Man City confirm Erling Haaland deal.
Manchester City have confirmed that they have reached an agreement with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of Erling Haaland.
At 3.30pm on Tuesday, the Premier League champions issued a statement which says: ‘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 1st July 2022. The transfer remains subject to the Club finalising terms with the player.’
In a deal that is sure to strike fear into defenders throughout England and beyond, one of the most coveted young players in world football is linking up with one of the greatest sides the Premier League has seen.
Pep Guardiola’s team are closing in on a fourth Premier League title in five years but after yet another Champions League elimination, supporters will be hopeful that Haaland’s goals can finally fire them to European success.
Goals will be pretty much guaranteed from a man who has scored 85 in just 88 appearances for Borussia Dortmund since joining the Bundesliga side from Red Bull Salzburg in December 2019.
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 1st July 2022.

Erling Haaland career.
The Norwegian international burst on to the scene playing for the Austrian team in the group stage of the 2019/20 Champions League, a campaign in which he found the net in a 4-3 defeat to Man City’s Premier League rivals Liverpool.
While he has continued to impress in terms of personal statistics, the next step for Haaland will be making his mark with the team that is continually challenging for honours at home and abroad.
Already in possession of league and cup winners medals from his time in Austria, Haaland added a German Cup to his collection during his time with Dortmund.
He will now be aiming to help Guardiola’s side continue to rack up the trophies, with that missing Champions League trophy now looking a little bit closer.
Haaland is sure to slot straight into the team next season, shouldering the goalscoring responsibilities for a team that has become known for winning without a bonafide striker.
The 21-year-old will also be following in the footsteps of his father Alfie, who spent three years at Man City the beginning of the century.
