PREMIER - City likely to land Haaland as kit sponsor looks to sign him
Manchester City, according to the Star, is one of the teams in the running to acquire Haaland, with the Premier League winners hoping that a lucrative footwear contract will give them an advantage in the chase.
Puma, City's kit manufacturers, are attempting to entice the deadly forward away from current sponsors Nike with a four-year agreement worth £50 million.
Puma inked a ten-year, £650 million kit contract with the club in 2019, hoping that their 'tight commercial connections' will give them an advantage in the race for Haaland if he decides to strike his own deal with the corporation.
Pep Guardiola's team appear to be on the lookout for a new center-forward after losing out on both Harry Kane and Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer transfer window, as well as seeing a long-serving club hero Sergio Aguero leave for Barcelona at the conclusion of the season.
After joining Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020, the Norwegian youngster is without a doubt the most sought-after prospect in global football right now, having had a productive previous 18 months or so in Germany.
