Erling Haaland is the most sort after player in world football right now. Most of the top clubs in Europe like Manchester City believe that they have a chance to sign the Norwegian international.
The former Salzburg striker has been described as a generational talent by many. This largely because of his tender age of 20. At such a young age he has shown great composure in front of goal.
Some have even suggested that Haaland vs Mbappe could be the next Ronaldo vs Messi. This season he has been leading the line very well for Dortmund. Marco Reus even described him as a player of Lewandowski’s profile.
So far he has scored 33 goals and further provided 9 assists in all competitions. With so many European clubs vying for him, the Manchester giants don’t want to stay behind.
The beautiful stadium
While being conscious that the Dortmund cameras are there he said “beautiful ah”. It could possible that it might be an indication that his next destination could be Manchester City.
It is out in the open that his agent and father were in Spain to meet representatives from Barca and Real Madrid. Perhaps next week they could meet Premier League teams like Manchester United, Manchester City, and Chelsea.
All these clubs have shown interest in him. While the Germans have slammed a $150 million price tag on him. Not only this Halaand’s wage demands of £600,000-a-week wage could prove to be a stumbling block.
Manchester City to break the bank for Haaland?
Since the arrival of Pep Guardiola, Manchester City have spent relentlessly. However, they don’t usually break the bank for one player. So far Rodri is their most expensive player.
The Spaniard cost them around $70 million. Manchester City under Guardiola spent around $40-$60 million on one player. However, they will have to break the bank to sign Erling Haaland.
One thing to consider here is that for many years, there was no need for the Citizens to sign a top striker. Sergio Aguero kept on firing in goals in big numbers for them. However, he is set to leave the club at the end of the season.
Now Pep Guardiola has a new problem. Thier rivals won’t hesitate for long to sign Erling Haaland. Manchester City have the money to spend big but now they have to decide whether to spend it all or Haaland or not.
