Chelsea legend, Jason Cundy says it will be difficult for teams to stop Man City with the arrival of Erling Haaland.
Pep Guardiola’s side announced during the week that the 21-year-old Norwegian will be replacing Sergio Aguero who left the club last summer.
They have agreed a deal to sign Haaland from Borussia Dortmund. Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona and Real Madrid were said to have shown interest in the young goal machine.
And Cundy is of the opinion that the Norwegian would make Pep Guardiola’s team unstoppable.
“If you had to design a centre forward for the modern game, you are designing him!
“You can’t help but think this is the piece that makes City unstoppable!” He told talkSPORT.
Haaland’s style is typified by his scorching pace, deadly accuracy, and daunting physical prowess.
In all competitions for Dortmund this season (2021-22), the 21-year-old striker has scored 28 goals from 90 shots overall with 53 shots on target. Therefore, over half (52%) of the shots he has attempted this campaign have found the target and over a quarter (27%) have resulted in a goal being scored.
He now has 21 goals in 23 games to his name in the Bundesliga this campaign after having most recently scored a hat trick in Dortmund’s recent 4-3 defeat against Bochum, despite only attempting four shots on goal during the entire game.
Records broken at Dortmund
As well as scoring goals for fun, Haaland has sent a number of records tumbling during his stint at Dortmund, a trend that began the day he made his debut for the club on January 18th, 2020.
The then-19-year-old came off the bench against FC Augsburg with his side trailing 3-1 at the WWK ARENA. He then proceeded to stage a one-man comeback by scoring a hat trick with his first three shots inside the first 23 minutes of his first Bundesliga.
