Arsene Wenger makes prediction on man city target Erling Haaland

The Frenchman says he can see Haaland being snapped up by an English club due to their financial strength in comparison to a lot of other clubs in Europe at the moment.

Haaland is a world class goal-scorer and would be an ideal signing for these clubs, with City in particular in need of an elite centre-forward after losing the legendary Sergio Aguero this summer.

United have Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani up front, but the ageing duo are surely not particularly long-term options, so signing Haaland makes sense as a priority for the long-term.

The good news for these Manchester clubs is that Wenger seems to believe Haaland will be Premier League-bound, rather than perhaps opting for the Real Madrids and Barcelonas of this world.

Wenger added that he rates Haaland really highly, tipping him to be alongside Kylian Mbappe as the game’s next big star.
