Erling Haaland has dropped a hint about where he could play next season amid links to a move away from Borussia Dortmund with Manchester City vying for his services.
The Premier League champions are in the market for a forward to replace Sergio Agüero, who left the club after a ten-year spell in Manchester but Harry Kane has been their top target in the ongoing transfer window.
The Cityzens are thought to be have made a £100m offer for the England captain but Spurs chairman Daniel Levy is reluctant to part ways with Kane this summer and has slapped a staggering £150m price tag on the marksman’s head to fend off potential suitors.
Haaland is also among their targets, even though Borussia Dortmund want to keep hold of the Norwegian until next summer.
Haaland has seemingly quashed all rumours about a possible departure by sharing a picture of himself on social media in Borussia Dortmund colours looking in good spirits during pre-season preparations.

The Norwegian talisman is believed to be Chelsea’s number one transfer target before the new Premier League season as they looks to also bring in a new poacher.
Haaland’s release clause, which becomes active in 2022, is in the region of £68m – but Chelsea and City were reportedly said to not be keen on waiting until then to make a move for the young prodigy.
Haaland, who is widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world right now, has bagged a staggering 57 goals in 59 matches for Dortmund since joining from RB Salzburg in January 2020.
