EPL: Man City will lose one player because Haaland, won’t win everything – Carragher

Former Liverpool defender, Jamie Carragher has claimed Erling Haaland’s arrival at Manchester City means they will lose one creative player.

Carragher also said the Premier League champions will not win everything when Haaland joins ahead of next season.

City on Tuesday, confirmed they have agreed a deal with Borussia Dortmund to sign Haaland.

They will pay the striker’s £51.1m release clause and he will arrive at the Etihad on July 1, subject to terms being finalised.

Haaland is one of the hottest forwards in Europe, having scored 85 goals in 88 games for Dortmund.

But Carragher is keen to see how Haaland and City adapt to one another.

Speaking on Sky Sports, he said: “”He will score goals – that’s what he has been brought in to do, of course he will. But that doesn’t guarantee that City will win everything. They will have to integrate him into the team. That means City will lose a creative player who helps them keep the ball.

“There are lots of questions, including from myself. We will be analysing his performances at City and how he fits in. They had a world-class striker a few years ago in Sergio Aguero and they have another one now.”
