Man Metropolis engaged on masterplan to herald world-class striker
Borussia Dortmund’s striker Erling Haaland is by far one of the most sought-after attackers in football. Although the talented hit man is currently trading in Germany’s top division, he has a modest release clause of around £ 68m that is set to become active at the end of the season and is expected to lead to a bidding war. One of the clubs allegedly vying for the Norwegian international’s signature is Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City – but the Citizens are not alone, they may have an ace up their sleeve when it comes to winning the Haaland race.
That emerges from a recent Daily Star report claiming the Premier League champions are working with kit sponsor Puma to sign Haaland next summer.
The outlet realizes that the global clothing brand would like the Borussia Dortmund striker to be the “figurehead” in the Etihad Stadium and is even ready to offer him an incredible 50 million pounds over four years.

Haaland currently has a sponsorship deal with Puma’s rival Nike, and that deal won’t end for another two years.
However, it has been claimed that the world-class striker would be open to a change of sponsorship alliances and, should that happen, it is speculated that Puma’s influence could be enough to make the Citizens win the race for football’s hottest prospect.
