock over a new deal.
Barcelona striker Osman Dembele has made a statement about his future after being cursed by others inside the club.
Sports director Mateu Alemani said this week that the Frenchman was no longer part of the club’s plans as he had not made any progress in extending his contract.
“We understand Dembele’s decision not to stay at the club and we have announced our decision (to exclude him from the trip to Bilbao),” said Alemani before leaving Barça in the Copa del Rey.
Dembele’s contract expires this summer, at which time he could leave without anything, but the former Borussia Dortmund have reiterated that they will stay true to their goals in the coming months.

“For the last four years, I’ve made the choice to never react or try to justify myself. Was it a mistake? Of course. It’s all over from today, “Dembel’s statement was translated by Get French Football News.
[…] I’m 24 years old and like any man, I have flaws and shortcomings. I suffered from severe periods, injuries, and Kovid-19. When the coach called me without training, I answered the call without hurting my eyelids. […] I understand how lucky I am to have the best job in the world. “
Dembele missed several games during his time at the Camp Nou and has not played since the start of the current campaign due to a knee problem, but has played 11 times this season since returning to the field in November.
Several Premier League clubs are interested in the 24-year-old, including Newcastle United and long-time Manchester United fan.
However, he emphasized that even if he does not stay at the Camp Nou for the summer, he will remain committed as long as he remains a Barcelona player.
“I will not allow anyone to say that they are not committed to the sports project,” he said. […] “he continued.
“I still have a contract, but I’m involved in every way and I’m dedicated to my club and my coach. I’ve been dedicated to my team and all my fans – not when it’s over.
“I’m not a cheater, I’m not a blackmailer.”
After Alemani Dembele said he should leave the club “as soon as possible”, the players’ union AFE issued a statement warning the La Liga side of their behavior.
“AFE considers it its duty to provide services on behalf of the club in accordance with the instructions given to him by concluding an employment contract with a professional footballer,” the statement said.
“On the other hand, the club is obliged to pay the agreed salary and allow the athlete to provide services on the same terms as the rest of the team without any discrimination or pressure to waive the right to work.
“The failure to reach an agreement on the extension of the employment contract does not mean that there is a labor dispute, so AFE believes that this will not have any consequences for the provision of services,” the union added.
