Erling Haaland is poised to be a generational talent in modern day football. Haaland and Mbappe are the two players who have the potential to take Ronaldo and Messi’s place. Pep definitely wants one of them to be at Manchester City and Haaland looks more likely of the two.
Erling Haaland has been the source of a lot of transfer speculation. Borussia Dortmund is confident that the player will stay with them for another year but Haaland’s activities bring suspicion upon that thought.
Haaland did went for visits to a host of clubs to listen to their pitches for him. Manchester City and Chelsea are the two clubs heavily linked with a move for the striker and both of them are in dire need of a proper number 9 too.
Chelsea would surely want someone like Haaland to relieve Timo Werner from the center forward role. City on the other hand just saw the departure of Sergio Aguero and Haaland would be a perfect replacement.
Surely both will be exciting prospects for Haaland as one of them is the Premier League title winner and the other is the UEFA Champions League winner. Haaland was tight-lipped on the matter but now things have changed.
There is a video of the Norwegian international partying with Manchester City’s Riyad Mahrez and City fans are just going crazy! Many have taken this as an indication that a move for Haaland could be on the cards for Manchester City.
Riyad Mahrez takes on the recruitment responsibility for Manchester City ?
Riyad Mahrez and Erling Haaland were seen enjoying their holidays in Mykonos. What’s really funny is Mahrez’s response to the tweet. It feels as if Mahrez himself is hinting towards the fact that City are trying to lure Haaland.
Erling Haaland has 41 goals and 12 assits in 41 apperances for Borussia Dortmund. He’s the kind of talent around which you can build your squad. Any means necessary for securing a transfer like this are justifiable.
However, as per reports from Football London Mahrez was quick to turn down any ideas. “Just having fun calm down,” he said. Although that didn’t do much to stop the excitement of City fans.
Chelsea also has a very good chance of landing the deal. The club will have availability of funds and Haaland looks the kind of player they’d go for. Being the current Champions also is a big attraction for Haaland who loves to play in the Champions League.
However, both of the clubs need to keep Borussia Dortmund’s transfer strategies in mind. Dortmund has set a £154M price tag for Erling Haaland. There were also rumors that Chelsea will be backing off because of the amount but you can’t definitively rely on them.
In fact, it would be more like Chelsea too sneak in secretly and steal the deal like they did in Werner’s case. Although Thomas Tuchel kept his mouth shut on the scenario when asked about it. This could be a source of motivation for Manchester City, however, the big price tag will certainly be an issue for Pep Guardiola too.
