Manchester United are considered a better fit for Erling Haaland than Manchester City, where Pep Guardiola would prefer to sign a striker who suits his system.

That’s according to journalist Christian Falk, who provides an update on Haaland’s future today amid rumours regarding a move to Manchester.

As you’ll be aware, Haaland is set to be one of the major players in the summer transfer window, with a release clause valued at somewhere between €75m and €100m, coming into effect next summer.

That’s a price that all of the major clubs in Europe are willing to pay for him, with Haaland now well established as not only one of the best strikers in Europe but a player who could dominate football for the next decade or more.

Manchester United and Manchester City have both been named as suitors, with reports in Germany recently claiming that the former may have the upper hand thanks to their manager Ralf Rangnick.

He has a relationship with the Haaland family and could use that to bring the striker to Old Trafford, although Manchester City is always a tempting prospect.

Either way, both sides are in the running, but for Falk, there is one reason why Haaland may end up on the red side of the city.

“You have to say that Manchester United are following developments themselves, including the topic of Haaland,” he told BILD.

“I’ve been talking about City for a while now, and of course, Haaland’s name is always on the agenda.

“You have to be honest, though, with Pep Guardiola and Haaland, I don’t think he really wants this striker if he can get another one because the system of play is designed differently.

“At United, Haaland fits like a glove, as our experts have said. Everything fits United perfectly.”
