From Foot Mercato, the future of Erling Haaland (21) will be at the heart of the debates. His contract runs until June 2024 with Borussia Dortmund, the Norwegian indeed has a clause allowing him to leave the Ruhr in the summer of 2022 if a suitor arrives with a check between 75 and 100M €.
Paris SG is already in the race, strong of the privileged relations between its sporting director Leonardo and the representative of the striker Mino Raiola.
Still, other competitors are in the running. Chelsea, for their part, tried to recruit him this summer, but faced with the intransigence of the BVB, the Blues finally opted for Romelu Lukaku (28, ex-Inter) and should not return to the charge.
Real Madrid have also been following this issue closely for several months, convinced that the Leeds native has a soft spot for Los Blancos. Manchester United is also around the corner. The Red Devils are hopeful that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's relationship with the forward (he was his first professional coach on Molde's side) can tip the scales in their favor.
Former Haaland father's club Manchester City, too, are keen to try their luck. Frustrated by the failure of the Harry Kane file (28 years old, Tottenham) this summer, the English champions, who lost Sergio Agüero (32 years old) this summer, intend to welcome the no.9 next summer. Pep Guardiola and his management have therefore made the Scandinavian their top priority for the summer of 2022 and are quietly advancing their pawns. The Times tells us that a meeting is scheduled for January between the Citizens' staff and Raiola to discuss a potential transfer during the summer transfer window.
The very serious British daily specifies that Puma could have a say in this matter. The German supplier is in advanced talks to recover the phenomenon at the end of his current contract with Nike, in 2022. However, the feline brand is in parallel linked with Manchester City until June 2029. From there to see a sign of further rapprochement between the parties concerned, there is only one step. The appointment is in any case well and truly taken for January.
