Arsene Wenger predicts Erling Haaland’s club for next season, The Frenchman
believes the Norwegian will be snapped up by an English club due to their financial
strength in comparison to a lot of other clubs in Europe at the moment.
This could be good news for the likes of Manchester United, who have been linked
with Haaland by ESPN, and Manchester City, who have been linked with the striker.
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 center-forward after losing the legendary
Sergio Aguero this summer.
United have Cristiano Ronaldo and Edinson Cavani upfront, 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.
“I think that will happen. The economic power of the Premier League is too strong,”
Wenger told Bild Live, as translated by Goal.
English football is dominant because it is where the most money is. The best players
always go the best way to make the most money.”
Wenger added that he rates Haaland really highly, tipping him to be alongside Kylian
Mbappe as the game’s next big star.
Haaland is likely to be the next high-profile goalscorer after Mbappe. He’s a super
talent,” the former Gunners boss added.
“His ambition, his will to score goals, and the ability to fight in a duel [set him apart].
He’s there and wants to win, there is something in him that is great for a striker.”
