Transfer News: Rafael Varas, the trainer and the discoverer of Julian Alvarez has expressed that he would be happy if the River Plate youngster joins Man United.
The 21-year-old is heavily linked with a move away from Los Millonarios in this January transfer window. Many clubs from Europe have reportedly shown interest in signing the Argentine forward and the Red Devils are also in the race to sign the talented youngster.
Speaking with Radio República, quoted by TyC Sports, Varas said that European clubs are actively pursuing Álvarez and could pay the transfer fee and sign him. However, the player is hoping to stay at the capital of Argentina in order to make a spot in the Albiceleste squad for the upcoming World Cup 2022.
The youngster’s trainer further claims that the 21-year-old will adjust to any club and will flourish under any circumstances. But, Varas would like the forward to play for Real Madrid or Manchester United. He said:
“It’s difficult because those in Europe want it, someone will put the money and take him away. For me, he wants to stay at River for a little more to go to the World Cup. Julian will adapt and explode in any club there. I would like him to go to Real Madrid or Manchester United.”
The report also stated that the Red Devils are showing concrete interest in the Argentine forward and have already made contact with the 21-year-old’s representative in order to schedule a meeting to understand the youngster’s demands.
Transfer News: Will Julian Alvarez be a good addition to Man United?
Transfer News: Signing Julian Alvarez would be a very good addition for Man United. The 21-year-old has already showcased his talent in the Argentine league and the Old Trafford faithful will be hoping that the youngster could replicate the same performance in the Premier League if the Red Devils hierarchy can manage to persuade him to join.
With Anthony Martial looking to move away from the record Premier League champions and Edinson Cavani will also leave the club at the end of this season, signing a new forward has become an absolute necessity for Manchester United.
So, the 21-year-old could be a perfect addition to the Red Devils’ attacking department. The youngster can be used in different positions as he can play in the centre forward position as well as the wings. Therefore, Álvarez’s versatility could be a great asset for the United boss.
