Before the week concludes and after the player is said to have had a successful medical with the club, Manchester City will announce the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester City has left nothing up to chance as they prepare for next season’s haul. To ensure a better ending to a campaign where they can and should only win one trophy this term, they will strengthen their already powerful attacking frontline.
As per transfer guru, Fabrizio Romano, the Premier League leaders will acquire the services of one of the most sought after strikers for a fee said to be €60m to activate his release clause. The report further states that the deal is in the final stages with an announcement set for sometime this week, before the weekend.
"Erling Haaland to Manchester City, here we go! Haaland has passed medical tests as new Man City player today, he’s back in Dortmund.It will be OFFICIAL this week Man City told BVB board that they will activate release clause [closer to €60m than €75m] in few hours.(Via: @FabrizioRomano)"
Confirming that BVB has started to think about life without Erling Haaland, they are nearing the signing of RB Salzberg star, Karim Adeyemi. Two weeks ago, the German club confirmed that talks are progressing well and personal terms have already been agreed upon.
The only matter left to mull over in the deal: agreeing to the transfer fee and having Adeyemi sign without having a release, so they do not suffer from another Haaland-type headache later on in the future, where they lose one of the best young players in the world for less than €100m.
Manchester City Finally Solving Their Striker Issue
Well, it hasn’t been an issue but rather an issue Pep Guardiola’s wanted to address since the exit of club legend, Sergio Aguero. This coupled with the departure of Ferran Torres, as well as the potential sale of Gabriel Jesus, work on the frontline needed completion before next season gets underway.
It’s hard to convince many that Manchester City needs a player of Erling Haaland’s qualities, as they lead the scoring this season with 89 goals scored in 35 games. But with them out of the running in the Champions League, FA Cup, and EFL Cup, funnily enough, more firepower is needed upfront.
In back-to-back Bundesliga campaigns, Haaland has scored 20 plus goals for Dortmund. Couple this with an 89-goal scoring team and you got one of the deadliest weapons in English and European football… Watch out world!
