Manchester City are one of the four English clubs that could afford to sign Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund, according to Fabrizio Romano on the latest episode of the 'Here We Go' podcast.
As revealed by Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, during an exclusive interview with BBC Sport on Tuesday night, there are a 'maximum of 10 clubs' in world football that can afford to buy the Norwegian striker - with four of those from England.
The Borussia Dortmund forward is undoubtedly one of the most in-demand players in the game at present, given his remarkable goalscoring form with the Bundesliga side since making the move from Red Bull Salzburg.
Just this season, Haaland has scored 27 goals in just 25 appearances, registering another seven assists along the way.
And according to Fabrizio Romano on the latest episode of the 'Here We Go' podcast, there are 'huge chances' that the 20-year-old could leave Borussia Dortmund this summer - especially if the Bundesliga side fail to qualify for the Champions League for next season, with Dortmund currently in sixth place.
According to Romano, Manchester City are among the four English clubs, as highlighted by Mino Raiola, that could afford the striker - along with Liverpool, Manchester United, and Chelsea.
However, it is clarified that there is 'nothing advanced' with any club at this moment - which is expected given the focus of Haaland being firmly on rescuing Borussia Dortmund's season.
It is a known fact that Manchester City will be in the market for a top striker this summer, given their struggles in front of goal this season - more prominently shown in the opening four months of the campaign.
With Sergio Aguero's contract coming to an end, the candidates to fill his shoes are becoming more clear, with Erling Haaland being named alongside the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Harry Kane, Lionel Messi, and Darwin Nunez of Benfica.
