Manchester City will work to sign Haaland next summer

Having had a stressful window so far, Manchester City will now focus on acquiring Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund next summer. Dortmund will demand a huge €150,000,000 fee for Haaland if there is to be an offer before the transfer deadline.

Pep Guardiola has been close to desperate to recruit a new striker since Sergio Aguero’s departure. The Citizens pursued Harry Kane before the England captain confirmed he was staying at Tottenham Hotspur.

Gabriel Jesus is the only senior centre-forward at the Etihad. Their young prospect Ferran Torres has started upfront in City’s first three Premier League games and has got on well so far.

Haaland a future target for City

The Citizens will now give their best attempts next summer to lure Haaland to the Eithad. This means that for the time being, they will play without a proper striker. As mentioned earlier, Jesus and Torres look to be their saving grace.

City sees Haaland as an alternative to Harry Kane. PSG view him as a replacement for Kylian Mbappe. Mbappe struck twice for the night’s win at Reims, though his future in Paris remains uncertain.

Pep’s men put five past Arsenal on Saturday with the boss insisting he was happy with his squad and his management team’s work. Besides Kane, City were also targeting Cristiano Ronaldo before Manchester United hijacked the deal.

Borussia Dortmund have stated clearly that the Norwegian forward is not for sale. Director Michael Zorc claimed the club were “not a bank” at the weekend amid continued rumours surrounding Haaland’s future.

At the present moment, he looks very likely to stay at the Signal Iduna Park. However, BVB will be backed into a corner next year. With the dawn of the 2022/23 season, a reported £75,000,000 release clause in his contract becomes active.

Manchester City could then be in pole position to sign Haaland. They would be a step ahead of the competition as many of their rivals will either lack the desire or the funds to pull off such a deal.
