Manchester City’s hunt for Sergio Aguero’s replacement at the club continues as Pep Guardiola’s side has been linked with the likes of Harry Kane, Romelu Lukaku, and Erling Haaland.
With Kane set to cost around £150 million for the Premier League champions, it is unlikely that the Sky Blues would spend so much on the English striker, given that he has battled recurrent ankle injuries in the last two years. Having said that, Dortmund are not said to be open to selling Erling Haaland this summer as Jadon Sancho seems to be on his way out to join rivals Manchester United.

It was always understood that in the event Sancho would leave Dortmund, the former Bundesliga champions would not part ways with their other prized asset in Erling Haaland in the same window.
That leaves us with the former Manchester United and Chelsea striker in Romelu Lukaku who is currently in the form of his life and has been that way ever since he made the switch to Inter Milan.
This season, the Belgian striker amassed 30 goals from 44 appearances, helping Inter to their first-ever scudetto in a decade. Having said that, the 28-year-old has carried his form into the ongoing Euro 2020 as well, helping Belgium qualify for the RO16.
Former Manchester City player, Trevor Sinclair on Twitter asked Lukaku if he would favor a move to Manchester City and the 28-year-old’s reply more or less sums up his stance on the numerous reports and rumors linking him with a switch to the Etihad Stadium.
Here’s the tweet.
"“Fancy the blue half of Manchester Rom?”, asked Sinclair“I am happy at inter”, replied Romelu Lukaku with an emoji.Source: Twitter"
It is clear that Lukaku has assumed a very important role at Inter Milan and the 28-yea-old has played some of his best football in Italy after two failed stints at Old Trafford and Stamford Bridge.
What this means is that City’s search for Aguero’s perfect replacement has not reached a conclusion yet and it remains to be seen who the Premier League champions turn to.
