Manchester City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak is reportedly keen on signing Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer, as the club are prepared to make a £100 million bid for the Norwegian forward.
City are in hunt for a replacement for Sergio Aguero this summer, with the Argentine nearing the end of a decade-long spell in the Premier League.
And according to the Mirror, Manchester City aim to sign Haaland in a £100 million deal, with chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak ‘willing to sanction‘ a move. Head coach Pep Guardiola believes that winning the Premier League title again this season will help them secure a player that he sees as Sergio Aguero’s ‘long-term replacement‘.
The report also highlights the issue of the player’s release clause, which doesn’t seem to be making City want to wait an extra year. Despite the £68 million clause due to come into effect in just over 12 months time, officials at the Etihad Stadium are ‘not prepared to wait until then‘ and feel ‘increasingly positive‘ about their chances of signing the striker this summer.
Haaland has been spectacular for Dortmund this season, having scored 22 goals and provided 5 assists in his 21 games for the Bundesliga outfit.
