Reports suggested that Pep Guardiola and Manchester City have Erling Haaland as their top transfer priority ahead of the summer transfer window. There has been a massive debate during the senior season about Manchester City’s striker situation. Pep Guardiola has preferred to play without a recognized striker week in and week out. The team enjoyed a very good season despite the striker situation.
But as things stand, the club are prioritizing signing a top young striker to lead the line next season in the summer transfer window. Manchester City have already agreed on a deal to sign Argentinian striker Julián Álvarez in the summer transfer window. The striker has drawn comparisons with Manchester City legendary striker Sergio Aguero. Despite the striker joining the club in the summer, the club are still keen to sign Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian young star has a reported €75 million release clause in his Borussia Dortmund contact that activates next summer. Clubs across Europe are desperate for the Norwiginan’s signature next summer. Major European clubs like Manchester United, Barcelona, Real Madrid, and PSG are all interested in the young striker.
Manchester City offer a contract to Erling Haaland
According to Spanish outlet AS, Manchester City offered a contract worth upwards of £500,000-per-week to Erling Haaland. But reports now suggest that the striker has knocked back the offer from the Premier League leaders. Sources close to the striker suggest that the striker is waiting for a transfer approach from Spanish giants Real Madrid. The Manchester City faithful will be hoping that the club can offer the striker a better deal to tempt the forward for a switch to the Premier League.
Florentino Pérez and Real Madrid look to be heading for one hell of a summer. The La Liga leaders are front-running the race to sign French World Cup winner Kylian Mbappé on a free transfer in the summer. The club are also keen to sign Erling Haaland in the summer transfer window. If the club can pull both the transfers off, it would certainly set the team up for all the success in the world for years to come. But whether completing both the deals is financially possible for even a super club like Real Madrid is still a big question mark.
