Manchester City have agreed terms to sign Borussia Dortmund forward, Erling Haaland according to various reports.
The 21-year-old Norwegian international who has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona, Bayern and the Manchester clubs for several weeks, seems to have make up his mind to join the Cityzens.
Haaland joined BVB Dortmund from Salzburg in January 2020 and has gone on to score a remarkable 82 goals in 85 games for the Bundesliga side.
According to several media reports, Haaland has reached an agreement with Manchester City who will now pay the €75m release clause for the lanky forward.
The contract will see Haaland earn 500k a week on a five-year deal. The Leeds born forward who has been missed a number of games due to injury this season, has managed to score 18 goals and provided 7 assists in 20 Bundesliga games this season.
Speaking to ESPN, Haaland said he likes to win games and trophies.
“I love to win games, and I want to win as many trophies as I can in my career. And to win trophies, you have to win games, and you have to be consistent and all of that, you know, but yeah, I enjoy when people succeed.” He said.
Dortmund are already preparing for life without the Norwegian who has scored 12 goals in 15 caps for Norway. They are set to sign Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi as the Haaland’s replacement.
