Álvarez was born in Avilés, Asturias. A product of Sporting de Gijón's prolific youth academy, Mareo, the 17-year-old made it to the B-team during the 2009–10 season, with the side playing in the third division.
Álvarez made his debut with the main squad on 16 May 2010, starting in a 0–2 away loss against Racing de Santander and thus becoming the second youngest player ever to debut in La Liga for the club, at the age of 18 years and 113 days. However, he lost this record to Juan Muñiz that very match, when the latter entered the pitch in the 46th minute.
