Sports pundit and football coach, Gary Neville has revealed that Erling Haaland is joining Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund next season.
The English coach hinted that Pep Guardiola’s side will sign the Norwegian footballer next summer and would cut off their chase for Tottenham Hotspur striker, Harry Kane.
Naija News understands Kane was on City’s priority list since last season following the departure of Serio Aguero from Etihad Stadium, a deal, however, could not be reached.
Speaking with Sky Sports yesterday, Neville said: “We know how desperately City wanted Harry Kane last summer that didn’t happen.
“I’m not sure now they’d go back to Harry Kane next year just basically because of what happened.
“I think Haaland is going to be the big story. Mbappe is he going to leave as well for PSG that could be the one sort of big switch. He goes somewhere, Haaland goes somewhere.
“It’s going to be a big summer in terms of transfers and I suspect City, they won’t be desperate because City don’t do desperate business but they’ll be very keen to bring him.
“He would be another special player in the Premier League.”
Meanwhile, Egyptian professional footballer, Mohamed Salah has expressed willingness to extend his contract with Liverpool only if the club will bring in more capable players.
Naija News understands that Salah’s contract ends in the summer of 2023. This means the 29-year-old forward would be open to signing a pre-contract agreement with a new club six months prior to his contract expiring.
Sky Sports reports that financial terms are not the only issue of contemplation for the Egyptian on whether to stay with Liverpool or not, Salah is also observing if the English Premier League club has plans for the coming years before he signs a new deal.
While Salah indeed wants more money, he also wants to ensure he will play for a club that challenges for major honours.
