Guardiola Hails ‘exceptional’ Haaland Amid Bid Talk

Pep Guardiola praised “exceptional” Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland as he admitted Manchester City could spend the kind of money required to sign a player of his calibre.

City is one of several top clubs linked with a blockbuster move for Haaland in the close-season.

The 20-year-old Norwegian is the talk of Europe after scoring 33 goals in 32 games this season while becoming the youngest player to reach 20 career goals in the Champions League.

Already well aware of Haaland’s quality, City boss Guardiola has a chance to take a closer look when Dortmund visits the Etihad Stadium for the Champions League quarter-final first leg on Tuesday.

“He’s exceptional for his age. The numbers speak for themselves,” Guardiola told reporters on Monday.
