Manchester City definitely want to sign Erling Haaland as their new attack leader next summer. The British newspaper The Times announced on Wednesday that the Citizens will negotiate with Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent, next winter. The Norwegian top striker has a contract with his current club Borussia Dortmund until the end of June 2024, but can leave from next summer for a limited amount of 75 million euros.
Haaland would be the top priority for the team of coach Pep Guardiola and Red Devil Kevin De Bruyne for next summer. Last summer, the Citizens tried to lure attacker Harry Kane away from Tottenham, without success.
The link between Haaland and Manchester City is his father Alf-Inge, who played for the club between 2000 and 2003. His 21-year-old son has also been associated with clubs such as Manchester United, Real Madrid and PSG for months.
Hans-Joachim Watzke, the CEO of Borussia Dortmund, said two weeks ago that no decision has been made about Haaland’s departure next summer. He has previously stated that it would be difficult to keep the Norwegian in Dortmund.
