Manchester United have joined the race for Velez Sarsfield star Ricky Alvarez.
Alvarez has been likened to Real Madrid star Kaka and Velez have informed both Arsenal and Manchester United that it will take £10 million for them sale.
Ricardo Gabriel Álvarez, nicknamed "Ricky Álvarez", (born April 12, 1988) is an Argentine footballer who plays for Vélez Sársfield in the Argentine Primera División. He is a left-footed attacking midfielder.
Álvarez played his first professional game with Vélez Sársfield in 2008. Following his debut, he suffered a knee cruciate ligament injury that stalled his progression on the first team. He then was part of the 2009 Clausura winning squad, playing only 18 minutes in the 1–0 victory over Gimnasia y Esgrima de Jujuy.
