Man City receives an audacious loan bid for Erling Haaland from a seventh-tier English team as club issue a statement

Man City receives an audacious loan bid for Erling Haaland from a seventh-tier English team as club issue a statement

The Norwegian has been granted the option to stay in shape while his club teammates are away at the World Cup.

Erling Haaland, a striker for Manchester City, has received an ambitious loan offer from Ashton United, an English seventh-tier team.

The club has requested the 22-year-old Norwegian forward to join them for 28 days as he awaits the return of his teammates from the World Cup in Qatar.

Up to 16 Manchester City players will compete in the 2017 World Cup. However, Haaland will not be participating because his native Norway failed to qualify. 

While it is somewhat regrettable that one of the world’s most dazzling talents will be absent from the largest global competition, one club hopes to capitalize on the circumstance and gain an advantage.

The former Borussia Dortmund star has now scored 18 goals in the Premier League since his arrival this summer, putting him in position to win the Golden Boot.

Despite the fact that the City forward will be out for a long, Ashton United is eager to sign him in the interim. 

The team, which competes in the Northern Premier League Premier Division, the seventh division of English football, claims that the relocation “makes perfect sense” because their home stadium, the Hurst Cross Stadium, is only 6.5 miles from the Etihad. Therefore, the forward would not have to travel far to games.

The club has issued the following official statement. “Ashton United can confirm that the club has submitted a 28-day loan approach for Manchester City striker Erling Haaland.

“With the current Premier League champions not in action until late December due to the 2022 FIFA World Cup, The Robins have reached out to our neighbours at the Ethiad in order to keep Haaland’s match fitness with him not being involved in Qatar.”

Club manager Michael Clegg also said: “It just makes sense.

“City aren’t playing, and we want to help by keeping Erling fit, it makes more sense than him playing golf for six weeks. “We think he will be a great fit for us,and would slot in with our squad dynamic really well.”

According to the statement, Manchester City has not yet provided a response.

Pep Guardiola has revealed that Haaland is expected to move to Marbella, making the move doubtful.

The Norwegian apparently owns a home in southern Spain and is looking forward to some alone time before the Premier League season returns in late December.
