Buenos Aires (AP) —Striker Julian Alvarez has made a dramatic departure from Argentina’s River Plate before joining England Premier League champion Manchester City.
When River Plate beat Peruvian team Alianza Lima 8-1 on Wednesday night in the last Group F game at Copa Libertadores this year, he was the first River Plate to score six goals in an official match. I became a player.
Argentina’s goals were 15 minutes, 18 minutes, 41 minutes, 54 minutes, 57 minutes and 83 minutes. The final goal came after he dribbled two opponents and finished with a cross shot.
River Plate has advanced to the knockout stage, but knows that there is no 22-year-old Alvarez in all South American tournaments.
Alvarez signed a five-and-a-half-year contract with Citi in January. He will join City after a 16-round Copa Libertadores match between June 28th and July 7th. The river plate topped the group prior to the draw on Friday.
River Plate coach Marcelo Gallardo said it would not be easy to replace Alvarez by calling it a “rough diamond.”
