Erling Haaland is close to completing a move to the Etihad Stadium after agreeing terms with PL leaders.


A little about the topic

The transfer of the Man City player to Borussia Dortmund could be confirmed as early as this week. It should be understood that the personal terms have been agreed and Man City only needs to launch the €75 million release clause. Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Real Madrid have been linked with Erling Haaland but he will move to the Manchester side where his father played in the early 2000s.

There is information that Erling Haaland will sign a five-year contract that will make him one of the top earners at the club along with key players such as De Bruyne. The Norwegian international was reported to have missed Monday’s training for a doctor in Belgium, a move to be confirmed shortly. If his departure is announced this week, it will give the player an opportunity to say goodbye to the Dortmund fans after the club’s final home game of the season against Hertha Berlin.


What did Guardiola say about Haaland?

Until the PL champions gave confirmation of the deal and Guardiola refused to draw on transfer issues when asked about players from other clubs. Asked about the signing of Erling Haaland last month, Pep Guardiola said he has neither the worry nor the business in his head to think about what will happen at this club next season. And with the club keen to focus on winning the PL title, Pep Guardiola is unlikely to comment on the potential move in its pre-match press conference on Tuesday ahead of the game against Wolves.


What kind of striker do City need?

Man City have needed a striker since Aguero left the club but failed in their pursuit of Tottenham’s Harry Kane last summer. Even with a hefty registration fee, Erling is a cheaper alternative, but younger and could get even better. He has scored 28 goals from 29 appearances in all competitions this season since the previous campaign, where he scored 41 of 41 appearances for his club.
