Man City Mercato: Haaland joins the Skyblues
As announced by Man City, Erling Haaland will join the North of England. According to the information issued by the club in a statement, the Norwegian will land in Manchester from the opening of the transfer period, that is to say, July 1, 2022. An agreement in principle has been reached between the Citizens and the Borussia Dortmund striker for a record arrival this summer in the Premier League.
In this hot issue of the mercato, Man City is overtaking all its competitors, starting with Real Madrid and Barcelona, who wanted to get the Norwegian forward at all costs this summer. According to the statement of the Skyblues, there are only a few details to be settled between Erling Haaland and BVB for the operation to be definitively validated, even if these last elements are more administrative than anything else.
Man City Mercato : The clauses of the transfer of Haaland
Regarding the amount and the different clauses of the transfer of Erling Haaland, the information differs from one source to another. Fabrizio Romano, who has been very well informed about this case since the beginning, announces that Man City should make a check of about 60 million euros to Dortmund to get the services of the Norwegian striker. A nice sum, which corresponds to the release clause of the player.
The medical examination of the Norwegian serial striker would, moreover, have already taken place and would have proved conclusive. At the level of salary, again, many things have been announced during the day, but Fabrizio Romano confirms that the player will receive 375,000 pounds (about 440,000 euros) per week. A salary as high as that of Kevin De Bruyne at Man City. A nice arrival in attack that can compensate for the potential departure of Mahrez in the coming months.
