A new report from Sport Witness has claimed Manchester City is among clubs Erling Haaland is intrigued by joining. Joining City are the regular heavy weights, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich and all the other top 6 clubs in England.

Haaland is also reportedly nearing an expedited exit this summer instead of next if Dormund fail to qualify to the UEFA Champions League.

Initial prices have pegged the deal, if done this summer, at around 120 million euros. A fee City could easily pay if motivated enough. The other clubs not so much, as the pandemic has heightened financial insecurity and debts at other clubs.

A proven goal scorer, Haaland will garner much interest and City will need to be aggressive if they determine he is their number one target. There is of course, the Leo Messi factor and I truly don’t know if City will/can sign both.

One can hope.
