Julian Alvarez insists he is happy at Man City amid links to Chelsea - but leaves his future open

Manchester City star Julian Alvarez has been linked with a move away from Pep Guardiola's side, however, he has insisted he is happy at the club.

WHAT HAPPENED?
Alvarez has performed well for Guardiola since he made the move to the Etihad Stadium in 2022 from River Plate. However, with the emergence of Erling Haaland in the side, he has failed to secure a spot on the starting XI and has been linked with a move away from the eight-time Premier League winners. However, he has suggested he is happy to stay with City past this summer.

WHAT ALVAREZ SAID
Speaking to ESPN, Alvarez said: "These are things that are said, but I am calm, I am comfortable and happy at City. We will see what happens."

THE BIGGER PICTURE
Alvarez has been heavily linked with Chelsea for a summer move with Enzo Maresca looking to rejuvenate the attack that faltered under Mauricio Pochettino last season. The Argentine forward's comments will have pleased the Chelsea ownership as he has kept his future open regardless of his apparent happiness under Guardiola.

WHAT NEXT FOR ALVAREZ?
The Argentine will remain focused on his nation's title defence at the Copa America and will likely only focus on his future after the end of the tournament.
