The pair devised a points system based on criteria, such as whether the club needed to buy a No 9, their playing style, their history and stadium capacity. Haaland would eventually leave Borussia Dortmund for City.
“On our list, I think City is the best team," Alfie told The Big Decision Haaland documentary.
“[Bayern] Munich is number two. We have Real Madrid as number three, Paris Saint-Germain as number four.
Before Alfie continued, saying: “I think it was one point separating the top two with the last calculations.
“One of the criteria is about whether the club needs a No 9. City is ten [out of ten] in that respect. Bayern Munich gets one point for that, they don't need a No 9.
“They have their best player as a No 9, but if he [Lewandowski] goes, then they have no one else. It would have been quite controversial to go to Munich but when we go through it, it's one of the best teams. Real Madrid are a five or six [out of ten]. They have [Karim] Benzema, and will they get Mbappe?"
