Erling Haaland will join the Etihad in the summer.
The 21-year-old forward has scored 86 goals in 89 appearances in all competitions for Borussia Dortmund over the past two seasons.
The youngster is expected to thrive in the Premier League and could well be the league’s leading goalscorer.
Liverpool legend Steve McManaman is backing the striker to be a lethal force in the top flight.
“I think Manchester City would have still been successful and at the top regardless of whether they bought Erling Haaland or not,” McManaman told HorseRacing.net.
“However, if age wasn’t a factor then Harry Kane would have been better suited as he has played in the Premier League for a number of years now and he’s a proven goalscorer in the league.
“I do, however, believe that Erling Haaland could come in and score as many goals as he wants next season as long as he stays fit. He could be absolutely prolific as we’ve already seen at Borussia Dortmund and at Red Bull Salzburg.
“He should continue to be prolific at Manchester City as they’re a great team with better players and he’s going to have chances put on a plate for him. If he stays fit and well, he’ll be top goalscorer in the Premier League next season.”
