Ralf Rangnick, who was then temporary manager and was preparing for his role as board consultant and Erik ten The Hague, was furious with Manchester United for refusing to buy a single player in January – handed over.

– They had the opportunity to do so, but they did not want to bring the attacker. I mean Julian Alvarez. It was one of the players that was offered to Manchester United and other clubs – the journalist betrayed.

– He had a break clause in his contract and was a player that Rangnick had on his list while still in Lokomotiv Moscow. Ultimately, Manchester United did not take any interest in the topic. Now Manchester City has a really good striker for the present and the future – he said.

Manchester City paid 17 million euros for the 22-year-old. The player was on loan to River Plate for the first six months, and in the summer he joined a new team.

Alvarez has made eight appearances for “The Citizens”. During this time, he scored three goals.
