Man City are well on their way to another Premier League title, but they’re doing it without a true No. 9. That’s exactly why the champions are so heavily linked to Borussia Dortmund talisman Erling Haaland, who is widely expected to leave Germany this summer.

While Real Madrid, Barcelona, and just about every other European giant are interested in the Norwegian, The Citizens are leading the race because of their relationship with his father, Alf Inge Haaland, who played at Man City for three seasons. He’s reportedly telling his son to sign with Pep Guardiola’s side, according to Football Insider.
