Manchester City have confirmed the signing of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in a £51million deal.
Haaland, one of the world’s most sought players, will officially join City from Borussia Dortmund on a five-year contract on July 1.
The Premier League champions confirmed in May that they had reached an agreement with Dortmund to sign the 21-year-old and the club announced on Monday that the deal is complete.
Haaland was unveiled by the club with an announcement video which recreated a picture of wearing the 2008-09 Man City kit as a boy.
“This is a proud day for me and my family. I have always watched Man City and have loved doing so in recent seasons,” he said.
“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 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 becomes the latest man to follow in the footsteps of his father by signing for Manchester City.
Haaland’s father, Alf Inge, is a former City player. He made 38 appearances for the Manchester club between 2000 and 2003.
Haaland could make his first appearance in City colours during their pre-season tour of the United States with a match against Mexicans Club America scheduled for July 21 in Houston.
