Manchester City want to replace Sergio Aguero with Erling Haaland

Manchester City have identified Erling Haaland as their priority target to replace Sergio Aguero in the summer transfer window and remain interested in Lionel Messi, according to sources close to Man City Central.

With 180 goals for Manchester City, Aguero is ranked fourth in the all-time Premier League goalscoring charts behind Andy Cole (187), Wayne Rooney (208) and, of course, Alan Shearer (260).

His luck with injuries has been dire over the years and, according to Transfermarkt, the 32-year-old has missed 161 days through injury since the start of last season.

Without Aguero leading the line this season, City have scored just 19 goals in 12 games. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY STADIUM ASTRO.

Pep Guardiola wants to add Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland to his side and, according to Man City Central sources, the Norwegian hitman is the club’s priority target ahead of the 2021 summer transfer window.

Lionel Messi is also a target but while he looked to force a move through in the summer window that just passed, his future is still unclear.

Dortmund are reluctant to sell in the summer but a large offer from the Etihad will likely be enough to convince the Bundesliga outfit to sell.

City need a clinical finisher because, for all their hard work and ability on the ball, Gabriel Jesus and Raheem Sterling are far from elite finishers.

Haaland has 33 goals and 6 assists in 32 games since signing for Borussia Dortmund. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED BY GOAL.

Manchester City are 8 points behind Premier League champions and 20/21 table-toppers Liverpool purely due to the number of goals the Reds have scored – the Anfield side has scored 36 goals in 14 games this season and with +17, they have the best goal difference in the division.

Guardiola’s side has the best defensive record in the league with just 12 goals conceded but they simply aren’t scoring enough.
