'A seminal moment': Gary Lineker reacts as Manchester City confirm Erling Haaland deal

Manchester City have completed the signing of Erling Haaland and have used Monday morning to announce the striker’s arrival.

It’s the perfect start to the week for City fans, who have been eagerly anticipating the official call from City when it comes to the Norwegian star. The Premier League champions have beaten off the very best clubs in Europe to sign Haaland. The likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona were keen to bring the Norwegian in.

And BBC MOTD host and former England striker, Gary Lineker, has given his instant reaction to Haaland’s arrival, insisting it is a huge moment for English football. Taking to Twitter, Lineker has insisted the striker choosing the Premier League over Madrid and Barca is huge.

Haaland’s arrival will no doubt be lauded by City fans. Despite them winning the title, many have claimed that Pep Guardiola needs a number nine. Haaland’s arrival signals the end of that pursuit, a year after City tried their best to bring Harry Kane in from Tottenham.

TBR’s View: Haaland To City Makes The Premier League Even Better

City haven’t half pulled the big one off here. They’ve gone and got the player who is arguably the best young striker in Europe through the door. And it’ should ring alarm bells for the rest of the league.

Of course, Liverpool are signing Darwin Nunez as they try to keep pace with their biggest rivals. But for other clubs like Man United, Chelsea, and Spurs, this makes the gap to City even bigger.

But on the flipside, Haaland’s arrival is brilliant for the Premier League in general. As Lineker says, it shows that players are now choosing England over the big Spanish duo, and that could pave the way for others as well.
