Man City have three details left to 'finalise' Erling Haaland transfer after breakthrough


City are already set to welcome a new forward to their star-studded squad this summer after signing Julian Alvarez in January. The 22-year-old is currently on loan at River Plate until this summer with Guardiola recently admitting that he wants the striker on board for pre-season training.

“Next year he’ll be in preseason, for sure,” he said. “I learn from the players and I want to see him on the pitch, with his teammates, with what we want to do. If we were not convinced of this, we wouldn’t have signed.”

Guardiola added: “If we signed him, it’s for us and if we signed him it’s because he has the potential to play with us. To be a scandalous ‘nine’ — and when he’s in front of goal, he smells a goal and the goal is worth a lot of money. And he cost money, and (it’s) what players are paid in Europe.

“From South America to Europe, it may cost more. But we have exceptional reports of the boy and in the end he has that feeling of short space, how he finishes, it is very difficult to find.”
