‘OMG’, ‘Please be true’, ‘bring him to the Etihad’ – Man City fans react as Erling Haaland set to join Guardiola’s side this summer


Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Erling Braut Haaland‘s father has urged his son to join Pep Guardiola’s side in the summer transfer window.

It’s no secret Manchester City want Erling Haaland at the Etihad Stadium this summer. Having missed out on a deal for Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane earlier this year, the Norwegian goal machine is reportedly next Pep Guardiola’s ‘primary striker target’ as he looks for a new No 9 after the departure of Sergio Aguero last summer.

The 21-year-old Borussia Dortmund striker has a host of top European clubs chasing his signature in June, due to a £68m release clause becoming active in the contract that was signed when he joined from Red Bull Salzburg in 2020.

Recent reports have claimed that the prolific Norwegian striker prefers joining Real Madrid, but it looks like Manchester City could be leading the race to sign him.

According to Football Insider, City are leading the chase and are in pole position to sign the 21-year-old thanks to his father, former City player Alf Inge Haaland.

The 49-year-old, who spent three years in Manchester, has urged his son to join the Premier League champions ahead of other potential suitors according to the report.

With nothing set in stone yet, one can be sure that Real Madrid will aim to leapfrog City in the race to sign the Borussia Dortmund superstar.

In light to the report on Haaland, many Man City fans have reacted – here are some of the best responses.
