Haaland, meanwhile, has of course been an absolute goal machine in recent times, and few were surprised to see him shine for Manchester City last season.

So, who are the decision-makers at the club? Who are the people who are not signing the cheques for these guys, especially when we’re bringing in other players for these ridiculous fees?

“Why are we not going the extra mile to sign these guys? We keep being linked with them, you know, you hear about Rice, you hear about Jude Bellingham, you hear about Erling Haaland… so why aren’t we getting these players? Especially when we’re…
