Here are your Manchester City evening headlines for Friday, June 3.
De Bruyne makes prediction about Haaland’s first season at Man City
Kevin De Bruyne is backing Erling Haaland to have a positive impact at City ahead of his big-money arrival from Borussia Dortmund.
Last month, City announced that they had reached an agreement with the German heavyweights to sign Haaland. It is understood that he will join the club when the transfer window officially opens later this month in a deal worth £51million.
The Norwegian is considered one of the hottest properties in world football after a blistering two-and-a-half-year period at Dortmund, following his move from Red Bull Salzburg in December 2019. He scored a staggering 86 goals in 89 appearances for the German outfit, and City were desperate to snap him up.
Bernardo agrees with De Bruyne about player problem
Midfielder Bernardo Silva has joined City teammate De Bruyne in criticising the number of matches that players are being forced to participate in.
The City ace made the admission following Portugal’s 1-1 draw against Spain in the first outing of their UEFA Nations League campaign in Seville on Thursday night. Bernardo played the full 90 minutes, meaning he has now made 58 appearances for club and country this season.
As the World Cup in Qatar will take centre stage in November and December later this year, the international fixture calendar has been impacted, with most European nations having to fulfil four Nations League fixtures between now and the middle of June.
