Klopp: Man City signing Haaland would ‘set new levels’

According to Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp, Manchester City’s reportedly imminent capture of Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland will “set new levels”.

Pep Guardiola’s City and Klopp’s Reds had emerged as the dominant forces in the Premier League since the 2018-19 season, when they finished on 98 and 97 points, respectively, in an enthralling battle for the top spot, with each team winning one league title apiece since City’s triumph that year.

Their rivalry has been stepped up again this season, with City currently three points clear at the top of the league with just three games remaining.

Meanwhile, Liverpool remains in the hunt for a remarkable quadruple after winning the EFL Cup.

They reached the Champions League final and eliminated City in the FA Cup’s last four to reach the showpiece.

However, City look set to bolster their ranks with the significant signing of Haaland, who has scored 21 goals and provided seven assists in just 23 Bundesliga appearances this season, averaging a goal every 86.9 minutes.

With reports suggesting City could announce the signing of the Norway international before the end of this season, Klopp says Haaland’s arrival could push City to new heights.

Klopp told Sky Sports:

“I signed a new contract knowing City will not stop developing, so it’s not about City to define.

“If we can be happy or not, it’s about us and what we can make of it.

“You have so many opportunities and different ways to win a football game. We have to find just one.

“It’s possible, and you can do that. We can face City in two or three cup competitions.

“In the Champions League or whatever, in finals a year maybe, all the rest we play against the other teams.

“Yes, if Erling Haaland goes there, it will not weaken them. I think it’s been spoken about enough, this transfer.

“I know there are a lot of talks at the moment, and people talk about money.

“But this transfer will set new levels. Let me say it like this.”

Despite often playing without a recognised striker, Guardiola’s team have netted more goals (89).

The 21-year-old forward will undoubtedly be thrilled by the prospect of featuring in a City team that has created 112 big chances in 35 league outings this term.
