Manchester City have announced the agreement with Borussia Dortmund to sign Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian is one of the best young players in the world and the deal is reportedly worth around €60m, the striker’s release clause.
“Manchester City can confirm we have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland to the Club on 1st July 2022,” the English champions stated today.
“The transfer remains subject to the Club finalising terms with the player.”
Haaland had his medical in Norway yesterday and the paperwork to complete the deal will be done soon.
The towering striker, 21, joined Dortmund from Austrian club Red Bull Salzburg in 2020, and has scored 85 goals in 88 appearances in all competitions for the German club.
Despite struggling with injury this season, Haaland has scored 28 goals in 29 games, averaging an incredible one goal per game.
Haaland, whose father Alf-Inge also played for Manchester City, is expected to give Pep Guardiola’s side the potent focal point in attack they have lacked.
Despite being dominant in most of their games, City have oftentimes lacked a cutting edge, which they hope Haaland will provide.
