Erling Haaland of Manchester City has the ability to surpass Sergio Aguero’s legacy at the Etihad Stadium
Since moving to England from the Bundesliga, Haaland has dominated English football, and Jones believes the attacker will only get better under Pep Guardiola.
Haaland signed a five-year contract with the team and paid an initial £51 million transfer fee from Borussia Dortmund to City, according to sources. (Sky Sports). It is alleged that the total transfer price was closer to £85 million when signing-on bonuses, agent commissions, and other related expenses are taken into consideration.
Astronomical numbers, but so far it appears that Haaland, who has appeared 23 times for Norway, has established himself as a valuable member of Guardiola’s team. Haaland, who reportedly earns an astounding £865,000 per week in bonuses, has already scored an astounding 42 goals from 37 appearances this season with just under one-third of the season left.
His consistency in front of goal has brought City dangerously close to an unprecedented Premier League, FA Cup, and Champions League triple. Though he has only spent a portion of one season in England, parallels to one of City’s all-time greatest players have already begun to be made.
With 260 goals in sky blue, Aguero departed the Manchester-based team as the club’s all-time leading scorer. However, there are rumours that if Haaland stays in England for a long time, the Norwegian goal machine may surpass Aguero’s record at City.
