Manchester City signs a contract with Haaland

Manchester — Manchester City have agreed to sign a contract with Borussia Dortmund’s Norwegian striker Erling Haaland on July 1. The two clubs announced on Tuesday.

“The transfer is conditional on the club finalizing the terms with the player,” according to Reuters.

The city did not provide financial details of the transaction, but German media said the total cost of purchasing Harland in a multi-year transaction was € 300 million (300 million) including his salary, agency fees and bonuses. It reported that it could exceed $ 16.08 million.

Dortmund said the club expects “a positive effect of € 35-40 million on key revenues for the 2022/2023 fiscal year” once the transfer is complete.

The value of the 21-year-old striker soared thanks to his prolific work in Dortmund after joining them from Salzburg on the Austrian side two years ago.

British media reported that Haaland had passed his medical care on Monday, and Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said it was a “set a new level” transfer in the Premier League.

Haaland has scored 85 goals in 88 Dortmund games since his debut in January 2020. He was the top scorer in the Champions League and UEFA Nations League last season.

The Bundesliga has scored 21 goals from 20 starts this season, and Dortmund will finish second in the league after champion Bayern Munich at the end of the season on Saturday.

However, Dortmund failed to qualify for the Champions League knockout stage and fell into the Europa League, which did not pass the playoffs.

Citi is about to replace Sergio Aguero after the Argentine striker (the club’s highest scorer in history and 254 goals) transferred to Barcelona by free transfer last year.

Brazilian striker Gabriel Jesus was unable to block his position in the starting lineup, and Guardiola often led the attack with the midfielder as a “fake nine.”

Dortmund is interested in Salzburg forward Karim Adeyemi as an alternative to Harland. -agency
