Manchester City have beat off competition from other prospective suitors in the race for the signing of Norwegian striker Erling Haaland.
A statement via the clubs official website, reads:
“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 transfer remains subject to the Club finalising terms with the player.”
Manchester City have confirmed that Erling Haaland will be joining them on a five-year deal in the summer transfer window, with the reigning Premier League champions agreeing to pay the £51 million ($63m) fee that will trigger a release clause in the striker’s contract at Borussia Dortmund.
The prolific striker was certainly one of the hottest properties across Europe and was on the wishlist of several top sides in the continent.
Erling Haaland has been prolific for Dortmund, with 85 goals recorded through 88 appearances, and the 21-year-old’s stunning skill and conversion stats will go in for test when he resumes work under Pep Guardiola at the Etihad Stadium.
