Arsenal may well be in the lead after 17 games, but City are not giving up anytime soon, even if they did lose points to Everton at home the last time out. On New Year’s Eve, Erling Haaland scored his 21st league goal of the year, and the vicious Norwegian is now aiming for the golden boot.

Erling Haaland always seemed to be on the verge of moving to England, and Manchester City won that specific transfer lottery in 2022. The prolific Norwegian, whose track record suggests he will send rival defenders fleeing for cover, maybe the season’s best deal at £51 million.

Stats: City’s all-time top-scorers: Can Haaland get ahead of Aguero?

Since Abu Dhabi United Group purchased Manchester City in 2008, there have been many reasons for fans with Manchester City tickets to rejoice. Sergio Aguero frequently played a crucial role in these happy occasions.

The Argentine had an exceptionally successful time at the Etihad, netting 260 goals in a career that spanned a decade. He is regarded as one of his generation’s best and deadliest strikers.

The last-second goal he scored against QPR to steal the Premier League title away from City’s bitter rivals, Manchester United, will always hold a special place in City supporters’ hearts.

Eric Brook is the second-highest goal scorer for City, with 177 goals in 494 games.

Brook, an unconventional left-winger, was the team’s primary scorer for a considerable amount of time and was instrumental in helping City become promoted in 1928. Brook was a key player for Man City and scored double-digit goals in 11 straight seasons.

Tommy Johnson is the third member on the famous list of goal scorers. The former England international now holds the record for most goals scored per season for Manchester City. His thundering left-footed strikes were renowned, and in 1927 he led the Citizens to victory in the second division.

Raheem Sterling, an English winger who transferred from Liverpool to Manchester in 2015 and scored 131 goals for his team, is also included on the list.

The attacker helped Manchester City reach incredible heights in the past ten years by winning ten titles in seven seasons while he was at the club, including four Premier League championships.

If you are one with Manchester City tickets, the only two active City players on the list are Riyad Mahrez and Kevin De Bruyne. Still, it seems inevitable that Erling Haaland will break into the top 20 sooner rather than later, given his strong start to life at the Etihad.

Transfer watch

At least for this winter window, the story surrounding Bernardo Silva and Barcelona is officially closed for any hopeful with Manchester City tickets. The player won’t join the Catalan club and will remain with Manchester City until the end of the campaign. A significant roadblock in Barcelona’s pursuit of Bernardo Silva was always the asking price.

Finding the money for Bernardo Silva was always going to be difficult because the price tag of €80 million is enormous, and the indebted Barcelona team was already spending a lot of money on other players.

In an interview with Cadena Ser on Wednesday, Barcelona president Joan Laporta was asked about the potential acquisition of Silva from Manchester City. It’s realistic to assume that he recoiled at the high price and ruled out moving Silva during this winter transfer window.

Morgan Rogers, a winger for England’s Under-20 team, has been loaned out by Manchester City to Championship team Blackpool for the remainder of the season, reuniting him with his previous manager Michael Appleton in the process.

The 20-year-old winger had a brief stint at Lincoln under manager Appleton in the first half of 2021, during which he scored six goals in 28 games. He is now ready to get experience playing in the Championship for the Seasiders.

A West Ham club insider claims that Manchester City could acquire Declan Rice in exchange for Kalvin Phillips.

West Ham will attempt to recruit out-of-favour City midfielder Kalvin Phillips in exchange for the West Ham captain, as they are aware that Rice’s departure at the end of the season is imminent.

The out-of-favour midfielder Kalvin Phillips will stay with the defending Premier League winners Manchester City, according to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano’s special CaughtOffside piece.

Due to rumours that he would move to West Ham United, the English midfielder has yet to play much under Pep Guardiola.

Romano has stated that the former Leeds player may have more opportunities to show off his talent in the second half of a busy season. Due to the team’s composition and Phillip’s fitness, he needs to receive more playing time.

According to Romano, “Manchester City have no plans to change the present squad; therefore, as of right now, I don’t see Kalvin Phillips going.

He wasn’t playing because he was injured and out of shape, but Pep Guardiola will aim to give him more playing time later in the season.

 In a worrying piece of development for those with Manchester City tickets, Erling Haaland, the top striker for Manchester City, is someone Real Madrid is reportedly interested in signing in 2024.

Pep Guardiola would worry about losing his best forward to Real Madrid, who has a more extensive collection of European trophies than City.

Although Haaland’s clause requires Los Blancos to pay €150 million for the Norwegian striker, given his form, no team would object to producing such a high sum.

Ansu Fati, the star recruit from Barcelona’s youth, is the goal of Guardiola’s City. According to sources in the TodoFichajes Calciomercato Web, Man City is interested in the Spaniard born in 2002 and expects to pay roughly 70 million euros for him.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Manchester City has reached an agreement with Argentine sensation Maximo Perrone. The transfer expert claimed that the two parties had a verbal agreement in place.

Along with taxes, the Sky Blues will pay $8 million for Perrone’s signature.

According to Defensa Central, Manchester City may move for Real Madrid left-back Ferland Mendy in the current transfer season.

According to reports, Real Madrid is trying to make room for RB Leipzig defender Joko Gvardiol and is no longer interested in Mendy. Pep Guardiola wants the French defender to provide his full-back positions more depth.

French defender, Rayan Ait-Nouri of Wolves, is a target for Manchester City as they search for options at left-back. The 21-year-development old’s is being watched by Manchester City, and Pep is reportedly a fan of the full-back, according to reports in the Calciomercatoweb.

Not so surprisingly, Manchester City attracts more visitors than it used to every year. With Manchester City tickets being in demand all throughout, official retail sites might not be your go-to option when it comes to access. Trusted reseller sites can help you source Manchester City tickets providing proper value for your money.
