Spanish outlet Nacional have claimed the forward is “already questioning whether he made the best possible decision by going to the Etihad Stadium,” while in a separate report, they’ve claimed his relationship with Pep Guardiola is “starting to crack,” as the pair have a “very distant relationship”.
Ex-City star Dietmar Hamann has even told talkSPORT that he doesn’t believe Guardiola ever wanted to sign the Scandi goal god, claiming, “I never thought he was going to go to City because he’s a player Guardiola never wanted.”
Despite the rumours of discontent, coupled with the rumours that Bernardo Silva could well leave City in the coming months, there isn’t too much to suggest that Haaland is unhappy – and with The Athletic stating City believe they have the Premier League’s investigation under control, it is unlikely that Haaland is worried even to want to leave over something that might not be an issue for months to come – if at all, if his employers are to be believed.
Haaland claimed upon signing for City that he was there “to learn” and still just 22, any reports of discontent should be expected from Spanish outlets, given that both Real Madrid and Barcelona covet the striker.
After Manchester City were charged with breaking financial rules by the Premier League, one former financial advisor to City has claimed that the club must be relegated from division, if the allegations are found to be true.
