Finding a Starting Point

Alvarez’s football development began at Atletico Calchin in Argentina. However, scouts from numerous clubs noticed him, and he ended up taking trials for huge teams such as Boca Juniors and Real Madrid.

He particularly impressed in Madrid, taking part in a youth tournament where he scored twice in five games, but the move couldn’t go through due to age restrictions on foreign players.

River Plate Come Calling

In the end, Argentinian giants River Plate gave Alvarez his first shot at elite professional football. He joined them in 2016 and quickly started making an impact on the youth teams.

In 2018 Alvarez made his professional debut when he came on as a substitute in a 1-0 victory against Aldosivi in the Primera Division. A year later, he got his first goal when he found the back of the net in a 3-0 win over Independiente. Things only started speeding up from there is a couple of months later, he scored the most important goal of his career yet, making his mark in the 2019 Copa Argentina final, where River Plate beat Central Cordoba 3-0.

Moving on to Bigger Things

Within a couple of years, Alvarez had become River Plate’s star player, and, despite his career still being in its early stages, it had become clear that he had outgrown Argentinian domestic football. His six goals in an 8-1 victory over Allianza Lima in the 2022 Copa Libertadores proved that he was ready to take the step up to European football. And now, he dreams of playing the 2022 Qatar World Cup Final! 

Manchester City Come Calling

In the summer of 2022, Alvarez moved to Manchester City, although he had technically been signed before being loaned back to River Plate. The 5 ½ year contract that Manchester City gave him showed they had belief in his talents.

Arriving at such a talented team at such a young age, minutes were always going to be hard to come by initially for the Argentinian forward. However, Alvarez has already shown that he is more than ready to take his chances when they arrive.

His first outing came when he replaced fellow summer signing Erling Haaland as a substitute in August. Later that month, Alvarez got his first goals in the Premier League as he netted a brace in a 6-0 victory against Nottingham Forest. His impact is likely to grow further as he settles in Manchester.

Stepping up to the Argentinian Plate

Julian Alvarez’s international career is only slightly older than his Manchester City one, with his debut coming in a World Cup qualifier against Chile in 2021.

He currently has 10 international appearances to his name and one goal. With a golden generation of Argentinian forwards nearing its end (stars such as Lionel Messi, Angel di Maria, and Sergio Aguero), fans are hoping that Alvarez can fill in the huge boots that his predecessors will soon hang up.
