Atletico Madrid have plan in place to sign Manchester City star this summer

This week, it has been heavily reported that Atletico Madrid hold a strong interest in Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez, whose future at the Premier League champions is far from guaranteed. However, a permanent move to the Spanish capital is not likely to be one of the routes taken.

According to Marca, Atleti have ruled out signing Alvarez this summer on a permanent deal, as Man City’s asking price is believed to be in the region of €100m. A loan move is their only option, although it is one that they will heavily explore.

Atleti’s financial woes mean that a permanent operation is impossible, and although that would mean they are behind others in the race for Alvarez, they remain confident of getting their man. Club bosses believe that the influence of their Argentine stars, including Rodrigo De Paul, will play a significant role.

Atletico Madrid are banking on the fact that Alvarez will ask to leave Man City during the summer, because of his place as an irregular starter. It remains to be seen whether there is movement on this in the coming weeks.
