Man City Keen On Signing No.9 Man United Long-Term Target
Man City are in a pole position to sign Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland, who is a target for Man United and Liverpool. However, it is Man City that currently have the upper hand in the pursuit of Norway international……Man City Keen On Signing No.9 Man United Long-Term Target
Although there are no definite guarantees that Erling will leave Bundesliga giants in the summer, it appears the PL leaders are in pole position due to his father, Alfie Haaland’s strong relationship with the club.
A former Norwegian international himself, Alfie had played for Man City from 2000 to 2003. It should play a key role in giving the Citizens the upper hand, while the teams boast the services of a star manager in Pep Guardiola as well as the realistic chance of winning every tournament they take part in.
Not to mention, Man City do have the economic firepower to pull off a deal, especially as they prepare for life without Sergio Aguero. The ageing Argentine striker’s current deal at Etihad expires in the summer, with Real Madrid among teams reportedly interested in his services.
Although both the clubs do possess enough financial prowess, as well as the sporting prospect, it appears Man City’s consistency does put them in the driver’s seat ahead of Liverpool’s crumbling form and Man United’s historical struggles since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson.
Indeed, the current Spanish champions are desperate to find a long-term replacement for Karim Benzema and are poised to invest in a galactic this summer, making the 20-year-old striker quite an attractive option. It doesn’t bode well for Liverpool and Man United, who are among the top contenders to sign Haaland.
