Dortmund Haaland

According to the report, The Mirror has informed that Manchester City is ready to bring in the Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland in the next summer transfer window.

It is believed that the Citizens will be investing from the money generated from selling Ferran Torres to Barcelona for 55 million euros in this transfer window.

Haaland phenomenal record at Borussia Dortmund

Haaland has been the main man of Borussia Dortmund since he has joined the black and yellow outfit. He is a striker who scores for fun and bullies his opponents. The former Red Bull Salzburg starlet has smashed 76 goals and provided 20 assists in 75 games for Dortmund.

Meanwhile, he has scored 19 goals in 16 matches and has 5 assists to his name as well in this season across all competitions.

The Norwegian striker is one of the most consistent strikers in the world at the moment averaging 4.1 shots, 1.0 key passes, and 0.8 dribbles per game in the Bundesliga. Although, he has to improve his passing skills if he has to stay in Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City as his passing accuracy is just 70.5% in the German league.

Haaland is physically very strong and he is 1.94 meters tall that helps him to win the aerial battles in the final third and has transformed himself into one of the most versatile finishers in the world.

The Dortmund man can hold the ball and creates room for himself to shoot the ball. He is not only a finisher but also provides assists when the team needs it. Haaland has the ability to make smart runs in the opposition’s half to beat the offside traps.

Erling Haaland is not crafted for Pep Guardiola’s style of football. Nonetheless, he will do his job and score for fun considering the quality of the players like Kevin De Bruyne, Riyad Mahrez, Bernardo Silva, Joao Cancelo etc., feeding him in the final third.

If Man city goes on to win the Norwegian’s signature in the summer, it would be quite right to say that they would be unstoppable.
