English Premier League team Manchester City have officially announced the signing of Dortmund’s Norwegian star Erling Haaland.
Erling Haaland, who met with Borussia Dortmund management, stated that he wanted to leave the team at the end of the season. After this meeting, Manchester City staffs, who reached the German team, reported that they were ready to end the transfer.
Manchester City CEO Ferran Soriano has called Borussia Dortmund coach Hans-Joachim Watzke and said they will use Erling Haaland’s release fee of 60 million euros. Manchester City will not be able to pay the 60 million Euro release fee in installments due to a special clause in the contract. The entire payment will be made in one go.
The Norwegian striker’s current contract with Borussia Dortmund expired in 2024.
HOW MUCH WILL ERLING HAALAND EARN?
It is estimated that Erling Haaland, who is expected to sign a 5-year contract with Manchester City, will earn £27 million a year in his new team. If the aforementioned figure becomes official, the 21-year-old football player will be the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

REAL MADRID LEFT FROM THE TABLE
Known for his closeness to Real Madrid, Marca made a striking claim about Erling Haaland. The La Liga giant, who was following the player closely, claimed that the Norwegian striker had shelved this transfer due to injury problems. After this decision of Real Madrid, who was interested in the player for a long time and contacted the management company, the possibility of the player’s transfer to England increased.
BAYERN MUNICH IS EXPENSIVE
Bayern Munich President Oliver Kahn, on the other hand, said that the numbers mentioned were beyond their imaginations in a statement regarding the rumors that they would transfer Erling Haaland if Robert Lewandowski leaves the team.
The figures for Haaland are often talked about. These are situations that are far from what we imagined for us. Of course, Haaland is an excellent attacker and a very interesting player for the future. But the numbers spoken are beyond our imagination.
HOW DID HE RETURN FROM GALATASARAY’S DOOR?
Erling Haaland could have been transferred to Galatasaray, but economic conditions did not allow this transfer to take place. Galatasaray, who made a transfer attempt during the period he played in young striker Molde, insisted on paying the 3 million Euros the club wanted in installments. However, this transfer did not take place when Molde asked for the money in advance. The Norwegian club then sold the player to Salzburg for 5 million euros.
HAALAND WORDS FROM FATİH TERİM
Galatasaray Coach Fatih Terim, while explaining that they were interested in Erling Haaland before, explained the process about the Norwegian striker with the following words.
Since Haaland is from the same city as Linnes, we communicated, talked to his father. We’ve reached the point of agreement. Guess what would have happened in Turkey if we gave 8-9 million to a 20-year-old player who unfortunately never left Norway. It is now worth 150 million Euros.
NECATİ ATEŞ: THIS CHILD IS FLYING
Mustafa Demirtaş, who was in the scout team of the yellow and red people for a while, said that in 2018, Galatasaray watched the 20-year-old Norwegian football player.
We followed Erling Haaland in 2018 and reported it to Terim. Hodja liked it so much, he immediately sent Davala and Necati Ateş to watch live. Ateş called the teacher in the 10th minute and said that this kid is flying. An offer was made in the form of installments and it did not happen.
HIS FATHER ALSO PLAYED IN MANCHESTER CITY
Erlin Haaland’s father, Alf Inge Haaland, who is also a football player, transferred from Leeds United to Manchester City in 2000. He took a break from his career due to the injury he suffered after Roy Kean’s foul in the Manchester United match, but he could not return to his old days afterwards.
Roy Keane was fined £5,000 for foul play and banned for three games. However, after admitting in his autobiography that it was an act of revenge, he was fined an additional £150,000 by the Football Association (FA) and banned from the pitch for 5 more matches. But even then, he said he felt no remorse for what he had done.
DID ROY KEANE END HIS FATHER’S CAREER?
It is said that the career of Erling Haaland’s father, who was injured after this move by Roy Keane, came to an end. However, Alf-Inge played for 90 minutes in the said match. He had surgery that summer, but Keane’s blow was not on his right knee, but on his left knee.
Alf-Inge told BBC Radio 5 Live in 2014, “I don’t blame him for kicking me. What I was worried about was that he said in his first book that he did it for revenge. I don’t think it’s part of football. I’ve never accused him of ending my career. But that’s my England It was my last 90 minutes in . Maybe that foul had something to do with it.” he said.
