Haaland

Looks like we have him.

Not for me.  Too injury prone, too expensive and hate that we're dealing with Mino Raiola.

Just the player we need. Young and incredibly talented striker. Who else could we sign that is a better fit? A player like him is going to be bucks these days.

Bindippers and Rags must have heard about Haaland.

As long as his form or desire dont drop off a cliff, its a no brainer. Will score a shed load of goals. We get him for less than half of his value, in the open market £150 million is not out of the question. He has pace, which outside of Sterling who maybe off, we need in attack. Already being associated with us should mean he settles in very quickly. Only the effect on the wage structure could be a minus. KDB will want a raise.

This would be an excellent signing and lift us to a level for sure. That said we need a sharp shooter back up for when he is injured to ensure consistency.

At least we won’t have to deal with Mr. Raiola if we get Haaland. RIP to him but he was a venom to team spirit.

He had a medical yesterday apparently and will be announced by the club this week.

Pretty much confirmed in Pep's presser. He says he will talk about it when it is fully completed. So it must be very, very near now. Alvarez also on the way means it will be a much different attacking team next season already.

Manchester City can confirm we have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland to the Club on 1st July 2022.

The transfer remains subject to the Club finalising terms with the player.

A great signing. Grealish must be pleased that he won't have the worst hair cut at the club anymore

Yes, next signing needs to be a top barber for them two.

Absolute bargain, but depends on the contract clauses. Wouldn't be at all surprised if he had release clauses in his contract that lets him move on at a knock down price, when he chooses to move on.

That said what a signing, just what we need to lift us to a higher level with an improved conversion rate of goal chances.

We get the second most wanted player in the world, cant complain. Lets see if we can get Bellingham as well.

Lazy journos adding on cost of wages etc!

I take back my previous reservations and it's an absolute bargain.  Alan Shearer:

Ticks all the boxes for me. We definitely need a proper striker. With one, this season, I firmly believe we would have wrapped up the Premiership several weeks ago.
