United in talks with Alvarez agent
If reports are to be believed, Manchester United is set to meet the agent of Look River Plate star Julian Alvarez.
United have joined the race for a transfer for Alvarez, who has scored 18 goals and seven assists in 21 appearances so far this season.
According to TYC Sports, the Red Devils have approached the striker’s agent Fernando Hidalgo with ‘clear intent’ to arrange a meeting after December 31.
The 21-year-old sensation has a contract with the Argentina giants till December 31, 2022.
But River Plate are unwilling to let Argentina go international in January and their release clause includes a €20million (£17m) fee.
However, the Manchester giants don’t think it’s a “crazy amount” and they “wouldn’t be interested in buying the forward right now” but in the summer.
