Hamann advises Haaland to join Man Utd over Man City
Didi Hamann thinks Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland would suit Man Utd over Man City if he moves to the Premier League this summer.
Haaland has scored 45 goals in 46 appearances for Dortmund since joining from RB Salzburg in January 2020 after bagging 29 in 27 appearances for the Austrian giants.
The Red Devils were interested before his move to the Bundesliga and there are rumours that he could move to the Premier League this summer with Man Utd, City, Chelsea and Liverpool all reportedly interested.

And Hamann thinks United’s counter-attacking style of play will suit Haaland much more than City’s.
“I don’t think Haaland is a Manchester City player. I can’t see him joining Man City and I’m not sure whether City will be interested in him,” Hamann told Stadium Astro.
“Pep [Guardiola] has got rid of some centre-forwards in the past. The way they play, they like to pass the ball around, I’m not sure whether Haaland would suit Man City or fit in there. At Manchester United, they have so many quick players and like to counter-attack, I think Haaland will suit United a lot better than City.
“Can United get him in the summer? I think there might be a situation in the summer if Dortmund miss out on the Champions League, where they might have to sell Haaland and [Jadon] Sancho. I think they could both go in the summer.”
However, fellow pundit Mikael Silvestre doesn’t think Man Utd should be trying to sign a new striker this summer.

Silvestre said: “There’s no secret that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was chasing Haaland. That couldn’t happen so [Edinson] Cavani came.
“He’s a player who I think will stay more than a season because he has great mentality and helps the youngsters a lot.
“So I don’t think Manchester United should be pushing to have a new striker this summer. On the other side, I think Man City need to reinforce that position because Sergio Aguero is not involved and Jesus is not convincing anybody, I don’t see much improvement from him.”
