The January Transfer Window just wrapped up, but teams are already lining up to try and land Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland later this year. He is without question one of the biggest names to watch, of course including Kylian Mbappe and Paul Pogba.
For Haaland, it's clear that Barcelona is all set to try and land his signature down the road. That won't be easy, though, as Pep Guardiola and Manchester City are reportedly making Haaland a top priority. Which powerhouse will he end up joining?
[@FabrizioRomano🥇] | Barcelona and Manchester City have placed Erling Haaland as their absolute priority. Laporta talked about the Norwegian with Raiola in Turin. Real Madrid are not sure whether they will be able to sign both Haaland and Mbappe. #fcblive— Barca_Talks (@BarcaTalkonly) January 17, 2022
At just 21 years old, and set to turn 22 this summer, Haaland is one of the most exciting young players out there. He's an incredible talent and has a knack for scoring goals.
While Man City just signed Argentinian forward Julian Alvarez to a new deal, with him arriving this summer to the EPL, Haaland is viewed as a world-class striker who could make City's attack even stronger.
This team is looking for the long-term replacement of club legend Sergio Aguero. Aguero left this past summer to join Barcelona, but he's since had to retire due to a heart condition.
Will Haaland end up being the man to score mind-blowing goals for City in place of Aguero? That's what MCFC fans are hoping for. We'll find out in the coming months how things play out, but Haaland joining City would be an unreal addition for Guardiola.
