This transfer market has been rocked by some major news. Some big names in the current football world are about to sign for new clubs this summer transfer window. Today we will give some latest updates about Erling Haaland, Cristiano Ronaldo, and Paul Pogba.
Erling Haland is close to joining Man City.
Erling Haaland is one of the most talented youngsters in modern football. He has already proved himself in the German club, Borussia Dortmund. Since his joining to Borussia Dortmund from RB Salzburg in 2020, Haaland has scored 85 goals in 88 matches. The stat shows his scoring capability as a striker. As a result, top clubs are trying to get him in the upcoming transfer window. But, Manchester City is leading the race to sign the Norweigan.
Manchester City have been playing the whole season without a genuine striker since Sergio Aguero left the club. They are trying to get a proper striker this window. So, Man City boss Pep Guardiola has made it his first priority to sign Erling Haaland. Moreover, Erling Haaland has already informed Borussia Dortmund that he will leave the club in the upcoming transfer window. He also wants to join the Guardiola side.
However, Manchester City must meet the release clause with the German club to get Haaland. The release clause of Erling Haaland is €75 million. So, Man City have to pay this amount. Ferran Soriano, the CEO of Manchester City, has told Borussia Dortmund that they are ready to pay the release clause. So, we can say that Haaland will join Manchester City in the coming weeks.
The situation of Cristiano Ronaldo & Paul Pogba
Manchester United will not take part in the next UEFA Champions League, as they failed to qualify for this tournament. So the fans are very keen to know the future of Cristiano Ronaldo. Ronaldo never missed UCL since his debut. But, next season, he can’t play this tournament if he stays in Man United.
However, Ronaldo has one more year left in his contract with the Red Devils. He is also willing to stay next season at the club. But it depends on the decision of Erik Ten Hag, the new manager of Manchester United.
On the other hand, Paul Pogba can leave this transfer window as he didn’t renew his contract with Man United. Manchester City are interested in signing him. But Paul Pogba doesn’t want to play for an English club. Juventus and Real Madrid are favorites to sign Pogba.
