A number of Manchester City fans are delighted with comments from Mino Raiola, who is the agent of summer transfer target Erling Haaland.
The Citizens have been heavily linked with a move for the 20-year-old dynamo (The Sun), who continues to set the world alight at Borussia Dortmund. Incredibly, in 56 games for Die Schwarzgelben, he has managed to find the back of the net on 53 occasions (Transfermarkt), while he has netted 20 goals in just 16 matches in the Champions League throughout his fledgling career.
Will Haaland join City?
With City losing Sergio Aguero this summer (Manchester Evening News), they need another striker, and £99m-valued Haaland (Transfermarkt) fits the bill. Unfortunately, Pep Guardiola has previously had problems with Raiola in regards to Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Goal.com), but it seems that the agent is ready to forget the past and has revealed that he has no problem with the former Barcelona manager.
Raiola told Diario AS [via Sport Witness]: “Guardiola is a great coach. I don’t hate anyone, I don’t find him unpleasant. I don’t know him in person. I didn’t like what he did with Zlatan, but this is the past…”
These comments were shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and they attracted plenty of attention from City supporters. These fans took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about the Haaland news
“Yessirrrrrr you build those bridges”
“Oh Haaland baby”
“Ohhhhhh MINO IS BUILDING BRIDGES!!!! Welcome big Haaaaaaaland”
“Haaland is coming home”
“He says get Haaland baby”
