Reports from The Daily Mail’s Jack Gaughan suggest that Manchester City plan to make attempts to sign both Erling Haaland and Jack Grealish, with the two highly touted youngsters topping their transfer wish-list this summer.
The pair would be expected to cost close to £200 million.
However, according to The Telegraph, the Premier League club will prioritise Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland. It is suggested that the club could feel desperate to replace the recently confirmed departure of club legend Sergio Aguero, and the Norwegian international is their number one choice.
Erling Haaland has catapulted himself to the top of the list for most of the big clubs in Europe after scoring 49 goals in 49 games for Borussia Dortmund. Along with Manchester City, the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Chelsea, and Manchester United are all said to be interested in the 20 year-old.
And while the Etihad club are prioritising Haaland, interest in Aston Villa captain Jack Grealish remains.
However, any deal is severely complicated by Aston Villa’s staggering £100 million valuation of their star man.
According to Jack Gaughan of the Mail, interest from Manchester City has 'accelerated' over the past few weeks and there is hope a deal can be struck with Aston Villa despite the Birmingham club having no imperative to sell their captain.
