Argentine World Cup hero tipped for future Real Madrid move by his former coach

It is close to unbelievable that the starting striker in the FIFA World Cup Champions team is on the bench at the club level. Yet, such is the quality of Manchester City that even Julian Alvarez finds himself benched for Erling Haaland.

However, it will be difficult for the Premier League champions to hold onto the Argentine striker for long given the heavy demand for his services. Further, the player will want more minutes given his tender age and could push for a move should the right approach arrive.

Alvarez’s first coach, Rafael Varas, undoubtedly knows the player well having trained him from a young age. The coach spoke to the media last week and revealed where the striker’s passion lay as revealed by MARCA.

“I believe at any moment, he [Álvarez] can wear the Real Madrid shirt.”

It must be noted that Alvarez had a trial with Real Madrid back in 2016 when he was still at CA Atalya.

The youngster had made an impression on the onlookers at the time, but the Merengues could not close the deal due to a rule that prohibited the club from signing foreign players under the age of 13. Alvarez then ended up joining River Plate instead.

Varas’ words will have the management of Los Blancos on their toes, for strengthening the centre-forward position is seen as an absolute priority within the club for the coming windows, despite the signing of Endrick for 2024.

Alvarez would be an ideal signing given his young age, sky-high potential and calm personality.

The 22-year-old stepped up when it mattered most for the Albiceleste and made the World Cup his own. He scored four goals in seven appearances in Qatar including two goals in the semifinal against Croatia. Further, his work rate off the ball was phenomenal, adding value to his profile.

It remains to be seen if Real Madrid take the coach’s words and try signing the young star. The operation would not come cheap, however, as Alvarez’s stocks saw a steep bullish period last month and are at an all-time high.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
