Erling Haaland

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has refused to be drawn to reports linking Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland with the Premier League leaders. 

Haaland is yet to sign a new deal at Dortmund and continues to be linked with a move away from the Bundesliga side with City termed as a possible destination.

“Since I am here, every month or two months people say we are going to sign 50 players,” Guardiola said.

“Right now, listen, it’s impossible that I am going to talk about some guy who is not here.

“He’s a Dortmund player and we’ve an incredible run ahead of us. At the end of the season, it is the transfer window and many things are going to happen.

“Maybe I speak about this club needing a striker for the next five, six, seven years maybe once in the last 12 months. I’m not going to be the guy saying we are a success or not a success because we didn’t have a striker.”

According to The Times, Dortmund expects Haaland to sign a £500k-a-week deal with City.
