What can we think about the transfer of the most promising young center forward to one of the richest clubs in the world, champion of the richest league in the world? First of all, we can think that Manchester City was one of the few possible destinations for a player like Haaland, maybe the most obvious. Clearly this transfer increases the chances that Manchester City win the next Champions League since they have improved one of the (few) positions in which the quality of their players was very good but not extraordinary. If Haaland confirms the numbers he has had at Borussia Dortmund he is going to score much more than Gabriel Jesus used to.
£85.5M after all the agent fees and signing bonuses (incl. £51M release fee to Dortmund)... relative bargain, I guess, given that PSG just recently had to pay more than this for the privilege of keeping Mbappe?
