Man City to announce Haaland signing this week

Man City to announce Haaland signing this week as Premier League giants agree astonishing terms

May 9, 2022 By Ali M.
This is according to the Athletic, with the respected and reliable David Ornstein reporting that the Cityzens have won the race for the Norwegian superstar.

Manchester City thrashed Newcastle 5-0 on Sunday to take one huge step towards a fourth Premier League title in five seasons, and the day after that impressive wins, Cityzens fans received another brilliant update.

According to the Athletic, the English giants have all but won the race for highly-rated striker Erling Haaland, with Guardiola's side agreeing personal terms with the striker ahead of triggering his well-known $83M release clause.

The reliable David Ornstein dropped this report, stating that the Norwegian sensation will move to the Etihad Stadium on a five-year contract that will see him earn a whopping £500,000-a-week, which translates to roughly $618,000 every seven days.

In fact, the report adds that terms between the club and player were agreed last month, with Manchester City now set to complete this move and announce the signing within this week. If true, this will bring an end to a long but interesting transfer saga which saw the Premier League leaders go to war with Real Madrid, Barcelona, and PSG for the Bundesliga talent.

Having scored 85 goals in 88 appearances since moving to the Signal Iduna Park, it's not hard to see where the Haaland craze stems from. Despite being only 21, the former RB Salzburg forward has already established himself as one of the hottest and most clinical strikers in world football.

Since the decline and eventual departure of Sergio Aguero, Pep's side have been crying out for a goalscoring no.9. Gabriel Jesus has often been used on the flank, with Guardiola deploying Phil Foden as a false nine on several occasions this season. However, the inevitable arrival of Haaland will bring a focal point back to the Cityzens' attack.

Meanwhile, De Bruyne and Co. are preparing for their next fixture in the English top-flight. A midweek trip to Wolves is next on the agenda as the Manchester heavyweights look to maintain their three-point advantage over closest rivals Liverpool. However, given their remaining three fixtures – Wolves (A), West Ham (A), and Aston Villa (H) – this won't be an easy feat.
