Erling Haaland might be the perfect answer to Manchester City’s problems
Man City has been lacking that composure in the final stages of the UCL lately. They have been missing the mark and this season they were knocked out by Real Madrid in spite of having a first-leg advantage.
Haaland can be the final piece of the puzzle that was missing in Pep’s Manchester City team. The Citizens have been lacking a proper number 9 for the season now, and who better than Erling Haaland to fill the void. Along with Erling Haaland, the Borussia Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Burki will also leave the club ahead of the next season.
