Erling Haaland: Man City complete £51m signing of striker from Borussia Dortmund

The Independent says Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year deal.

The 21-year-old officially joins after the Premier League champions triggered a €60m (£51m) release clause in his contract with the Bundesliga club last month.

Regarded as one of the best young players in the world, Haaland scored 86 goals in 89 games during two-and-a-half seasons at Dortmund.

The Norway international’s confirmation as a City player comes 22 years to the day that his father Alf-Inge joined City in 2000.

Haaland said: “This is a proud day for me and my family. I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons.
