Erling Haaland is a Manchester City player now after he passed the medical tests. He will be one of the biggest signings in the transfer window this summer after he spent a year at Dortmund.

Manchester City news.

According to reports, Erling Haaland has officially signed for Manchester City as he appears for the medical test in England and will confirm his signing by this week. His father has been into talks with the English side after the speculation of the forward wanting a new challenge.

Guardiola’s side is in need of a natural center-forward and he thinks that Haaland could possibly fit into his plans. Haaland will sign the contract with a wage of £375,000 per week equalling De Bruyne’s wage and the term ends in 2027 which makes it a four-year deal. Guardiola’s side has agreed to pay the release clause after negotiations and confirms it to be around €60 million.

The contract offers Haaland a wage equal to that of Manchester City’s current highest earner Kevin De Bruyne, but an additional bonus and increment in his wages could make him the highest-paid player on the side. The Dortmund striker has scored 85 goals in 88 games this season, making him one of the most wanted players in the transfer window this summer.

Real Madrid was also targeting Haaland but Manchester City emerged victorious in signing him after he passed the medical tests at the club. Haaland has returned to Dortmund and will join the English side at the end of the season and the news will be official sometime this week.

Guardiola’s army missed out on the Champions League final last week after they digested a shocking knockout by Real Madrid after leading till the 90th minute in the second leg of the semifinal.

De Bruyne and the men were in a mood to celebrate until Rodrygo gave the Los Blancos two late strikes to bring them back in the game, and Benzema finished it by converting from the spot destroying their dreams of winning their maiden title. 

Liverpool failed to secure a win against Tottenham as they played a draw in the last matchday helping Manchester City to take a three-point lead at the top of the table with three games to play.

Guardiola’s men defeated Newcastle dominatingly in a 5-0 win at the Etihad Stadium. On the other hand, Liverpool was one-goal down against the Spurs but managed to equalize from Luis Diaz’s goal which kept them in the race with three battles to go.
