Official: Haaland completes Manchester City move

Erling Haaland has completed his transfer from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City for a sum of £51.2m and will be with Manchester City for five years. Haaland, 21, notched 86 goals in 89 games for Dortmund and arrives at the Premier League champions as one of world football's most coveted forwards. An agreement was reached in May with Borussia Dortmund after City activated the player's release clause and he will join the Cityzens on July 1 2022. "This is a proud day for me and my family," "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," he added. "There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep [Guardiola] is one of the greatest managers of all-time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil 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." Said Haaland, the son of former City captain Alf-Inge, who played for the club between 2000 and 2003.
