Julián Álvarez is the boy of the moment at River Plate and Núñez’s club wants to shield him with the renewal of his contract.
The brilliant present of the young forward, added to the fact that he is already a regular summoned in the Argentine National Team, make him one of those targeted by European clubs for the next pass market.
Gustavo Yarroch’s information in ESPN Soccer 90 is that the contract of the 21-year-old Cordovan striker ends in December 2022 and has an exit clause of 25 million euros. The idea of the millionaire leadership is to sign a new bond until December 2023 and raise the number of termination to 35 million, something that will have to be seen if the player and his representative accept.
Julián Álvarez was promoted by Marcelo Gallardo to the professional team and made his official debut on October 27, 2018 against Aldosivi at the Monumental. Since then, he has participated in 24 games and scored 26 goals, of which 9 were in the last 6 matches for the League Tournament.
