The Borussia Dortmund’s striker is reportedly Pep Guardiola’s ‘primary striker target’ as he looks for a new No 9 after the departure of Sergio Aguero last summer.
The Norwegian 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.
Haaland, who remains under contract with the Black and Yellow until 2024, has already netted 13 goals in 10 appearances for Dortmund this term despite injury concerns.
Such remarkable progress in Germany has invariably put the Norwegian goal machine on the radars of many European football clubs, with Manchester City, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid among his suitors.
Fabrizio Romano has offers an exclusive update on Erling Haaland’s future which has got many Manchester City fans talking.
Fabrizio says Haaland makes decisions based on ‘the strength of sporting projects’ not ‘pay packets’, and will not commit his future to any club until the summer.
In light of the hugely exciting update, Manchester City fans have reacted – here are some of the best responses.
