Barcelona targets Julian Alvarez to replace Robert Lewandowski?

Barcelona dreams of recruiting the 23-year-old Argentine forward Julian Alvarez. The Manchester City striker is predicted to be a long-term prospect at the Blaugrana. La Blaugrana currently still has Robert Lewandowski as the spearhead. A sharp striker whose age is no longer young, namely 35 years. For now, Lewandowski is still safe as he is doing his part of the job for Barca. His contract is available until 2026. The problem is perhaps one, sooner or later his abilities will be affected by age.

Barcelona is aware of this and is prepared for the worst possibility. Therefore, Alvarez is starting to be targeted from now on to replace Lewandowski. The plan itself will be difficult to implement shortly. Alvarez just signed a new contract at Man City in March 2023. The fabulous striker from Argentina will last quite a long time at the Etihad Stadium. His new contract will bind him until 2028.

With this new contract, Alvarez will not be cheap to buy for the La Liga giants. Barcelona's difficult financial situation further strengthens the suspicion that Alvarez will not be brought in now. However, the SPORT report reveals that there are loopholes that Barcelona can exploit in the new contract.

It turns out that Alvarez has a release clause of 50 million Euros. There is no detailed information yet on when this clause will be active. So, with this price, Barcelona is sure they can buy Alvarez if the time requires it. Moreover, even if they had to make amends now, Barcelona's finances are in shambles. The choice of Alvarez as a replacement for Lewandowski emerged after receiving the green light from Xavi Hernandez. The manager believes that Alvarez is indeed an attacker who fits his playing scheme.
