They're so aggressive in the market. Manchester City have reportedly agreed to sign Argentina's next superstar Julián Álvarez from River Plate.
According to Fabrizio Romano's report, the English Premier League champions have 'beaten' the likes of Manchester United to sign Alvarez.
The 21-year-old has been signed on a five-year deal worth no less than €18.5m. Is he coming to the Etihad immediately? Nope. The Citizens have decided to loan out the attacker at River Plate until the end of the season.
