Another Striker for Real Madrid?

Real Madrid is closely tracking River Plate striker Julian Alvarez and could make a move for the 21-year-old if he keeps up the form he has shown so far this season.

Alvarez has scored 15 goals and provided six assists for River in 16 games to this point, and curiously he had a brief spell in Los Blancos' academy as a child.

"He spent a month in Madrid. He made such a difference playing here that they came to see him from everywhere," Claudio Gorgerino, the mayor of Calchin, Alvarez's hometown, told Infobae.

"He would overpower his opponents. He'd go left or right and get into the box."
