The Premier League champions have already made what will surely be the biggest signing of the summer in Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Alvarez was actually signed from River Plate in January but loaned straight back to the Argentinian club, but he will now arrive in Manchester this summer and form part of a fearsome-looking new attack with Haaland.
Al Mubarak says there will be more new signings to come, though, with City desperate to win the Champions League for the first time next season and clearly leaving no stone unturned to achieve their goal.
‘I can confirm that there will be more players coming in,’ the chairman told the club’s official website.
‘We are looking to strengthen the team in the areas that we need strengthening, and every season some players leave and we have to continually refresh the team.

‘I think we’ve made two very important additions already but I anticipate we will be doing a couple more.’
While there may be more new faces coming in, Al Mubarak is delighted with the big name they have snapped up already in Haaland, believing he has signed the best possible option as they looked for a centre-forward.

‘We have, in Haaland, arguably the best number nine in the world at the right age,’ he said.
‘When you look at the next 10-15 years we have invested, in Haaland, in that striker for the future.
‘He is a very, very unique, incredibly talented striker that I think the whole world has been looking at. I would say every big team in the world wanted Haaland to join and we are absolutely delighted Haaland chose to join Manchester City.
‘For us, it’s a super decision. We are getting, truly, a phenomenal player. He will fit very nicely with the group.’
