Manchester City boast one of the world’s finest squads and are rightfully the defending European champions.

Pep Guardiola’s side have some of the best talents in the world across the field, but their option for the centre-forward position are second to none.

Real Madrid have long been linked with a move to the Blues’ star Erling Haaland for the upcoming summer transfer window.

More recently, links between Real Madrid and Julian Alvarez, Manchester City’s World Cup-winning striker, began doing the rounds. Meanwhile, their arch-rivals Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in the 23-year-old striker.

Alvarez addressed his future

As revealed by Albiceleste Talk, the Argentine superstar spoke about his future in a recent interview and gave his two cents on a possible move to Real Madrid.

“Real Madrid or Barcelona? The truth is I’m very happy at Manchester City. I’ve been at the club for a little more than a year. I feel very happy with everything we’ve achieved.”

“From the first moment, they’ve helped me a lot. I’ve grown a lot as a player, as a person, so I’m happy at the club,” he added.

It remains to be seen how sustainable it is for Manchester City to keep both Haaland and Alvarez in the same team, for both deserve to be starters at the elite level.

A complicated transfer

It is not difficult to see why Los Blancos are interested in the 23-year-old World Cup winner’s profile, for his statistics this season have been incredible.

In 17 games for Manchester City, he has scored four goals and provided six assists with comprehensive all-round displays.

Yet, it is important for the Merengues to note that Alvarez has no release clause attached to his contract in England.

Considering that his deal runs until 2028, the Premier League giants hold the advantage in any forthcoming negotiations.

Real Madrid will be on their way to England this Thursday as they gear up to take on Borussia Dortmund in the UEFA Champions League final on Saturday.

The players and the staff will be on a flight to London tomorrow to prepare for the clash at Wembley.

However, according to a report from journalist Arancha Rodriguez, Real Madrid goalkeeper Andriy Lunin might not travel with the rest of the team tomorrow.

The 25-year-old Ukrainian goalkeeper has not trained for three days in a row after coming down with the flu.

Lunin has overcome the flu, but he still has the virus and there is still a chance he could be contagious.

As such, Real Madrid, aware of the importance of Saturday’s match against Borussia Dortmund, are considering leaving the Ukrainian behind to avoid any possible contagion ahead of the Champions League final.

The goalkeeper will likely not travel with the rest of the expedition to London on Thursday and will fly alone on Saturday to avoid the risk of infection.

On Thursday, Lunin will undergo another check-up and, depending on the viral load, he could even travel on Friday. But it seems impossible for him to travel with his teammates.

It has already been suggested that Lunin would be making way for Thibaut Courtois in the starting lineup against Borussia Dortmund on Saturday. The likelihood of that has increased following the events of this week.
