Manchester City announced the extension of Julian Alvarez’s contract until 2028 on Thursday due to his impressive debut season as a World Cup-winning Argentinean player.
Alvarez currently plays second fiddle to Erling Haaland but has managed to score 10 goals in 33 appearances in his first season in England. He had a significant impact in helping Argentina win their third World Cup in Qatar, scoring four goals in the tournament, including two in the semifinal victory over Croatia.
Alvarez’s new deal reportedly includes a significant wage increase on top of the 12-month extension to the contract he signed just over a year ago.
Expressing his joy, Alvarez said in a statement released by the club, “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.”
