Manchester City has apparently held a “secret meeting” with Erling Haaland and his representatives over a proposed move to the Etihad Stadium. The Borussia Dortmund striker looks set to leave his current club in the summer.
Haaland has become one of the best strikers in the world since joining Dortmund from RB Salzburg at the start of 2020. During his time at Signal Iduna Park, the 21-year-old has found the back of the net a staggering 82 times in 85 games. And he has also provided 23 assists.
Few players are worth more than Haaland is – but he has a clause in his contract which would allow him to move on this summer for just £63million. And Europe’s powerhouses are now circling.
According to The Star, City held a secret rendezvous with Haaland, his father Alfe-Inge and his super-agent Mino Raiola. And during the meeting, chiefs presented the financial terms they are prepared to offer the player.
