Until now, Erling Haaland was always supposed to move to Real Madrid. But now a stunning turn in the race for the BVB star looms: It looks like Manchester City are on the cusp of signing the exceptional 21-year-old. The British news magazine published this for the first time “daily Mail”.
Haaland’s move to Manchester City must be “complete and sealed”.
German sources close to Halland confirmed that the Norwegian is very likely to choose the club under the leadership of coach Pep Guardiola. Personal terms have already been discussed and the transfer framework is ready for signature by city chiefs. However, that would only be a formality – the deal is already “closed”.
In all, Manchester City will have to spend the equivalent of 120 million euros for the transfer of the BVB player. The sum includes 75 million euros to activate the release clause, a bonus to the player and a large commission for his father, Alf Inge Haaland, and his agent. However, the Daily Mail reported that the deal was “affordable” to Manchester City.
Real Madrid and Barcelona also want to sign the player
English reporter Jonathan Smith explained to the sports magazine “Spox”The Norwegian’s move has made him a top priority for the club. “Haaland has been identified as City’s number one target since they failed to get Tottenham striker Harry Kane last summer,” he said. “The competition for the Norwegian international is difficult, but this did not deter City because the opportunity to work with Pep Guardiola is a big argument on Haaland’s part.”
Other teams also compete for the striker. The biggest competitors remain Real Madrid, Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain. It remains unclear where Haaland will ultimately turn, but the truth is that the BVB player is expected to move in the summer.
Robert Lewandowski and Erling Haaland are the two formative strikers in the Bundesliga. There has been speculation about the main attackers for years.
