Former Manchester City defender Steve Howey has told The Transfer Tavern in an exclusive interview that Erling Haaland would be a better option than Harry Kane for Pep Guardiola’s side.
Kane continues to be linked with a move away from Tottenham, with The Athletic recently claiming that the England international has his “heart set on a move to Manchester City” this summer.
Who would be the better signing?
Discussing the two strikers, Howey told TT:
“He [Haaland] certainly knows how to score goals. He would be a better option than Kane for me, even though Kane’s a class act, because this lad’s still got years and years ahead of him.”
Haaland is still only 20, turning 21 next month, so it is a very good point. However, getting him out of Dortmund before next summer, when his release clause becomes active, is looking like mission impossible.
The German club continue to insist that Haaland is going nowhere, with sporting director Sebastian Kehl telling Sport1 (via The Telegraph) last month that their talisman will still be wearing black and yellow once the new season starts.
