Haaland has become one of the most sought-after players in the transfer market since making his breakthrough at Red Bull Salzburg a couple of years ago.
Since then, he has made his way to Borussia Dortmund, joining the Bundesliga giants in January 2020. And in nearly two years since, he has established himself as one of the best strikers in the game.
Such remarkable progress in Germany has invariably put the Norwegian goal machine on the radars of many European football clubs, with Manchester City and Real Madrid among his most likely suitors.
Guardiola’s side were linked with a swoop for Haaland last summer, but were put off by Dortmund’s £150m price tag as the Bundesliga side wanted to hold onto their prized asset.
The €75M+ transfer fee is no problem for Man City, and neither is the high salary – with Mino Raiola asking for up to €50M per year.
The report claims that the chances of Haaland staying at Borussia Dortmund beyond next summer, when his exit clause becomes active, are ‘extremely slim’.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, many Man City fans have expressed their thoughts and opinions.

No way we’re paying 50m a year 😂— #FPL Cheetah (@FPLCheetah) October 20, 2021
I’d be genuinely amazed if we offered him that as a base— Brad ⚽️🔥 (@FodenFanatic47) October 20, 2021
We will never pay 50m per year. We will never pay him even half if it. He’s not getting more than Kevin— M.O.Khan (@Owaiskhan072) October 20, 2021
