With the arrival of Xavi as coach, rumors are rife that a number of players will join Barcelona in the January transfer window. There have been strong reports that Barcelona will acquire Manchester City star Ferran Torres, who has been linked with a move away from the club.
Based on Oriole Dominic’s reports on Sport 3 Sport Argentine striker Julian Alvarez has been linked with a move to Barcelona in January. The report also states that Barcelona have been evaluating the performance of the 21 – year – old Riverplate player for months.
Julian Alvarez, who has played in eighteen games in the Argentine league for Riverplate this season, has already scored seventeen goals and five assists. He also played five matches for Argentina in the Copa America and the World Cup qualifiers, and is considered the future of the national team.
Meanwhile, Real Madrid’s arrival for Julian Alvarez is a big threat to Barcelona. Alvarez, who spent a month at Real Madrid during his youth, is also more likely to pick Real Madrid.
The player is valued at around മ 20 million. Barcelona’s financial crisis may also hamper the player’s move. Barcelona, meanwhile, could drop moves for Alvarez if they get Ferran Torres.
