Guardiola responds to claims Haaland is unhappy at Manchester City amid Real Madrid links

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has reacted to reports from Spanish media that Erling Haaland is unhappy at the club.

There have been reports in Spain which have suggested Erling Haaland wants to join Real Madrid he dislikes Manchester and the weather in the city.

In his news conference on Friday, Guardiola dismissed these reports and insists Haaland is not looking to leave.

“I don’t know, you have to ask the media from Madrid,” Guardiola said.

“Maybe they have more info than we have. We don’t have that feeling that he’s unhappy. He was [unhappy] because he could not play for two months because he was injured but maybe the media from Spain, and especially Madrid, have more information than us.

The 23-year-old Haaland missed 10 consecutive Man City matches, but he already has scored 19 goals in all competitions. Haaland scored 52 goals last season and has a contract until 2027.

Guardiola added: “He played 25 minutes and every transition, every pass, all the players look at him. I know how important he is for us.

We try for all the strikers to be happy, especially him, and it will depend how we play. If we play quite comfortable and good, he will get a lot of balls.

“This is what we want and after that he will do the rest.”

Man City head coach also confirmed that Haaland is ready to start against Brentford on Monday night.

Guardiola said: “Yes, he’s ready.

“Everyone is ready right now because they are not injured as much. If they are on the bench, they are ready.”
