The Norway international is set to leave Borussia Dortmund next summer, due to a £ 64million release clause which is expected to attract a number of contenders from the football world.
Since breaking onto the RB Salzburg scene – especially in a thrilling Champions League clash with Liverpool – Erling Haaland has been touted as one of Europe’s best strikers.
Son of former Manchester City player Alfie Haaland, ties to a transfer to the Etihad stadium have coincided with the departure of the club’s top scorer, Sergio Agüero.
In October, an exceptional report from Constantine eckner in The Times revealed that Mino Raiola had to “Hold discussions” with Manchester City in January in a bid to discuss a possible summer move.
Although the 21-year-old’s contract does not expire until 2024, the release clause that becomes active at the end of this season is affordable for a number of top European clubs.
If the previous report is to be believed, talks between Raiola and Manchester City officials are expected to take place at some point this month – with the January transfer window starting last Saturday.
Alongside Haaland, Fiorentina’s Dusan Vlahovic appear to be Manchester City’s two main targets to fill Sergio Agüero’s void. However, it is believed that any deal to sign a striker will not be reached this month, with talks set to resume this summer.
Pep Guardiola’s false nine system has been working perfectly for the Blues so far this season, with currently a 10-point gap at the top of the Premier League table between Manchester City and the chasing squad.
