Erling Haaland has special demand for Man City as they look to finalise ‘best proposal’

“I would tell him that this is very big, still, he’s just beginning,” Saviola told Argentine outlet TyC Sports (via Sport Witness).

“The worst thing that can happen to us is rushing it. He has to enjoy himself, to continue doing the games he is doing.
