Manchester City targeting €80million transfer to follow Erling Haaland deal

Posted by

Manchester City are reportedly interested in another big-name transfer target after wrapping up a deal for Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland.

The Norway international is set to sign for City this summer, according to The Athletic, and it looks like Pep Guardiola and co. are not done yet, with Leicester City’s James Maddison now in their sights, according to El Nacional.

The report explains that City would have to pay around €80million for Maddison, who has been a top performer for Leicester in the last few years.

It’s a bit surprising that the 25-year-old hasn’t already found himself a move to a bigger club in the recent past, but that could change this summer.

City brought in a similar style of player in the form of Jack Grealish last summer, but it’s fair to say the former Aston Villa man hasn’t really lived up to expectations at the Etihad Stadium so far.

Maddison may well be an upgrade, but it remains to be seen what this potential signing would do for Grealish and for the numerous other attacking players in Guardiola’s squad.
