MANCHESTER CITY have stepped up their pursuit of Erling Haaland through an unlikely source with Riyad Mahrez partying with the striker in Mykonos.
‘Agent Mahrez’ appeared to be loving life alongside Haaland as he put in a good word for the Premier League champions.
Haaland missed out on Euro 2020 with Norway failing to qualify but the Borussia Dortmund star appears to be making the most of his holiday time.
The prolific striker is one of the most sought after players in Europe with Man City heavily linked with him.
Sergio Aguero’s departure has left a void to fill and Haaland is one of the club’s main transfer targets.
And Mahrez took to social media to cheekily play his part in trying to persuade Haaland to move to Man City.
Mahrez may have had a quiet word with Haaland during their partying to help promote life in England.
The 20-year-old scored 27 goals in 28 Bundesliga games last season as he continued his remarkable goalscoring record.

And Haaland has the pick of Europe as he decides on his next move after Dortmund.
Man City are likely to face major competition from Chelsea, Manchester United and Real Madrid.
But at least in Mahrez they could have a secret weapon with the Man City playmaker putting in a good word during his summer holiday.
