As mentioned above, there are plenty of possibilities that Haaland will walk away with the Golden Boot next season if he replicates his form at Dortmund when he moves to the blue side of Manchester.
Something that could give Haaland an advantage in the race for the Golden Boot is the fact that Norway failed to qualify for the World Cup in Qatar, potentially meaning that he will be fresh coming into the second half of the season.
City are on course to win four of the last five Premier League titles ahead of Sunday’s title decider against Aston Villa at the Etihad Stadium. If Pep Guardiola’s side were to look weaker next campaign with Haaland in their side it would be a major shock considering that they have played without a striker on a regular basis for two seasons in a row.
The Champions League is a trophy that has eluded City’s grasp in recent seasons, having been beaten finalists in 2020/21 to Chelsea, as well as being knocked out in the semi-finals this campaign to Real Madrid.
It feels like it should be a matter of time before City claim European football’s biggest prize having come so close in recent years. Surely, the signing of Haaland will propel the Sky Blues to win their first-ever Champions League.
