Haaland accepts £500,000-a-week offer from Man City

April 19, 2022

Manchester City have struck personal terms with Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland.

The Daily Mail says that a suitable financial package – which would make Haaland the Premier League‘s highest-paid player on more than £500,000 a week – has been given the nod.

City are now expected to trigger the 21-year-old striker’s £63million release clause at Borussia Dortmund and, if all goes according to plan, what is likely to be a five-year deal should be sealed in the next week or so.

Last week, Dortmund insisted that nothing had been agreed and added that they were seeking a conclusion with others, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, in the hunt.

There was a hope the player would extend his contract for a year. But City have remained quietly confident throughout the process and are now closing in on the prolific forward manager Pep Guardiola craves.

Leeds-born Haaland, who has also played for Red Bull Salzburg and Molde, scored twice in Dortmund’s 6-1 thrashing of Wolfsburg on Saturday to make it 33 goals in 31 appearances for club and country this season.

His father, Alf-Inge, played for City and has been heavily involved in the negotiations.
