Manchester City have confirmed they have agreed to a deal in principle to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland in the next summer transfer window, with the deal due to close on July 1. It was reported earlier this week that the Norway international was set to join City.
Reports emerged earlier this week that Erling Haaland was set to join Manchester City in the summer of Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegian international has established himself as one of the best strikers in European football with the German club and his prolific goalscoring form had caught the eye of several elite European clubs.
Real Madrid and Manchester City were seen as favorites to sign the Norwegian, although it’s understood the Norwegian rejected the Spanish club’s offer as he was more attracted to the reigning English champions’ sporting project. The 21-year-old is believed to have a €75million release clause which kicks in this summer and it is understood City have pulled the trigger on the deal.
It has been reported that the Norwegian striker has signed a five-year deal with the English club and will earn around €350,000 per week including bonuses and bonuses. City manager Guardiola declined to comment on the transfer speculation, citing its incompleteness, although Cityzens have confirmed a tentative deal for Haaland.
“Manchester City can confirm that we have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland to the Club on July 1, 2022. The transfer remains subject to the conditions of the Club’s finalization with the player”, indicates the communicated.
