Erling Haaland already has his first serious suitor. According to ‘The Times’, Manchester City will push for a deal in January to sign him in the summer.
The future of Erling Haaland will be one of the topics of conversation throughout 2022. The Norwegian is clearly aiming to leave Borussia Dortmund and in England Manchester City are already favourites to sign him.
According to ‘The Times’, the Sky Blue team will begin contacts in January and, therefore, Harry Kane will take a back seat after refusing to sign in 2021.
According to the aforementioned source, Manchester City will ask to meet with Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent, while Borussia Dortmund are getting used to the idea that they will lose the star and have already looked for a possible replacement.
In the Sky Blues’ favour is the fact that Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, was a Manchester City player at the turn of the century, which could play an important role for Erling, a child at the time.
Although it was expected that Erling Haaland could leave for 75 million euros from Borussia Dortmund, the latest figures speak of 90 million euros as a more realistic figure. In addition, Raiola’s commissions and the transfer fee will have to be included, which will push the price up to a figure that only football’s new billionaires could afford.
In addition to Manchester City, other Premier League giants such as Manchester United and Liverpool, and teams such as PSG, Real Madrid and to a lesser extent Barcelona, are all tracking the young talent.
