Haaland in Man City – is it a needed transfer?

One of the most promising footballers of recent years, except for Mbappe, is a Norwegian striker Erling Haaland. The youngster shined during a youth World Cup, where he scored a record nine goals in a single game against Honduras. Then, he confirmed his bombardier’s status in the Champions League with RB Salzburg, where Haaland scored eight goals in 6 games of the group stage, having among the opponents strong Liverpool and Napoli.

His move to Borussia Dortmund looked just like another step before joining one of the best football clubs, and now journalists and insiders are sure Erling will join Manchester City this summer.

With multiple records set in Bundesliga, Erling moves to the Albion into one of the strongest teams. The Citizens under Josep Guardiola are always among the favourites in taking the English Premier and Champions Leagues. Interestingly, Erling’s father, Alf-Inge, was also playing in the Sky Blues’ jersey, so for the Haaland junior, this move will be quite symbolic.

Of course, on the one hand, this move is ideal for both sides. Manchester City needs a central striker, while Haaland is ready to storm the most valuable trophies. Erling is flexible and smart enough to play any kind of football, even Guardiola’s one. Simultaneously, Josep receives one of the best and most promising finishers of recent years, which should help him to flourish even more. Want more interesting news?

However, there are some drawbacks and pitfalls to the deal. While the transfer fee is pretty small for such a guy – only 75 million euros, the sources talk about another 50 million for agents of the Norwegian bombardier. It looks a bit risky for the guy who receives injuries regularly in Bundesliga, while in the EPL, their numbers can even rise. Another danger is to pay an incredible salary for a young guy with no notable success, while the figures like De Bruyne, Silva, Dias, or Mahrez have much greater success stories even on the national level. Of course, the time will answer all these questions, while now we can only wait for official confirmations and assume how Haaland will be playing in Manchester City.
