In recent years, FC Barcelona have brought in several players from Manchester City.

Back in 2021, the Blaugrana signed Eric Garcia and Sergio Aguero while they shelled out the big bucks on Ferran Torres in January 2022.

Last summer saw the Catalans rope in Joao Cancelo on loan from the Cityzens, with the club being keen on furthering his stay next season as well.

Meanwhile, Barcelona’s long-standing interest in Bernardo Silva is no secret, although he is no longer a priority target following Hansi Flick’s arrival.

Another Manchester City that Barça have been fascinated by is Julian Alvarez. The Argentine striker is a player that the Catalans admire and have previously looked into the possibility of signing him.

The former River Plate prodigy has had to play second fiddle to Erling Haaland during his time at the Etihad Stadium and as such he might be considering a departure in the summer.

Atletico Madrid, for one, have been showing an interest in the 24-year-old but he is unlikely to join Los Rojiblancos.

Barcelona could capitalise

Although there is no mention of Barcelona looking to sign him currently, Alvarez’s willingness to leave could open the doors for the Catalans to revisit their interest in the World Cup winner.

With Vitor Roque’s continuity uncertain, Barça could need another striker and have been looking at potential options.

Given that they have admired Alvarez for some time now, he could also be added to the list of possible options to reinforce the No. 9 slot.

The 24-year-old has proven himself capable of performing at the highest level and could prove to be an enticing market opportunity for Barcelona.
