Manchester City have completed the £51 million acquisition of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.
On July 1, Haaland, one of the most sought-after players in the world, will sign a five-year contract with City from Borussia Dortmund.
On May 10, the Premier League champions stated that they had struck an agreement in principle with Dortmund to buy the 21-year-old, and the club confirmed the deal on Monday.
‘This is a proud day for me and my family,’ said Haaland.
‘I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons. You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me.
‘There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep is one of the greatest managers of all time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfill my ambitions.
‘I want to score goals, win trophies, and improve as a footballer and I am confident I can do that here. This is a great move for me, and I can’t wait to get started in pre-season.’
Haaland is one of the most prolific goalscorers in world football and has netted 86 times in 89 appearances for Dortmund during two-and-a-half years there.
