Manchester City have identify their problem and then find solution to it with the signing of Erling Haaland.

Manchester City have confirmed the signing of one of the best strikers in the world Erling Haaland from German club Borussia Dortmund.

The Norwegian was chased by several clubs in Europe including Real Madrid and Manchester United.

The prolific striker joined Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in 2019 after an incredible performance in the Champions League.

Haaland represented Norway at various youth levels. In the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, he won the tournament’s Golden Boot, after scoring a record nine goals in a single match.

Haaland signed with Austrian Bundesliga side Red Bull Salzburg in January 2019, winning two league titles and one Austrian Cup. In December 2019, he moved to Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, with whom he won a DFB-Pokal in 2020–21.

Haaland scored 29 goals for Red Bull Salzburg when he was at the Austria club with 28 of these coming in only 22 appearances made during the 2019–20 season.

While he also scored 85 times for  Dortmund in just 88 games (a precise ratio of 0.96 goals per game) including 61 goals in 66 Bundesliga games, 15 goals in 13 Champions League matches, eight goals in seven DFB Pokal games, and one goal in two German Supercup appearances.

Manchester City on the other hand have suffered the impact of a main striker after the departure of Kun Aguero.

Gabriel Jesus was tipped to replace the Argentine in the team but failed to perform up to standard of Pep Guardiola.

Lack of a main striker to convert goal scoring chance for the team cost them their chance to qualify for the final in the Champions League against Real Madrid.

Manchester City do not have lots of problem in the Premier League but need to fix their issues of lifting the Champions League.

With Erling Haaland goal scoring ability and being a dangerous player and also nightmare for defenders this have proven to be a good signing for the Etihad side.

Pep Guardiola side have made the perfect signing and that will take them a long way in their next season Champions League campaign.
