Manchester City are prepared to make a bid for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland at the end of the season, according to reports in the English media.
Manager Pep Guardiola is looking to revamp his squad and he is said to have an eye on the Norwegian international, who has scored 17 goals in just 14 appearances so far this campaign.
Manchester United and Real Madrid are also believed to be in the mix for Haaland and supporters on Twitter are excited about the prospect of the 20-year-old moving to the Etihad:

There are some major complications which could scupper the Citizens’ chance of signing Haaland, with one being the striker’s agent, Mino Raiola, who is not on the best of terms with Guardiola.
The pair have history which goes back to Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s time at Barcelona. Whether Haaland’s representative would steer his client away from City, we shall have to wait and see.
