6:33 pm
millions of gamers around the world, what now for the fifa franchise? good evening, we'll get the latest from villa park in a moment, where liverpool are trying to keep themselves in the title race tonight, but let's start with the league leaders manchester city and that big transfer news. barring any issues with personal terms, they have landed one of the world's top strikers. the 2! year old norwegian erling haaland, who has lit up the german bundesliga for the past 2 seasons, willjoin the club at the beginning ofjuly. here's our sport correspondent nesta macgregor. speed, strength, control and
6:34 pm
clinical in front of gold. manchester city have acquired the services of one of the brightest talents in world football. born into a footballing family, his dad played for leeds and manchester city in fact, haaland was born in yorkshire munich he could've played for england. his career has made stops in norway and austria the 21—year—old spent the last three years playing for dortmund in the german bundesliga. a look at his schools to game ratio, it looks more like a computer game the top level football. , , ., u, like a computer game the top level football. , , ., u, ., football. they used to call him a machine and _ football. they used to call him a machine and i _ football. they used to call him a machine and i don't _ football. they used to call him a machine and i don't think - football. they used to call him a machine and i don't think you i football. they used to call him a - machine and i don't think you should call them and being a machine but he is as close as you get. haaland with the way that he is tall and i should express type make a match in a viking coming into this years ago but he is peaceful, score schools, he is strong in his abilities are
6:35 pm
great, he is a great go—getter. lifting the premier league trophy is the theme familiar sight but so was the theme familiar sight but so was the exits from the champions league this season just seconds away from reaching the final erling haaland has passed every test of his football career with flying colours, now in the bloom of manchester city, he would no doubt face the toughest yet. let's cross live to the etihad stadium and speak to nesta now, nesta, he has been brilliant for dortmund, become something of a cult figure there, this should be great for city and the premier league. there's no doubt that manchester city have a very special player on their hands in the premier league probably has one of the new faces of world football now that cristiano rinaldo.
6:36 pm
erling haaland has in principle, we have been told, signed a five—year deal with thousands of pounds a week in those deals are sure to be agreed and so the stadium will be his new home and i've spoken to a few fans, not very scientific but i hundred percent of them are very happy with this. manchester city of score the most schools the season and you think they don't need to score any more but that's exactly what they're getting in germany, he's been there for three seasons, coming split 66 games he scored 6! goals. no doubt they would a flood of competition from some of the biggest clubs in europe to get their man. the? from some of the biggest clubs in europe to get their man. they had the ick europe to get their man. they had the pick of — europe to get their man. they had the pick of any _ europe to get their man. they had the pick of any cloud _ europe to get their man. they had the pick of any cloud for _ europe to get their man. they had the pick of any cloud for the - europe to get their man. they had the pick of any cloud for the last i the pick of any cloud for the last 12 months and it was going to spank the two there and barcelona says they have onlyjustjoined city for they have onlyjustjoined city for the money. you mentioned his wages that he will be getting but also,
6:37 pm
that he will be getting but also, that family, that emotional pull that family, that emotional pull that he does have, you mentioned that he does have, you mentioned that in your report.— that in your report. yes, sure for £2000 a week— that in your report. yes, sure for £2000 a week doesn't _ that in your report. yes, sure for £2000 a week doesn't hurt - that in your report. yes, sure for £2000 a week doesn't hurt in i that in your report. yes, sure for- £2000 a week doesn't hurt in making that decision. but this is a homecoming for erling haaland because his father played for leeds united and also played for manchester city. so, i'm sure money would've been a factor but so too is that sentimental and nostalgic feel following in his father's footsteps and no doubt he still is family and friends in the uk as well. much reaction to _ friends in the uk as well. much reaction to this? _ friends in the uk as well. much reaction to this? any _ friends in the uk as well. much reaction to this? any of- friends in the uk as well. much reaction to this? any of the - reaction to this? any of the players have anything to say? flying onto the social media platforms of choice? , , , , ,�* ., choice? yes, because this isn't a done deal _ choice? yes, because this isn't a done deal yet. — choice? yes, because this isn't a done deal yet, people _ choice? yes, because this isn't a done deal yet, people are - choice? yes, because this isn't a done deal yet, people are being| done deal yet, people are being quite coy at the moment, yes, they are selling haaland shirts but because no one knows what number he's going to wear or if the deal will be completed in principle, city
6:38 pm
are still being quite touchy about it at the moment they spoke to a norwegian journalist said back in norway, this is the biggest thing that ever happened and he is the most expensive norwegian player of all time in a few fans as well who are very, very excited and since they left manchester city have not had a recognised number nine and a class a goal—scorer like domestically that has been dominant but i think this is a finding that says we want them next. the champions league, they're so close to reaching the finals again, 90 seconds away from beating real madrid. erling haaland is someone who can make the difference in those really big european games. that a really big european games. at a different dimension _ really big european games. at a different dimension it will add to that moment. a very interesting timing but perhaps, dortmund want to release it but here we are. we are in the thick of this title race and
6:39 pm
this evening, we have city, and their own hands and bring who got next season. their own hands and bring who got next season-— next season. sounding like a consniracy — next season. sounding like a conspiracy theorist _ next season. sounding like a conspiracy theorist there, i next season. sounding like a | conspiracy theorist there, but dortmund have one more game in the bundesliga and they're trying to stop liverpool doing the quadruple of winning one of those trophies but all of this we have the mind games betweenjuergen klopp and pep guardiola and this may be a step in that in liverpool knows the preps as they do not get the titles this year, next year, it mightjust become a bit more difficult and also that dressing room would not be buzzing, they know that they could win the premier league and its and their own hands and next season, there will be reinforcements but one thing i've been told is that erling haaland is fond of the number nine and he's trying to make a print of it and we know, you don't know if you possibly lose it still be at it.
6:40 pm
we heard a little from jan aage fjortoft, a family freind of the haalands, in nestas first report there, we also asked him about how he can fit into the guardiola system at city there was a time when a number nine was a bit out of fashion but now, a lot of clubs know they need that kind of stryker when you have all those players in and around the box in a big number nine and the thing is, with erling haaland as well, he's notjust a typical number nine, is also very quick and pep guardiola never liked playing with the big number nine. i think the scene of manchester city in the last couple of seasons is to take the next step and pep guardiola has shown of the sd can play different systems but you see sometimes, you'll wish you
6:41 pm
had that number nine and the good thing about that is he's not only a number nine, he's so many other things we play on counterattacks and i think that she also saw players he could play with, and sterling and all of those kinds of players and it's lovely first record of those kinds of services in and around them. so, ithink kinds of services in and around them. so, i think that pep guardiola will see that in that he is sometimes like that kind of front and i know he hates to be asked about that but i think you can see that would've made him more frightening which i think will fear the liverpool and chelsea of this world. city fans will be excited to see what they get from haaland next season, how this one pans out could be a lot clearer over the next 2a hours. starting at villa park tonight, where a big win
6:42 pm
for liverpool would take them back to the top of the table. john murray is there for radio 5live my myjob is to win games for aston villa and i'll always be the case was i represent whatever club i represent, i want to win fiercely. and if you want the headlines that steven gerrard says is going to take and stop their title hopes, i'm not gonna go that for you. title hopes, i'm not gonna go that for ou. ., ., ., , for you. how we can win our games and our city — for you. how we can win our games and our city will _ for you. how we can win our games and our city will play _ for you. how we can win our games and our city will play their - for you. how we can win our games and our city will play their games. i and our city will play their games. but before — and our city will play their games. but before they are played, i think and i'm _ but before they are played, i think and i'm sure cities is doing that. and by— and i'm sure cities is doing that. and by should be stopped.
6:43 pm
some big decisions have been made in vienna today about how the champions league will look from 202a. it will be bigger, with 36 rather than 32 teams involved and rather than seperate groups to decide who reaches the knockout stage, there will one single group. the europa league and europa conference league will also adopt the same format. jane they had to get this right and they've gone with this so called �*swiss system' it's going to look very different. we've known for a while that do it for wanted to expand the champions league and competitions to europe because they have such a cup of the champions league and they want to participate into it and so if you go on to win it is manchester city fans know too well. after you waive executive meeting today, it was agreed to add four more teams to the competition and they're going to completely change the format. all starting for the 2024, 2025 season.
6:44 pm
the new format, stand back because you might need a massive sea level and at the moment, it consists of eight groups of four and so 42 teams as you can see, and the top two teams go to the knockout stages been under the new format, the four extra teams make up 46 and they will make one big table as you mentioned, the swiss system, the top eight go straight to the last 16 and then on the 24th, the two league playoffs and initially, teams are going to be seated and that is something of a bone of contention and also played two extra games in the face, at the moment of six, they'll play eight. uefa have a strong commitment to the principle of urban competitions and sorting merit while recognising the need to protect domestic leagues. but there will be at least a minimum of two more games at the stage for

6:46 pm
probably remember, there were huge protests when that was proposed, not just in this country but that will not happen in two places will be awarded from countries who collectively performed well the previous season and english teams done well in scottish teams and if there were to be applied next season, they will get an extra spot. very briefly, if english teams continue to dominate when talking about the champions league, and it could suddenly turn to a race of the top five. could suddenly turn to a race of the to five. , ., ., ., . top five. getting the automatic champions _ top five. getting the automatic champions league, _ top five. getting the automatic champions league, but - top five. getting the automatic champions league, but under| top five. getting the automatic- champions league, but under these new proposals because liverpool got into the final, five english clubs would get these spots but todd number fifth, would get these spots but todd numberfifth, playing in vying would get these spots but todd number fifth, playing in vying for that fourth spot in it would mean they would not worry about that but it would have to get there. but his
