Manchester City summer target Erling Haaland’s pursuit has progressed significantly, with the club and the player’s representation agreeing to terms.
According to Sportsmail, a sufficient financial deal has been approved, which would make Haaland the Premier League’s highest-paid player at more than £500,000 per week.
City is now set to activate the 21-year-old striker’s £63 million release clause at Borussia Dortmund, and a five-year contract should be completed in the next week or two if everything goes according to plan.
Dortmund stated last week that nothing had been agreed upon and that they were working to reach an agreement with others in the hunt, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain.
It was hoped that the player’s contract would be extended for another year. City, on the other hand, has maintained quiet confidence throughout the process and is now closing up on the prolific forward Pep Guardiola desires.
Last summer, the Spaniard missed out on adding Harry Kane to the club, and despite winning the Premier League, Manchester City has looked short up front at times.
Haaland, a Leeds native who has also played for Red Bull Salzburg and Molde, scored twice in Dortmund’s 6-1 victory against Wolfsburg on Saturday, giving him 33 goals in 31 games for club and country this season.
Alf-Inge, his father, was a Manchester City player and has been heavily involved in the negotiations.
In March, this newspaper revealed that City was in the box seat for Haaland, who is seen as Europe’s hottest property, and that personal terms have been negotiated.
A weekly salary of about £500,000 would put him ahead of Kevin De Bruyne, who earns roughly £385,000.
Should the move go through, Haaland may make his debut in City colors in the United States, with the team looking at crossing the Atlantic to play two friendlies in July.
His native Norway, on the other hand, will play four times in the Nations League in June, the last of which will be against Sweden on June 12.

Erling Haaland Networth
Erling Haaland, a Norwegian prodigy, tops the rankings for footballers with a transfer valuation of more than €80 million: €155 million, up from €120 million at the end of October (+€35 million).
If the rumored €75 million release clause, which is valid until 2022, is true, Borussia Dortmund will almost definitely be tempted to sell him at a significantly greater price at the end of this season. If Erling Haaland continues to score goals and perform at a high level when the COVID-19 epidemic is over, he might shatter Neymar’s €222 million transfer fee record.
Giovanni Reyna (+€34M) for players with an estimated value between €40 and €80M, Florian Wirtz (+€16M) for players with an estimated value between €20 and €40M, Nicólas González (+€7M) for players with an estimated value between €10M and €20 M, and Yunus Musah (+€4.5M) for players whose current transfer value is still below €10M had the highest increases in November for the other price ranges considered
