Chivas are keen on signing withLA Galaxy
in the summer transfer window, according to
The 18-year-old featured in 33 MLS games, being one of the top prospects in North America. The promising midfielder’s father, Crescencio Alvarez, used to feature for Chivas, which provides hope for the Liga MX club to acquire his signature.
Sources claim that an approach may happen soon, with Alvarez’s price tag being at least $12 million (£8.5m).
Since the midfielder’s contract is not expired yet, LA would ask for a big offer for any talks to be held, which can make Chivas step back from their pursuit.
In 2019, Zlatan Ibrahimovic commented about Alvarez:
"He's by far the biggest talent from everybody [in MLS]."
"Because he thinks football. He has that football in him, and it's natural. It didn't come by him training or something. [Anyone can] have the training, the physical [work] and all those things that you put together [to become a better player], but you cannot have that football in you. He has it.
"He goes on the field, and you see when he plays, he's all natural: the way he thinks, the way he moves the ball, the way he touches the ball. By far the best player in MLS. He just needs his game time, and he will show it also."
Alvarez’s national team future has been surrounding plenty of drama since he has not yet decided between the U.S and Mexico.
