Erling Halandin is linked to leaving Dortmund this summer. Real Madrid, Barcelona, ​​Manchester United, Chelsea and Manchester City are reportedly interested in signing strikers this summer.

Manchester City will likely be in the market for a top striker ahead of the 2021-22 Premier League season. Argentine striker Sergio Aguero’s contract with Cityzens expires at the end of the current campaign, and the club has not indicated that they will offer him a new contract.

“He is currently one of the best strikers in the world at his age. If we want him in Manchester City? You understand I can’t answer this question. He is a Borussia Dortmund player, so I can’t say anything,” Guardiola said.
