PSG Linked With EPL’s Top Scorer As They Look For More Reinforcements In Bid For Champions League Glory
Written by Olaleye Oluwadamilola
Ligue 1 giants, Paris Saint-Germain have been linked with a shock move for English Premier League top scorer, Erling Haaland as they look to bring in more reinforcements to the injury hit team ahead of next season for Champions league glory.
PSG have been so unlucky in recent times in the only elusive trophy in their cabinet with frequent exits in the round 16 of the UEFA champions league with their recent heartbreak just last week against Bavarian side Bayern Munich losing both ties by a 3-0 aggregate.
They have made it to the final once and then lost 1-0 against Bayern Munich who was then coached by now Germany’s manger Hansi Flick under previous manager Thomas Tuchel who went on to win the UCL the following year with London side, Chelsea.
Ahead of the new season, the Qatari owned club have now added Manchester City’s talisman, Haaland to their list of transfer targets in a deal worth a whooping £175m as they savor a partnership with the Norwegian and France international whose contract runs up at the end of the season.

Arousing fresh questions and doubts over the entire project, PSG’s elimination has sparked fresh questions about whether the Qatari takeover can, so far, be considered a success.
The ten times league one winner are planning an astonishing £175m for Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, it has been reported as culled from Dailymail UK.
According to French reporter Daniel Riolo, the Parisian club are exploring the options of pairing Haaland with Kylian Mbappe.
Haaland is enjoying a remarkable season in a City shirt, having scored 28 times in the Premier League alone.

It has been suggested that Neymar and Lionel Messi, 31 and 35 respectively, could be moved on this summer, which would open up space on the club’s already-burgeoning wage bill for the Norwegian.
Whether or not it is an attractive proposition to Haaland remains to be seen, though it is telling in recent weeks that there have been noises suggesting the Norwegian might not remain in the north west of England for much longer.
Rafaela Pimenta, Haaland’s agent, spoke to a conference last month in which she detailed how Spanish clubs were often the dream for a player.
The Brazilian lawyer who took over as Haaland’s lead agent after the death of Mino Raiola last year, also stated that she likes to map out players careers. Confirming that Haaland was keen to move to City and work with Pep Guardiola, and that the Premier League is now an attraction on it’s own rather than the clubs that compete in it.
‘In my agency we try to make a plan. We have to make a plan,’ Pimenta told the Financial Times’ Business of Football summit in London.
