Man City reject loan transfer offers from FIVE clubs for wonderkid Julian Alvarez with striker set for first-team squad | The Sun
MANCHESTER CITY have reportedly rejected loan offers from FIVE different clubs for wonderkid Julian Alvarez.
City snagged Alvarez for £17million from River Plate in February before loaning him back to the club until this summer.
Alvarez flourished in South America last season, and has courted attention from across Europe.
But City have no interest in letting the 22-year-old leave on loan again despite being approached by five European clubs.
That's according to Fabrizio Romano who claims the aforementioned group includes Premier League sides.
It's not the first time City have knocked back interest in Alvarez.

City chief executive Ferran Soriano revealed the club had rejected offers from several clubs already in May.
That's because the Etihad giants plan to build a devastating attack led by Alvarez and Erling Haaland next season.
The club plan to offload Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling to allow Alvarez to thrive with Haaland, Romano added.
Jesus has been heavily linked with Arsenal, while Sterling is being sized up by Chelsea.

Both players are seeking more first-team football and Pep is prepared to grant them their wishes.
Alvarez served a reminder of his talents on Sunday when he scored two and provided as many assists for River Plate during their 5-1 demolition of Union Sante Fe.
And City fans joked that they didn't need Haaland in May when Alvarez bagged a double hat-trick in River's 8-1 Copa Libertadores group stage win against Alianza Lima.
