The pursuit of 21-year-old Borussia Dortmund player Erling Haaland is well-known. Manchester City, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United, and Bayern Munich have all been linked with Haaland.
The race is set to intensify, with Haaland reportedly holding a 75 million euro (£ 68m) release clause in his Dortmund contract starting at the end of the current season.
Football Insider reports that Man City are in the box office to sign Haaland in the major development and contact of his father Alf-Inge Haaland with the club.
Alf-Inge played for City from 2000 to 2003 and tells Erling to join the club before the rest of the couple.
The owners of the city of Abu Dhabi will launch a campaign to pursue the Norwegian athlete and will be able to meet his release clause.
Madrid’s bid to sign Haaland could be helped by Adidas, who have been linked with the club and want to put him on the board after his contract with Nike expired at the end of January.
