Manchester City 'facing a fight' to keep hold of Julian Alvarez this summer
| Last updated
Manchester City are facing a fight to keep hold of Julian Alvarez, according to a report.
He's netted 17 times this season in 46 games, boasting an impressive goals-to-minutes ratio for the Premier League champions, having earned just 22 starts in all competitions.
But he finds himself playing second fiddle to Erling Haaland and with the division's top scorer breaking the record for the most goals scored in a Premier League season, it's unlikely he'll be able to replace him any time soon.
Alvarez can play deeper but with Haaland's form it's unlikely he will ever be a permanent fixture in his preferred position, unless the Norwegian is injured.
Bayern Munich are reportedly interested in signing Alvarez in the summer, and may be willing to test City's resolve for the forward.
Alvarez would cost a pretty penny, however, having signed a deal to keep him at the Etihad until 2028.
City themselves are likely to strengthen despite their potential treble victory, with some players set to leave in the summer.
