Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has been linked with a move away from the German club for months now, and it appears that the Norwegian believes that Manchester City will try to sign him in the summer.
According to a report via the Express, Manchester United have apparently pulled out of the race to sign the 21-year-old striker, and the player believes that Pep Guardiola’s side will go all out to secure his services.
The 21-year-old has established himself as a world-class striker, and he has a massive future ahead of him. Manchester City could definitely use someone like him to replace Sergio Aguero in the long run.
The Premier League giants refused to replace the other turn striker at the start of this season, and they need to bring in a recognised goal scorer sooner rather than later.
The likes of Gabriel Jesus are more suited to a withdrawn role, and Haaland would be an exceptional signing for Manchester City.
The Dortmund start could be the final piece of the jigsaw for Guardiola, and his arrival could help Manchester City win the Champions League title.
Haaland has been in red hot form since joining the German club, and he has scored 76 goals in 75 matches across all competitions for them since joining the club.
The player is in scintillating form this season as well, scoring 19 goals in just 16 matches.
Real Madrid, Barcelona, PSG and Bayern Munich have all been linked with the 21-year-old striker, and it will be interesting to see where he ends up eventually.
Manchester City are one of the richest clubs in the world, and they certainly have the finances to pull off the signing.
Furthermore, they have an attractive project at their disposal and a world-class manager who could tempt the striker into moving to the Premier League this summer.
