Manchester City manager, Pep Guardiola, says Erling Haaland’s arrival at the Etihad will make the English champions more ruthless in attack after seeing his side thrash Wolves 5-1 on Wednesday.

Haaland’s £51 million ($63 million) signing ends Man City’s search for a prolific striker to replace Sergio Aguero that left last season.

Haaland will earn £375,000/week, the same as what Kelvin de Bruyne is earning.

However, there was little need for a forward at Molineux as Kevin De Bruyne scored four goals, including a hat-trick inside 24 minutes.

Raheem Sterling rounded off the scoring as City took their tally in the last five Premier League games to 22 goals.

Guardiola was not satisfied by several missed chances with goal difference, potentially still a decisive factor in the title race.

Man City are three points clear of Liverpool at the top of the table and seven goals better off with two games to go.

“He could help us score more,” said Guardiola when asked how many his side would have scored with Haaland upfront.

“Big congratulations to the club. It is a signing for the next years. We are very pleased he decided to come to join us.

“Next season we will work together, we will help him to settle quickly in Manchester. I’m sure he is going to adapt quickly to the way we want to play.”
