Manchester City players had moments of happiness as the Club was told the world that Erling Haaland was theirs for £51million.
Barcelona were close to signing the Dortmund star but the financial crisis dealing with the club will not permit them to cash in on the prolific player.
There will be time for all that, time to explain to some where exactly a pure goal machine fits into a City team that creates dozens of opportunities every week. Rocket science that is not.
He’ll probably be able to play alongside Kevin De Bruyne, you know. And De Bruyne offered more than a nod to Haaland here. Not the 24-minute hat-trick, more the gesture when completing said feat.
De Bruyne sauntered off towards the Norway flags in City’s away end at Molineux, pretending to meditate just as next year’s No 9 does upon testing the durability of any given net.
What all this means for the man possessing the actual No 9 shirt, Gabriel Jesus, these feel like his final weeks at the club.
The Brazilian’s agent confirmed on Wednesday that they had spoken to Arsenal, adding that six others are also keen.
