EPL: Manchester City Officially Announces Erling Haaland Signing

Manchester City has completed the £51 million signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund.

The 21-year-old Norwegian was one of the most sought-after players in the world and will officially join the Premier League champions on a five-year contract from Borussia Dortmund on July 1.

On May 10, City announced that they had reached an agreement in principle with Dortmund to sign the 21-year-old, and the club confirmed the signing on Monday.

‘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. said Haaland via Man City’s official website.

‘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 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.’

Haaland is currently one of the most prolific goal scorers in world football, having scored 86 goals in 89 appearances for Borussia Dortmund over the course of two and a half years in Germany.

City had been waiting for Haaland to return from international duty with Norway and the transfer window to officially open before revealing their sensational marquee acquisition.
