Erling Haaland's transfer to Manchester City has been confirmed.
City will pay just €60 million to activate the striker's release clause at Borussia Dortmund.
A City statement read: "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 1 July 2022."
Sources in Germany had already told The Athletic that the prolific Norway striker’s proposed move was a “done deal”.
The transfer has now been formally announced.
Haaland, son of former Nottingham Forest, Leeds United and City midfielder Alf-Inge Haaland, began his career at Bryne and Molde in Norway, then spent a year with Austria’s Red Bull Salzburg before joining Dortmund in January 2020.
He has scored 85 goals in 88 appearances there, and despite interest from the likes of Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain, the reigning English champions and current leaders are on the brink of signing one of the hottest properties in world football.Manchester City confirm Erling Haaland agreement with Borussia Dortmund - The Athletic View Story
