Man City boss Guardiola coy over Haaland transfer link

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has refused to be drawn to reports linking Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland with the Premier League leaders. 

Haaland is yet to sign a new deal at Dortmund and continues to be linked with a move away from the Bundesliga side with City termed as a possible destination. 

"Since I am here, every month or two months people say we are going to sign 50 players," Guardiola said.

"Right now, listen, it's impossible that I am going to talk about some guy who is not here.

"He's a Dortmund player and we've an incredible run ahead of us. At the end of the season, it is the transfer window and many things are going to happen.

"Maybe I speak about this club needing a striker for the next five, six, seven years maybe once in the last 12 months. I'm not going to be the guy saying we are a success or not a success because we didn't have a striker."

According to The Times, Dortmund expects Haaland to sign a £500k-a-week deal with City.
