Why City might miss out on Haaland

Paul Merson believes Chelsea might oust Manchester City in the race to sign Erling Haaland.

The two teams from England are both interested to sign the player who has been scoring plenty of goals in Europe over the last two years.

At Dortmund and Leipzig, the young striker has scored goals galore and at 21, he is already tipped to be the best.

“Of all the teams who are in for Erling Haaland, Chelsea are the ones who need him most,” Merson wrote in the Daily Star.

“They have always been successful with someone who has a presence up front and Haaland has that. He’s going to score bundles wherever he goes.

“And if you buy him this summer, you still have the prospect of being able to sell him for a profit later down the line because of his age. I’m not sure he’s such a good fit for Manchester City, where he probably wouldn’t play as much.

“But for whoever gets him, it will be worth it. He puts up numbers and he keeps on doing it. Whoever signs him will have a chance of winning the league.”
