According to fresh reports from the reliable Mike Keegan, Manchester City have agreed to terms with Erling Haaland’s representatives for a deal that would see the highly sought-after striker move to the Premier League.

A long-time target for many giants of the game, including Barcelona and Real Madrid, the Norwegian is set to join the Premier League giants after they trigger his release clause of around 76 million euros ahead of this summer.

The Borussia Dortmund man was a tricky target, however, as his agent Mino Raiola and father Alfie Haaland were demanding hefty fees in commissions.

If the deal does materialise, it would stand to be the signing of the year so far, and more major developments are set to follow next week.

Manchester City will reportedly offer Haaland a very lucrative contract with a bumper wage of over 600,000 euros. He would subsequently become the highest-paid player in England by far.

The only concern with regards to the 21-year-old’s potential transfer from Borussia Dortmund was his fitness level and injury status, which looks to be either resolved or is considered no issue for the Premier League giants.

Pep Guardiola has been pushing for the signing of a top-class striker for a while now, and after narrowly missing out on Harry Kane last summer, City are set to make one of the biggest moves of the year to show they mean business.

It is a bummer for Real Madrid, who were considered to be in a great position to sign him as well, and even Barcelona. But it was always going to be difficult to match Manchester City’s financial offers.

However, one positive takeaway for Real Madrid and Barcelona is that the earlier the Norweigian’s feature is sealed, the earlier the La Liga giants can focus on their remaining transfer plans. The two clubs are looking to make strong reinforcements in the summer.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
