Borussia Dortmund star and Manchester City target Erling Haaland is 'very likely' to leave the club this summer, according to Spanish newspaper SPORT as relayed by Sport Witness.

This news has emerged from various reports in recent weeks concerning the 20-year-old's price tag.

With it looking ever more likely the striker will leave the club this summer - especially if Borussia Dortmund fail to secure Champions League football for the next season - SPORT believe it will take upwards of €150 million to prize him away from the Bundesliga giants.

This will put Manchester City at a massive 'advantage', according to the report, as they have the funds to secure a high profile move. La Liga sides Barcelona and Real Madrid have also been mentioned, but the latter are reportedly focusing their efforts on signing PSG striker, Kylian Mbappe. 

The Blues are obviously in the market for a high profile striker this summer, with club legend Sergio Agüero looking ever more likely to leave upon the expiry of his current deal.

The reports do say that Erling Haaland's camp are 'gathering' information on the clubs that are interested and will start making 'decisions' in April.
