Alvarez’s City story so far in pictures

Julian Alvarez has signed a new one-year deal at Manchester City, keeping him at the Club until 2028.

The electric attacker moved to the Etihad Stadium in January 2022 from River Plate, but remained with the Argentine giants on loan until the end of the 2021/22 campaign, before linking up with his teammates in sky blue in pre-season.  

Since then, he’s already made a sizeable impact for Pep Guardiola’s side – scoring 10 goals in all competitions across 34 appearances this term.  


What’s more, La Arana also played a starring role for Argentina at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar as his four goals throughout the tournament helped the South Americans win the showpiece trophy for the first time since 1986.  

This included a sensational brace in Lionel Scaloni’s side’s 3-0 semi-final victory over Croatia at the Lusail Iconic Stadium before the turn of the year. 

With pace to burn and a calmness in front of goal, Alvarez has hit the ground running in England. 

And after extending his stay at City, there are plenty more incredible moments to come for him in Manchester.  

With this in mind, we’ve collated the best images from his time at the Club so far below…
