One of the most prolific and sought-after strikers in world football is set to play in the English Premier League next season after Manchester City confirmed an agreement has been reached with Borussia Dortmund for Erling Haaland.
There had been months of speculation concerning the 21-year-old's future, with rumors of a potential move to City increasing in recent weeks.
On Tuesday, a City statement read: "Manchester City can confirm we have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland to the club on July 1 2022.
Haaland is set to join Manchester City.
"The transfer remains subject to the club finalizing terms with the player."
City will reportedly pay the Norwegian's 60 million euro (around $63 million) release clause, bringing an end to the EPL champion's search for a striker following the departure of record scorer Sergio Agüero last summer.
The news of Haaland's impending move to the Etihad is ominous for City's rivals as a lack of cutting edge up front has been a relative weakness for Pep Guardiola's side this season -- even though the club still leads the league.
