Man City ‘agree’ four exits to fund Erling Haaland transfer amid Man Utd link

Manchester City and Manchester United have been linked with a transfer move for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

Manchester City are enjoying a stellar campaign, though it is still glaringly obvious their need for a striker following Sergio Aguero’s departure.

Pep Guardiola failed in his attempt to secure a deal for Tottenham forward Harry Kane over the summer and has since been left with only Gabriel Jesus up top.

However, it appears City have now moved on from Kane and are looking increasingly likely to make a move for Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.

The 21-year-old would be significantly cheaper than Kane would have cost them as his contract reportedly includes a £75 million release clause - and he is also seven years his junior.

However, after City previously splashed out £100 million on Jack Grealish in August, the current league champions are going to have to sell some players to fund a move for the Norwegian.

According to Manchester Evening News, City have already agreed four deals which will help them afford a summer transfer for Haaland.

Who will depart the Etihad Stadium?

ManchesterWorld understands that City have already agreed a deal that will see Ferran Torres head to Barcelona in January for a £46.7 million fee - a hefty amount to go towards Haaland’s price tag.

Meanwhile, Pedro Porro is currently on loan with Sporting Lisbon and the Portuguese club have an option to buy for around £8 million at the end of the season.

If Sporting weren’t to take up the offer then there has also been interest from Real Madrid in the Spaniard.

Elsewhere, Schalke also have the option to buy Japan international Ko Itakura permanently for £5 million, while 19-year-old Morgan Rogers could see his loan at Bournemouth made permanent if the Cherries pay £9 million for his services.

If City are able to offload the four players mentioned then they could make close to £70 million - covering a majority of the release clause needed to prise Haaland away from Germany.

These developments come amid continued links between Haaland and City’s rivals Man Utd.

Marca, however, have reported that Haaland is in the process of receiving a new contract offer from Dortmund as the Germans aim to fend off interest in the striker.
