Guardiola rules Man City out of race for €150M-rated Erling Haaland

# Guardiola rules Man City out of race for €150M-rated Erling Haaland

has admitted that Manchester City can't afford superstar this summer.

“With these prices, we are not going to buy any striker. It is impossible, we cannot afford it,” said Guardiola ahead of Saturday's match against Leicester.

City are looking to replace outgoing striker Sergio Aguero, who's leaving the club after 11 seasons.

What Guardiola said about acquiring Haaland

“I want to be clear, maybe we are going to find a new player to replace him (Aguero) but in terms of numbers [of it is] impossible. In terms of what he means, impossible.

“There are a lot of big chances that maybe we are not going to sign a striker for next season. We have enough players in the first team – and interesting players – with the world economics that we will not sign a striker for next season.”

“With these prices it's impossible – we cannot afford it. That's not going to happen. All the clubs struggle financially and we are not an exception.”

The ‘Haaland Tour' continues

Erling Haaland's father Alf Haaland and agent Mino Raiola held talks with both and Real Madrid yesterday.

The two were seen arriving first at Barcelona's El Pratt airport to kick off negotiations with Barca president Joan Laporta. They left for Barajas Adolfo Suarez in Madrid two hours after.

Now they're in England to meet with Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, and Manchester City today, according to Mundo Deportivo.

Borussia Dortmund have placed an €150M exit price on Erling Haaland, doubling his valuation since last season. Only Europe's biggest clubs can afford talking about the possibility of hiring Raiola's super client.
