There is also a reported €75 million (R1.2 billion) release clause in his contract that is set to come into effect at the end of this season, a price many consider to be a bargain for his talents.
German outlet Bild has reported that Dortmund’s chief believes that the 21-year-old will join Manchester City.
The Citizens plan to make Haaland the highest-paid player in Premier League history if he joins. The Daily Mail claims that Pep Guardiola will table a contract worth more than £500 000 (R9.8 million) a week in order to pip their rivals to the signing of the in-demand forward.
City are growing in confidence that they will secure the Norwegian’s signature as they seemingly look to finally replace the void Sergio Aguero left.
Haaland has been in fine form in the 2021/22 campaign with the talisman scoring 23 goals in 22 games in all competitions.
