‘I believe': PL legend makes prediction on £64m ‘super talent’ wanted by Manchester City
Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that Manchester City target Erling Haaland is likely to move to England one day.
Speaking to Bild, the iconic Premier League manager claimed that a club from the English top-flight will be the one to sign Haaland next summer. The Borussia Dortmund attacker is one of the hottest properties in world football.
As reported by Bild, City are one of three clubs keen on signing the Norwegian striker. Dortmund want €75m (£64m) for their star forward, and Pep Guardiola’s side are seemingly in the lead to sign Haaland.
After all, the attacker grew up supporting City as a child. And with the Premier League giants still not replacing Sergio Aguero with a natural striker, Haaland could be perfect for City in January or the 2022 summer window.
And for Wenger, the ex-Arsenal manager believes that Haaland will end up in the Premier League before we know it.
Wenger said when asked about the future of Haaland: “I believe it will happen [a move to England]. economic power of the Premier League is too strong.
The former Arsenal boss later added with: “English football is dominant because it is where the most money is. The best players always go the best way to make the most money.
“Haaland is likely to be the next high-profile goalscorer after Mbappe. He’s a super talent.”
Where Haaland ends up next will be one of the most covered stories in football in the coming months, and given the intelligence of Wenger, there is a good chance that City are truly in the best position to sign the Dortmund star in the next 12 months.
