Man City’s transfer belief in Kylian Mbappe has influenced Erling Haaland’s decision.

MANCHESTER CITY are said to be interested in signing Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund.

According to reports, Manchester City will try to persuade Erling Haaland to fill their striking void this summer, with the Premier League champions hoping that Real Madrid’s pursuit of Kylian Mbappe will work in their favor.

Haaland is being courted by a number of Europe’s top clubs ahead of his expected departure from Borussia Dortmund next summer.

Since joining the Bundesliga in 2020, the 21-year-old has scored 76 goals in just 75 games.

Dortmund are desperate to keep their talisman, but it appears Haaland will opt to leave Germany when his contract’s reported £64 million release clause expires at the end of the season.

According to a new report from The Athletic, Manchester City have set their sights on signing Haaland after missing out on a deal for England captain and Tottenham star Harry Kane last summer.

City may decide to rekindle their interest in Tottenham’s Kane, but according to the report, Haaland is now the team’s top target.

According to the report, despite fierce competition for Haaland’s signature, City will make every effort to persuade the youngster to follow in his father’s footsteps and play for the blue half of Manchester.

At the turn of the millennium, Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, worked for City for three years.

Real Madrid are expected to be the biggest obstacle to City signing Haaland, but their chances of doing so could be hampered by their pursuit of Mbappe, who is also expected to join Los Blancos at the end of the season.

If Mbappe’s arrival at the Bernabeu convinces Haaland to reject a move to La Liga, City could profit.

Despite failing to sign Kane in the summer and lacking central striker options, Pep Guardiola’s side is on the verge of winning the Premier League for the fourth time in five years.

City currently lead Chelsea by ten points and appear to be in a good position to wait until the summer before adding to their squad.

Despite the fact that the city may not be friendly.
