On Friday, July 1, the Norwegian officially joined Man City and has committed his future to the Etihad Stadium until 2027.
The 21-year-old is one of the most intriguing talents in international football, having scored 86 goals in 89 games for his former team. Borussia Dortmund’s amazing numbers have FPL managers drooling at the thought of bringing Haaland into their squads ahead of the forthcoming season.
And, before of the complete revelation next week, the costs of our new signing and eleven other members of Pep Guardiola’s side have been revealed.
Premier League managers must choose a 15-man roster from a £100 million transfer budget.
However, to make those selection decisions all the more difficult, just three players can be selected from each Premier League club.
Haaland will cost £11.5 million, making him City’s second-most expensive player behind Kevin De Bruyne, whose finest Premier League goalscoring season has earned him a starting price of £12.0 million.
Joao Cancelo’s remarkable season, in which he finished with 201 points, has valued him at £7.0m, the same as Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva.
Fellow defenders Kyle Walker and Ruben Dias will cost £5.0m and £6.0m, respectively, while Ilkay Gundogan, our hero from the last day of the 2021/22 season, will cost £7.5m.
Following another productive season, Phil Foden has been valued at £8.0 million, with City’s best scorer in all competitions, Riyad Mahrez.
Finally, Raheem Sterling’s £10.0m price tag places him third on City’s list of most expensive players, trailing only De Bruyne and Haaland.
Next week, the entire FPL pricing list for the 2022/23 season will be released. Keep an eye on mancity.com and the official Man City app to find out more.
Haaland has decided on Man City shirt number
Both Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez have chosen their Manchester City shirt numbers ahead of the upcoming season, according to City Xtra.
The pair is nearing their long-awaited arrival to the City Football Academy, where they will begin working with their new teammates before the start of the 2022/23 season.
While Erling Haaland is presently enjoying the Marbella sunshine during his much-needed summer vacation, Julian Alvarez is still on loan with River Plate.
Both men are anticipated to report for pre-season training at Manchester City on or around July 11th, with several players already arriving in England ahead of schedule.
Sources tell City Xtra that Haaland has chosen and will become the club’s new number ‘9,’ inheriting the shirt from the departing Gabriel Jesus.
