Erling Haaland And Man City Agree Summer Move

Manchester City have reached an agreement to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

Gatekeepers News reports that the Norway striker is expected at Etihad in July after the activation of a 60m euro (£51.2m) release clause in his contract.

The 21-year-old will end the club’s hunt for a successor to their all-time top scorer Sergio Aguero, who joined Barcelona on a free transfer last summer.

“We can confirm that we have reached an agreement in principle for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland,” City said.

“The transfer remains subject to the club finalising terms with the player.”

Haaland has scored 85 goals in 88 appearances for Dortmund since joining from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020.

Meanwhile, Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola said he could not discuss the incoming signing for legal reasons.

“Everybody knows the situation. I shouldn’t talk because I don’t like to talk about the future or next season,” he said.

While commenting on the impact a new number nine would have on the Premier League champions, Guardiola said, “New players always helps to be a stronger team. But not one defender or striker will solve our defensive or scoring problems.

“The club always has to have a vision for the future. The decisions the club makes I am aware and supportive of 100%.”
