Ralf Rangnick is determined to add to Manchester United’s attacking options in January, and they have already begun making a move through the nearest transfer window.
Manchester United have made their reported interest more convincing River Plate striker Julian Alvarez after contacting the Argentine club over the purchase of the 21-year-old.
Julian Alvarez has been collecting interest from many of Europe’s top clubs but Manchester United are hoping to advance the game through contact and communication before either side does the same.
Although Bayern Munich, Juventus, AC Milan, and Atletico Madrid have all been linked with a move for the youngster, it is unlikely that it will turn into a bidding war in terms of the 17 million release clause in his contract.
Since all interested parties are more than capable of paying that amount, it could be down to who could offer a lucrative contract for the player himself, which could put United in a higher position with higher Premier League salaries than any other league. on average.
Julian Alvarez understandably longs to represent Argentina at the 2022 World Cup in Qatar and may feel that going to Europe would be his best chance to impress manager Lionel Scaloni.
Another attacking body may be a requirement for the Red Devils, with Frenchman Anthony Martial voicing his desire to leave Old Trafford in search of first-team football as his chances are limited since the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer.
Julian Alvarez will not only compete with Ronaldo for the role of striker but also United academy graduates Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood, both of whom are highly regarded by United fans and have great potential.
Mason Greenwood, in particular, is a deadly finisher on both feet and that has made him one of the strongest league finishers in the league.
