Haaland, City goal

Guardiola's men have set their goal on the Norwegian forward for next summer, before his hiring in 2022 will be easier for the rest.


The English press got up this Friday with Manchester City's plans for next summer. The 'citizens' want to move fast in the market, especially faster than a clause makes its appearance: Erling Haaland will cost 75 million pounds in the summer of 2022 due to a clause that he has in his contract, so they want to act before make it affordable for the rest of the clubs. According to the Daily Mirror, the English team wants to attack Borussia Dortmund this summer, overtake Chelsea in the operation, and sign the Norwegian forward for around 110 million.

As the information from the Mirror points out, Haaland is the number one objective of the entity and, also, of Pep Guardiola. The more than foreseeable departure of Kun Agüero after 10 years in Manchester will leave a void at the top of the attack that City does not want to miss to go after one of the greatest talents in world football. If Haaland arrives at Manchester City he would become one of the highest paid forwards in Europe (he is aiming for 450,000 euros a week) .

Both Agüero and Gabriel Jesus have not had a regular season. The Argentine has only started three times due to his injuries and his positive for coronavirus, while Gabriel Jesus has been four seasons without having been consecrated in Guardiola's eleven. Haaland, for his part, has scored 22 goals in 21 games this season, including six in the Champions League, a competition in which the 'citizens' have set their goal.

To top it off, Haaland has a family connection to Manchester City. His father, Alf-Inge, played 41 games with the light blue jersey between 2000 and 2003.
