Manchester City haven’t been firing every cylinder this season in the Premier League, in part due to Sergio Aguero’s injury problems. Although the Sky Blues have managed to order their defense with the arrival of Ruben Dias from Benfica and the resurgence of John Stones.
However, his lack of goals in advance remains a problem and relying solely on Raheem Sterling to constantly find the net for the remainder of the season could be a serious problem.
Having said this, GOAL reports now they claim that Manchester City is hatching a move that could absolutely revolutionize their three attacking forwards. The report claims that the Sky Blues are considering signing Erling Haaland next summer.
Haaland would be the ideal signing given that Agüero has already backed down this season due to injuries and his contract will expire this June. Manchester City desperately need a suitable striker and who else but Erling Haaland to fill the gap?
The 20-year-old Norwegian striker has conquered the Bundesliga with this powerhouse in front of goal. Haaland now has 32 goals for Borussia Dortmund in just 33 matches, which just goes to show how clinical the former RB Leipzig player’s forward is.
However, Manchester City face two problems in their bid to sign Erling Haaland next summer. Reports indicate that Manchester City owners have made it clear that the team can sign Lionel Messi next season or three players. Leo Messi will be a free agent next summer, while Borussia Dortmund will certainly not let Erling Haaland leave next season.
The other problem the Sky Blues face is that BVB could demand a massive transfer fee. Erling Haaland’s buyout clause worth € 75 million will kick in from 2022, however if the club considers profiting from it next summer it will certainly be an astronomical figure.
