Manchester City currently lack a proper number nine and the former Premier League champions have been heavily linked with Erling Haaland and Harry Kane in the recent past.
Having said that, both Kane and Haaland are expected to cost around £150 million and upwards. With the current financial situation of football clubs all across the world due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it is almost foolish to think that any club would be willing to go that far.

Manchester City would probably want to wait out for the end of the next season as Haaland’s release clause would be activated then. The asking fee for the 20-year-old would be straight down to £75 million then.
Meanwhile, the Cityzens are rumored to be exploring another attractive option as the former Premier League champions are said to be leading the transfer race for RCD Espanyol’s Mateo Fernandez, as per the Sun.
Mateo Fernandez,17, is a striker who has said to be physically strong and technically gifted. With Sergio Aguero set to leave the club after a decade this summer, Fernandez could eventually take over the goal-scoring reins.
Sergio Aguero is arguably Manchester City’s most successful player and their most prolific goal-scorer. The 32-year-old will go down as a club legend by all means and is likely to enter the Premier League Hall of Fame as well.
Gabriel Jesus was brought to City in 2017 with the view that he would be the one to take over the goal-scoring duties from the Argentine but the Brazilian hasn’t proved himself in the big games this season despite getting ample opportunities. Moreover, with City rumored to be planning to offload Raheem Sterling, it can be assumed that the think-tank at the Etihad Stadium is looking for ways to fund a big-money transfer.
Who do you think should be the long-term successor of Sergio Aguero at the club? Let us know.
