Champions League: Man City vs Dortmund, City meets Erling Haaland

Manchester City will today see what Erling Haaland is capable of in the Champions League fixture.

Pep Guardiola’s side have been on the striker’s radar in the recent weeks and hopes to close a deal come next summer.

The club is likely to spend more than £100m to bring in a new attacker following Aguero’s announcement of moving away from the Etihad.

“So far the club has decided not to spend close to £100m on a player, or more than £100m on a player,” said Guardiola.

“Maybe in the future it is going to happen if they decide it is necessary to improve the team for the next five, 10 years, for many reasons, but so far the club, the organisation, the CEO, the sporting director, decided not to do it and that’s why they didn’t do it. But maybe in the future – i don’t know.

Erling Haaland’s performance tonight could convince Man City officials to sign him or not. The Norwegian could be a perfect replacement for Sergio Aguero.

As Borussia Dortmund fights for a spot in the Champions League semi-finals, Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent, is reportedly negotiating with potential buyers regarding the summer transfer.

The potential suitors include Chelsea, Manchester United and City who are all craving for a complete striker.
