The Manchester City striker is one of those positions that is giving for an eternal casting in the transfer market. After it was Harry Kane who took pole position to occupy the ‘nine’ of the skyblue team, the tables have turned. The Englishman did not complete his move from Tottenham and now it is Erling Haaland who is aiming for the position.
According to Sky Italia journalist Gianlucia Di Marzio, Manchester City would be “very close” to closing the deal with the Norwegian player. “I can’t imagine that Guardiola will let Gabriel Jesus go even if Haaland comes, which will happen because the agreement is very close,” he said about how the arrival of the Norwegian striker from Borussia Dortmund would affect the squad.
The journalist defended the continuity of Gabriel Jesus at Manchester City and placed the Brazilian as a different and necessary profile even if Haaland arrives. They still need another striker, a different one. Haaland is a different kind of footballer. Gabriel Jesús is going to stay because it is difficult to find a player like him. The City does not close to sell it to make money. You have the option to buy whoever you want. It will depend on whether Gabriel Jesus agrees to play less once Haaland arrives. It will depend on his attitude if he knows that another incredible striker is going to arrive,” he said.
Erling Haaland aims to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer. The Norwegian arrived as a young promise to the German team after dazzling in the Champions League with RB Salzburg and there, he has become a world football star who could leave for a figure close to 70 million euros.
Somewhat affected by injuries, the striker has once again shown this season that he is among the top players in the world. At just 21 years old, he has scored 28 goals and seven assists in 28 games, playing 24 of them as a starter.
If the ailments respect him, the born in Leeds aims to be one of the great stars of the next decade. Manchester City have already moved forward to ensure he becomes a legend in his shirt.
