Manchester City seem to have big plans for the attack, in the summer market. Ferran Torres is very close to approaching Barcelona in January, but the English coach, Pep Guardiola, has indicated that the "citizens" will not sign a new striker, the next transfer window. In all likelihood, this means that City is raising the necessary funds, for the transfer of a superstar to the team, and the English media have revealed his name.
It is about the Dortmund bomber, Erling Haaland, who is under the radar of almost all the clubs that dominate Europe today.
This summer, Manchester City is expected to add to its coffers, full of 46.7 million pounds that will benefit from Torres's card. Coach Guardiola has reiterated that the agreement between the English and Barcelona is very close to finalization.
In fact, planning for Operation Haaland has long since begun with the Citizens, and City have almost three more deals to create the right finances for the card of a player like Erling Haaland, which has an approximate cost of 75 million euros.
First, Pedro Porro could join Sporting for around milion 8m, as his two-year loan deal expires at the end of the season. For the player, meanwhile, Real Madrid has shown interest, although Sporting can use the clause in the current contract, to finally buy the player's card.
At the same time, Schalke in Germany has the option to buy the services of the Japanese Ko Itakura, for 5 million pounds, while Morgan Rogers who also plays on loan at Bournemouth, can become a permanent player of "The Cherries" if they pay milionë 9 million.
Combining this potential revenue with that coming from the sale of Torres, City will have all the financial means to sign with Erling Haaland, if the player's desire is to play for the "citizens".
