Flocking to Twitter, many Manchester City supporters have gone wild as a fresh claim emerges on the future of striking target Erling Braut Haaland.
The Sky Blues have been eyeing Haaland throughout 2021 with reports of their interest resurfacing in recent weeks, coming after they couldn’t quite manage to land a natural centre-forward in the summer.
Alas, manager Pep Guardiola didn’t get his striker wish and he could now have to wait another year until he signs the perfect heir to club legend Sergio Aguero at Eastlands.
In a silver lining for the Spaniard, it appears there has been a major development in the pursuit of Haaland.
According to journalist Constantin Eckner of The Times, the Norway star’s agent, Mino Raiola, is now expected to hold talks with City over a potential move for his client next summer.
The dazzling 21-year-old’s release clause of £64 million is a sticking point as it comes into effect next year and Haaland is top of Begiristain’s transfer wishlist.
Flocking to this claim involving one of the best strikers in world football, it’s little wonder there are plenty of City supporters talking on social media.

Man City fans go wild for Haaland claim…
“now this is soooo amazing to hear”
“All is forgiven Txiki if you somehow manage to do this”
“We’re overdue a Txiki masterclass”
“No wayyyyyyy it’s actually happening”
“This is exciting and obviously the club will go into this in good faith. But it’s still so unlikely any Haaland offer from Raiola would fit City’s wage structure. I’m not optimistic, but this is good news.”
