Later, when he has more experience, Julián will be more important than Lautaro “, expressed in dialogue with Radio Miter.

Then, he added: “I see some similarity between Julian’s game and the one I had. CI think he is a nine and a half, because he can throw himself back and make the team play. He is a very technical player with a great vision of the game ”. Of course, Balbo’s comparison refers to Álvarez’s participation in the Argentine National Team, but without doubts that, for the Millionaire, having a youth that could have the same level as Lautaro Martínez is cause for celebration.
