MANCHESTER CITY is the main contender for the signing of Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland.
This is according to the Betfair bookmakers, who installed the side of Pep Guardiola in Evens to clinch his signature.
Haaland has scored 68 goals in 67 appearances since arriving for Dortmund from RB Salzburg.
And his incredible exploits have several members of the European elite clamoring for his services.
But champions Manchester City see the 21-year-old as their main transfer target and could deliver the first blow.
The Times says Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola is expected to speak with city officials in January.
The striker still has more than two years on his contract, which expires in June 2024.
Although it is well documented that Haaland’s current deal contains a £ 64million release clause that will take effect in 2022.
Erling Haaland next club
- Manchester City – SVE
- Paris Saint-Germain – 5/1
- Bayern Munich – 5/1
- Manchester United – 10/1
- Real Madrid – 1/10
- Chelsea – 15/1
- Newcastle – 50/1
Guardiola is desperate to sign a recognized striker who said goodbye to Sergio Aguero and missed Tottenham talisman Harry Kane.
It is also believed that the Citizens could be helped by the fact that Haaland’s father Alfe-Inge himself played for City.
Paris Saint-Germain are second in the betting market at 5/1.
The French heavyweights seem increasingly likely to lose Kylian Mbappe to Real Madrid and will need a suitable replacement before next season.
Bayern Munich are also priced at 5s as they seek a long-term successor to Robert Lewandowski.
Manchester United and Real Madrid are stuck together at 10/1 with Chelsea further behind at 15s.
Newcastle are an underdog in the seven-rider field with a whopping 50/1.
