Manchester City have agreed to a deal to bring Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund to the club this summer according to Daily Mail.
According to Sportsmail, sources in Germany close to the transfer expect the 21-year-old to opt for a move to the Etihad Stadium. Personal terms have been discussed, according to the sources, and the transfer’s framework is ready for approval by city officials.
Haaland’s Dortmund contract includes a £63 million release clause, and the player’s agent, Mino Raiola, is expected to be compensated handsomely. The overall cost, including those fees and a signing-on incentive, is expected to be in the region of £100 million.
The financials are reported to be within City’s reach, as the Norwegian striker is their top priority transfer target.
Barcelona and PSG have expressed interest, but City’s primary competition is Real Madrid, who will continue to compete for the goal machine’s signature.
However, there is a growing perception across Europe that Pep Guardiola’s Premier League champions are in pole position to sign the continent’s hottest property, and that he will play for Pep Guardiola next season.
After leaving Leeds United, Haaland’s father, Alfie, spent three years at City, and the family still has ties to the club.
City’s search of a high-priced left striker had taken a back seat earlier this week, according to Sportsmail, indicating confidence in a large outlay on a prolific goalscorer.
Following the release of Sergio Aguero last year, Guardiola has often stated that the club requires a frontline striker and that the team has developed ways to play without one rather than not having one.
Erling Haaland, who is close to returning for Dortmund after a muscle injury in January, has an exceptional track record. He has 80 goals in 79 appearances with the Bundesliga club, with a total of 149 goals in 190 games.

Contract with Dortmond
Haaland’s deal with Dortmund runs through 2024, although he has a release clause that kicks in next year, reputedly worth over 80 million euros ($90 million). Mino Raiola, Haaland’s agent, recently added gasoline to the fire by suggesting that “there is a significant probability Erling will leave Dortmund, maybe this summer, maybe next summer.”
Haaland’s Dortmund contract has a release clause that allows him to depart in 2022, and club CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke wants to know what his agent Mino Raiola has planned.
