Manchester City: Spanish source drops big Erling Haaland transfer update -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

As per Cadena SER, there has been a big transfer update out of Manchester City involving heavily-linked Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Braut Haaland.

The Lowdown: Sky Blues chase striker signing…

Following their failed attempts to sign Spurs’ Harry Kane last summer, Pep Guardiola’s side have had to make do without a world-class natural centre-forward option again this season.

In what has become a narrow title race, with City now just three points ahead of nearest rivals Liverpool, eyes are on whether the Sky Blues can retain their English crown without a star striker.

Guardiola has utilised City’s array of attacking midfield talent to great effect in his false-nine system, but according to reliable reports, a marquee centre-forward is on the agenda later in the year.

The Athletic’s David Ornstein says that Haaland in particular is a top target as news now emerges from Spain regarding the Premier League champions’ pursuit of the 21-year-old.

The Latest: Man City in pole position for Haaland…

According to Cadena SER, there are ‘five offers on the table’ for Haaland ahead of this summer, including one from Man City.

Indeed, the report claimed that Guardiola’s side are apparently ‘first in the list’ as they enter pole position to sign the Norway star.

The Verdict: Great news…

As the Citizens become favourites to secure one of world football’s most in-demand sensations, this can only come as great news, especially given that Real Madrid looked like they were winning the race at one point.

The £126,000-per-week forward, lauded for his ‘genius’ by CNN International Sports Anchor Alex Thomas, has bagged a sensational 23 goals and six assists over just 20 appearances in all competitions this season (Transfermarkt).

Highlighting his clinical presence in front of goal, Haaland’s physicality at 6 foot 4 also marks him out as a player who is tailor-made for the Premier League, and something City that are arguably missing in attack.
