Erling Haaland’s Transfer To Man City Is A ‘Done Deal’ And Will Likely Be Announced This Week.

Manchester City have reportedly wrapped up a deal to sign Erling Braut Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

The club is poised to announce the signing  in the coming weeks.

According to The Athletic, Haaland will move to City this summer with confirmation expected later in the week.

Sources in Germany have described the deal as being ‘done’ in what represents a massive coup for Guardiola’s team.

It’s added that personal terms are complete and that Dortmund anticipate City informing them in the coming days of their intention to activate the striker's €75 million release clause.

Despite rumours, Erling Haaland’s salary agreed with Man City won’t go beyond the level agreed with Kevin De Bruyne, now worth around £375,000 per week, he is expected to sign a contract with Man City until June 2027 - so he’s not gonna break City salary structure.
