WATCH: Man City signing Julian Alvarez hits 6 goals for River Plate

Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez struck a stunning double hat-trick for River Plate today.

Alvarez scored six goals in an astonishing performance for River Plate on Wednesday.

River Plate ran out 8-1 winners against Alianza Lima with Alvarez proving why he was one of the most sought after young strikers on the planet.

It was confirmed earlier this year that the Argentine would be joining the Premier League champions, but City deemed it better for his development to send him back to River Plate on-loan.

Alvarez is expected to join City for the new 2022/23 season.
