Man City, Dortmund agree £85M on Norwegian striker’s sale

By News Desk

Ahead of next season’s premier league, English club, Manchester City, has reached an agreement with a German football club, Borussia Dortmund, to pay the total sum of £85.5 million for its Norwegian striker, Erling Haaland.

A breakdown of the funds showed that City would pay £51.1 million to Dortmund for the services of the 21-year-old striker while over £30 million includes agent fees, signing bonus, and other costs.

The agreements reached between both clubs for the 21-year-old striker were confirmed by Manchester City on Tuesday, barely 24 hours after completing his medical at a Hospital Erasme in Brussels, Belgium.

Before both teams reach the agreement, Haaland had scored 85 goals in 88 matches for Dortmund after joining the team from an Austrian club, RB Salzburg, in January 2020.

“I’ve been told the release fee is actually 60m Euros (£51.1m) and the total, including agents’ fees and the signing-on fee, is 100m euros (£85.5m).

“When you consider this player on the open market would be going for as much as maybe £100m, that could potentially be a remarkable piece of business for Man City.

“There has been huge excitement as this deal edged closer and closer, and it is a fantastic story for Haaland. I’m sure everyone has seen the photos of him as a kid in a Man City shirt and with his dad playing here between 2000 and 2003 – he has obviously grown up with a real affection for the club.

“And to come back next season and be their No 9 in the week we celebrate the 10-year anniversary of that famous Aguero winner against QPR that won City their first Premier League and they have signed a fantastic goalscorer – 85 goals in 88 appearances for Borussia Dortmund since he went there in 2020, one of the most coveted strikers in the world and European football and he is going to be playing in Man City’s sky blue next season.

“This is a club who are chasing their fourth Premier League title in five years and I would say that is a pretty daunting statement of intent by Pep Guardiola and Man City.”
