Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland has reportedly dethroned Barcelona striker Lionel Messi from Manchester City’s priorities.
Citizens are interested in stepping up the attack in the next summer transfer window, especially after the confirmation of the departure of the Argentine star, Sergio Aguero.
Pep Guardiola’s team has long been associated with big names that could end up at the Etihad, where the main one has been the Barcelona star, Messi.
Messi has been linked with a reunion with his former manager Guardiola, with the English club being one of two possible destinations alongside Paris Saint-Germain.
However, now rumors that Messi can still remain at the Camp Nou have made City move to other names, where the favorite is the Norwegian star, Haaland, who seems to be leaving Borussia Dortmund immediately.
According to the medium The Mirror, City have removed Messi from their list as a top priority, with Guardiolan now favoring a move for Haaland ahead of the Argentine.
But, the transfer of Haaland will be very difficult, as Barcelona, Real Madrid, Chelsea, Manchester United and Liverpool are also interested. / Telegraphy /
