Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola agrees with Robert Lewandowski over Erling Haaland amid Chelsea transfer links.
The Borussia Dortmund sensation has been attracting plenty of interest from big-name clubs, with recent reports suggesting Chelsea are likely to have to spend around £150million to sign him.
Should Chelsea complete a big-money deal for the extremely talented Leeds-born forward, the move will no doubt create a tinge of jealousy from Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, who is also understood to be keen on adding him to his squad at the Etihad Stadium.
“The numbers speak for themselves,” said Guardiola after UCL quarter-final vs Dortmund, as quoted by the Mirror. “Of course he’s one of the best strikers in the world right now at his age.
“I’ve seen few of his games, honestly, because I didn’t have much time. But I saw the highlights and the numbers in the Champions League and the league are impressive.
“I know the quality of this player and I think everyone knows. But in two weeks I could answer better, because I didn’t see much.”
Meanwhile Bundesliga Golden Boot rival and Bayern Munich goal machine Lewandowski is optimistic that Haaland will become the “best forward in the world.”
“He’s a great player,” Lewandowski told CBS Sports. “He has great potential, but he’s still very young.
“In the future, he has the chance to become the best forward in the world, for sure.”
