Man City's Julian Alvarez is keen to adapt to the Premier League and help Guardiola's Cityzens.
Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez has revealed that he spoke to Sergio Aguero before deciding to secure a move from River Plate to the Etihad.
The 22-year-old put pen to paper on a five-and-a-half-year contract in January but remained at River Plate on loan until the end of the 2021-22 season.
When presented to the Man City fans for the first time, Alvarez expressed his desire to help Pep Guardiola’s Cityzens maintain their status as Premier League champions.
"We knew a long time ago I was coming," the Argentine said. "Thankfully I’m here now and I’m looking forward to starting and helping my team and the club.
"Obviously there’s a lot of players in the attack. There are loads of players who can help and contribute and I’m looking forward to helping out.
"I just arrived yesterday. This is a great city, it’s really exciting and I can’t wait to start playing.
"Basically I will bring goals, assists, and helping the team in the attacking line. I don’t really have an amount of goals in mind, but first I want to adapt and help the team and I want the team to succeed.
"Obviously there’s a long history of Argentine players in the club. I spoke to Kun Aguero, Nicolas Otamendi and Carlos Tevez. I want to continue my own story like other Argentinians have done and bring success to the club."
