Speaking recently, as relayed by AS, Falk said that a brief stop at Manchester City could work for all parties involved.

“Sources in the Dortmund dressing room have told me that Haaland’s dream remains to sign for Real Madrid. He wants to go to Madrid, but for now, that door is closed to him. Mbappe is on the verge of joining, and Benzema is in the best form of his career, which has led Haaland to consider making an intermediate stop at City. He is a very young player who can gain more experience there and spend a year learning under Pep Guardiola,” said Falk.

He continued:

“I have been told that nothing has been signed because of the inflated demands of his agent Raiola. His father also wants his slice of the pie, €30 million for him and €40m for Raiola. That aspect still needs to be hammered out. But they, as much as Dortmund, are convinced it will be sorted."
