Haaland on his way to Man City?

Manchester City are reportedly deemed favourites to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland this summer.



The 20-year-old is enjoying another superb season for BVB and has bagged 31 goals from just 29 appearances in all competitions.

A number of elite teams have been linked with his services and it has been claimed that Dortmund may sell him amid their financial concerns.

According to The Mail, the Cityzens are leading the race to sign the marksman ahead of the likes of Chelsea and Real Madrid.

Manchester United have also been strongly linked with the Norwegian, but it is reported that they could be priced out of a move.

Pep Guardiola's side are lining up a new striker with Sergio Aguero likely to leave the club when his contract expires in June.

It was previously mentioned that Haaland has a release clause worth £68m on his contract which will become active in June 2022.

However, it is now revealed that he has a £90m buy-out clause and any interested club must pay the fee in full this summer.
