Manchester City are looking at Norwegian wonderkid Erling Haaland as a potential replacement for Sergio Agüero, according to 90min.
Agüero is City’s all-time record goalscorer; but is likely to leave the club within the next eighteen months as he approaches the latter stages of his career.
One of the candidates reportedly identified to replace the Argentine is Haaland, who has shot to fame this season after some incredible goalscoring displays for RB Salzburg and Borussia Dortmund, both in the Champions League and domestically.
Haaland joined Dortmund in January, but reportedly has a release clause in his contract that will become active at the end of the 2020/21 season. The fee needed to sign Haaland after that point is thought to be in the region of £60m.
Alf-Inge Haaland, Erling’s agent and father, played for City for three years at the start of the century, and it’s believed that the two clubs are in touch. City hope that their relationship with the wonderkid’s dad could give them the edge in the race to sign Haaland.
However, it’s extremely unlikely that City would have a clear path to sign the youngster, with plenty of clubs sure to be interested. Another player City are reportedly interested in is PSG striker Mauro Icardi, who has impressed in his loan switch from Inter Milan.
