Manchester City could be said to have bagged the bargain of the summer with the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

Triggering the £51million release clause, Erling Haaland is on fire for the Etihad club and is set to buldoze and set new Premier League records with his current form.

In just 13 matches for Manchester City, Erling Haaland has plundered in 20 goals to take the Citizens to second place on the Premier League table and the top spot in their Champions League group.

Haaland became the first Premier League player to score three consecutive hat-tricks in three home matches after he secured a hat-trick in a 6-3 rout of Manchester United at the Etihad.

As it stands, 15 of the goals scored by Erling Haaland are in the top flight, meaning that he is just eight goals away from hitting Mo Salah’s golden boot tally of 23 goals last season.

After the Community Shield flop against Liverpool, Erling Haaland has proven his critics wrong and is redefining the realm of possibilities in the game.

Erling Haaland has thrived and impacted his new club since joining from Borussia Dortmundd, but the Citizens were linked to a move for Harry Kane last year.

The England top star was a prime target for Pep Guardiola, but they were unable to complete a deal for the Spurs forward.

Meanwhile, Premier League icon Alan Shearer has compared Harry Kane to Erling Haaland, saying Kane would have equally match Haaland’s daring goal stats for Manchester City if he had joined Manchester City.

Shearer said: “If Harry was in this City team, he would be scoring as many goals as Erling has. This is dreamland for any top forward. I’ve said it all along – a top goalscorer in this City team should score 40 goals. If Erling stays fit, then he’ll get that and maybe even some more.”

Alan Shearer, a renowned Premier League icon and former Newcastle player, is the Premier League all-time leading top-scorer.

He has 260 Premier League goals followed by Man United legend, Wayne Rooney with 206 goals.

Harry Kane is third on the chart with 191 goals. Alan Shearer was a top striker. As Pep Guardiola confirmed, Shearer can examine forwards and tells the best, since he has been there.

However, pitting Harry Kane against Erling Haaland may be a gross underestimation of Haaland’s exceptional skills and abilities.

Harry Kane is a top and reliable striker, but the Norwegian ace is extraordinary and exceptionally brilliant in the role.

Shearer bases his fact on the strength and quality of City, but Erling Haaland demonstrated what he is made of even before joining Manchester City.

His stats at Salzburg, Borussia Dortmund, and the Norwegian national team speak volumes.

Harry Kane is a top striker in his own right. Just like Sergio Aguero, Robinho, and other Manchester City forwards, Kane would have scored goals for Manchester City if he had joined the club but not at Erling Haaland’s pace.
