Since joining Borussia Dortmund in January, Haaland has emerged as one of, if not, the, most prolific marksman in Europe.
The young Norwegian has featured in 32 matches, so far for Borussia Dortmund and has been directly involved in a monumental 39 goals, in all competitions.
The young forward’s clinical form is, of course, turning the heads of some of Europe’s biggest hitters, including Premier League giants, Manchester City.
According a recent claim from German journalist, Christian Falk, Pep Guardiola’s side are keen to bring the Borussia Dortmund striker to the Etihad next summer.
Falk claims that the blue half of Manchester would like to bring Haaland to England before his release clause comes in to effect, during the summer of 2022.

It is understood that Haaland’s release clause will stand at £65m from 2022 onwards, as per Daily Mail.
However, according to Falk, Manchester City may be open to paying more next summer in an attempt to bring the wonder-kid to Manchester.
