One of the most anticipated moves in the history of world football is on the verge of being completed. Erling Haaland is only a few steps away from completing his move to Manchester City.
The hype for this move has been building for over a year now. Ever since the player broke into the scene with his scintillating finishes, there have been speculations about where his next destination would be.
And now we have the answer finally. The Dortmund forward will be joining Manchester City next season.
According to a report by The Sun, the move will be announced most probably by the end of this week. The reports further suggest that the Norwegian has completed his medical for his new club and returned to Dortmund.
The German papers have been buzzing about the news of one of the most lucrative deals in football history. Given the run of form Haaland has had in the previous few seasons, he will be a massive fish with a hefty price tag.
Haaland joined Dortmund earlier in 2019 and has become a footballing sensation since then. At the tender age of 21, the player already has 61 goals in just 66 games for the German side.
Haaland dropped out of first-team
Following this significant development, the Borussia Dortmund side has decided to drop Haaland from their squad. Earlier, it was revealed that they had demanded clarity from Haaland over his final decision. And it seems that they now have it.
As a result, the player might not be seen as a part of the current Dortmund side.
It will be an emotional moment for the Norwegian striker to represent Manchester City, considering his family history.
His father, Alf-Inge Haaland, is a former football player who played for Manchester City between 2000-20003.
Haaland joining Manchester City settles one of the biggest transfer debates in football. However, another debate regarding the future of Killiam Mbappe remains in balance.
Hopefully, we will get some clarity on his situation soon as well.
