Manchester City will not entertain offers of below £80million for Julian Alvarez this summer, and Chelsea should not pay that amount according to reporter Iomie Stanley.

CHELSEA are looking to add a new striker to the attack over the course of the summer transfer window and add a player that has the ability to score goals on a weekly basis, something that Alvarez has proven at City.

However – with Erling Haaland the number one player under Guardiola – Alvarez is seeing his game time become less and less unless the big man picks up an injury, and at this stage of his career, he wants to play more.

Pep Guardiola is extremely happy with the attacker and there is no desire to lose him, and City would like to keep him , Alvarez has not asked to leave, he just wants a bigger role at the club, though this has spiked Chelsea’s interest

But with the reports that Man City will sell Alvarez if over £80 million is spent, Stanley has told icfootballnews that Chelsea would be making a mistake by signing the striker for that king of money, he told icfootballnews: ‘Alvarez has done brilliantly with the game time that he gets at Man City, and is a goal-scorer, but when he has been given the chance to be the main man, it has not worked out.

‘Pep Guardiola is one of the best managers in the game and if he believed that Alvarez could lead that attack on a weekly basis – he would have not gone out and signed Erling Haaland, a player that the club had to change their style to suit.

‘Chelsea do need someone like Ivan Toney, they need a Viktor Gyokeres or a Dusan Vlahovic – Alvarez is a player that can play in a number of positions, but is not the kind of number nine that Enzo Maresca needs.

‘£80 million is alot of money – but there are better options out there for CHELSEA that the club could sign – Alvarez would not be the right option.’
