Manchester United were never interested in signing River Plate striker Julian Alvarez during the current transfer window.

The Argentine is regarded as one of the best upcoming strikers in world football, and he is expected to join Manchester City soon.

The Cityzens have agreed to trigger the €20m release clause on his contract, but the 21-year-old will stay with River Plate until July.

It is now reported that United were never in the race to sign the marksman despite the frequent speculation in the media lately.

It was suggested that the Red Devils had spoken with his representative, but M.E.N claims that there was no contact whatsoever.

Pep Guardiola's side were the only club with a serious interest in Alvarez, who has been compared to the legendary Sergio Aguero.

Alvarez had an excellent 2021 with River Plate, bagging 24 goals and 15 assists across all competitions. He won two trophies in the process.

He is expected to be integrated into the first-team plans at the Cityzens ahead of their pre-season campaign in the summer.
