The 20-year-old is the best young goalscorer in Europe. Erling Haaland is the finest candidate to step into Aguero’s shoes. Manchester City needs a new striker to replace Aguero and has made Haaland their prime target.
Sergio Aguero, even at 32, is still the best center-forward Manchester City has. His absence for the greater of the 2020 to 2021 season because of the injury has been a reason for the team’s inconsistent form.
Aguero has taken the club to their first league title in 44 years in 2012. Further, he is struggling to maintain his fitness. However, Manchester City must prepare for a backup for one of their best players.
Manchester City has eyes on Haaland
According to Erling Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge Håland, Erling Haaland has an emotional connection to Manchester City. The pace and physicality would make him perfect for the Premier League.
As it set the Argentine forward to leave the Etihad Stadium this current season, the 32-year-old may speak to potential suitors from January ahead of a summer move in June or July.
Manchester City has faith in Haaland. The boy ended last season with 44 goals overall, across his spells at both clubs. Fun fact: he turned 20 in July. In the race to be the Bundesliga’s top scorer, following Eintracht Frankfurt’s Andre Silva and Bayern Munich’s Robert Lewandowski, Haaland has netted 22 goals in 21 appearances.
Being tall, swift and the best on the front line, City fans believe Haaland is the ultimate. The competition is really very tough from almost every other major European club for officials to contend with. With that, the only other alternative with an Etihad switch has been Lautaro Martinez.
Haaland has got the eyes of Europe’s top clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester United, and Real Madrid because of his remarkable progress, but Man City is searching to steal a march on the competition.
How Much for Haaland?
Even though the £65million release clause in Haaland’s contract kicks in next year, Manchester City will pay more to ensure they get their man this summer.
The solution being identified would come at an enormous cost. At least £100million to secure Haaland, making him the most expensive signing in the history of English football.
In addition, Man City is ready to spend £100million this summer to compete against all. Haaland has been a revelation for Borussia Dortmund, this season netting 10 times in eight appearances.
