Manchester City want Haaland, ready to challenge Real Madrid

Spanish media outlets have been claiming for the past several months that Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland is leaning towards joining a Spanish club this summer. However, the story in Germany is entirely different, with Premier League champions Manchester City believed to be frontrunners for the Norwegian’s signature.

Contrary to numerous other reports, German publication Bild says that Haaland is not as inclined to join either Real Madrid or Barcelona as previously thought. With Barcelona’s financial issues, Los Blancos were thought to be in the front foot when it comes to landing the in-demand striker.

However, Manchester City are leading the race if the German reports are true. The claim is not entirely far-fetched, owing to the fact that the Sky Blues can certainly challenge anyone else if it comes down to a bidding war.
