River makes its second most expensive sale in history, Julián Álvarez will be a new player for Manchester City in England. The transfer of the Cordovan to the group of “Citizens” will be made in a total of 27.5 million dollars, this sale is only behind Javier Saviola’s pass to Barcelona of Spain in exchange for 28 million in US currency.
At the end of the season in Argentine soccer it was a matter of time to wait for the offers for the “Spider” to begin to fall, he was the top scorer in the Professional League with 18 goals scored and allowed River to become champion. In addition, in the season he played 42 games as a starter and participated in 36 goals between those scored and assists.
Once the transfer market started, there was talk of Fiorentina, Napoli, Atalanta from Italy as their possible destinations, Manchester United from England got into the bidding and it seemed that they would take it. Álvarez’s novel came to nothing since in Europe they are not going through the best economic moment either and they gave up hiring a player with incredible numbers, but in South America, it does not guarantee success in the short term and the termination clause is 20 million dollars .
Yesterday Julián began to sound very loud as a possible reinforcement of Manchester City, which through the City Group, usually buys players who shine in different places such as Darío Sarmiento in Estudiantes, the Brazilian Kayky in Fluminense and gives them on loans to its teams such as Torque City from Uruguay, New York City from the MLS or Girona from Spain.
The idea of the Cordovan is not to lose continuity in the face of the 2022 Qatar World Cup, therefore, the River fan was excited about his continuity, but the offer was irrefutable. The transaction will be made for a total of 27.5 million dollars, of which Núñez’s team will have around 21 million left, very high numbers for our football and thus becomes the second most expensive sale in history.
But not everything ends in sadness for the sale and happiness for the money, since the fans will be able to continue enjoying him and his goals with the Millo shirt. Álvarez will stay at least until June 2022 to play the Copa Libertadores and to have continuity for the World Cup. It could be extended if those of Núñez advance in the Libertadores.

River pass market:
El Millonario is still looking for certain players a few days before the end of the transfer period, with the addition of Emanuel Mammana, González Pirez, Tomás Pochettino and Juan Fernando Quintero is still looking for other players. To these four we must add Esequiel Barco, former player of Independiente champion of the South American in the Maracana. Everything is already verbally agreed and will be under Gallardo’s orders, he arrives on loan with a purchase option.
Esequiel Barco will be a new River playerFabricio Bustos, the Independiente winger will also become a River player, Gian Senatori, a journalist who covers El Millo, assured that there is an agreement with the player who was the only obstacle. El Rojo never prevailed since in June he would go free.
As for the other side, the left, everything indicates that Fabrizio Angileri will renew and continue in the institution.
The novel of the summer was Facundo Farías, player of Colón, requested by River and Boca. A few weeks ago he stopped appearing in the media to calm the waters, but Gallardo wants a really competitive team and insists on the Sabalero jewel. Not a minor fact, the Santa Fe team asks for 10 million dollars for its record.
