Pep Guardiola hits back at Spanish media reports concerning Erling Haaland’s Man City future



| Last Updated:


The future of Erling Haaland has this week been reported once again in Spanish media, giving Pep Guardiola the opportunity on Friday to hit back at claims.

It was reported this week that Real Madrid may have fresh hope over the signing of the Norway international striker given how unhappy he is with life in Manchester, and specifically the rainy climate in England.

Such is Haaland’s supposed unhappiness in Manchester that it is the sole reason as to why the 23-year-old forward spends so much time in the Spanish resort of Marbella, according to claims from the report.

However, such suggestions have been immediately shut down by someone close to Haaland – Pep Guardiola.

Speaking to the media on Friday afternoon, the subject of Spanish media reports was put to the Manchester City manager, amid claims of Erling Haaland supposedly becoming unhappy with the climate in the north-west city.

“We don’t have the feeling he is unhappy,” Pep Guardiola insisted when responding to the claims.

“Maybe the media in Spain, especially Madrid, has more information than us.”

Erling Haaland and his Manchester City teammates will be forced to embrace the gloomy conditions of England once again this week as they travel to Brentford in their first of seven matches across all competitions this month.

February will also welcome back the UEFA Champions League to Manchester City’s agenda, as they travel to face FC Copenhagen in the first-leg of their last-16 tie, while Luton Town awaits in the fifth round of the FA Cup away from home.
