Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been asked to swap Erling Haaland for Juventus’ Dušan Vlahović.

This is the suggestion made by former AC Milan and Napoli goalkeeper Giovanni Galli, and he mentioned this during a chat with Tuttosport.

The Manchester City star scored 36 goals in the league last season, which is one more than the goals scored by the 24-year-old since he joined the Serie A side from Fiorentina in January 2022.

Haaland arrived at the Etihad six months later and has scored 71 goals and registered 14 assists from 76 games for the Premier League winners.

Although his record is far more impressive than the Serbia international, it hasn’t stopped Galli from suggesting the Manchester City manager to consider replacing Vlahović with the Norway international.

Galli made this claim when Tuttosport asked him where can the former Fiorentina man move next and he also explained why Vlahović would excel under Guardiola at the Etihad.

“Maybe it may seem like a provocation to you, but for me it isn’t that much: if I were Guardiola and they told me ‘you have to make the exchange between Vlahović and Haaland’ I would do it easily,” he said.

“Dušan has nothing to envy the Norwegian. At Juve, he must take advantage of the few opportunities that come his way; because the Bianconeri are not a team that doesn’t grind out play like City who have 10 chances per game.”

“Yet Vlahović already has 12 goals despite everything. I’d like to see him in a more attacking team. If he were at Manchester City, he would also score 50 goals a season like Haaland. I’m sure.”

Vlahović has been linked with a move to the Premier League in the past few windows, but there hasn’t been anything concrete about the possibility of joining Manchester City.
