Premier League champions Manchester City have seen their efforts to complete Erling Haaland’s signing deal take an important step forward, according to reports.
The topic of Haaland’s future has of course been rampant in the media for quite some time now.
This comes with the Norwegian sensation set to be available at a reduced price this summer, when a clause in his contract with Borussia Dortmund comes into effect.
A whole group of heavyweight players in European football, in turn, showed great interest in his signature.
However, recent weeks have seen the emergence of a prominent Haaland lottery winner – in the aforementioned Manchester City form.
The Sky Blues, still looking for a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, are tempted to drag all-out attempts to land the key man in Dortmund, adding the final piece to what will be a highly intimidating attack puzzle under Pep Guardiola’s watch.
And, as noted above, if the last word from the media on Monday night is anything to go by, the Etihad transfer team’s efforts to land Haaland look like fruition is imminent.
According to a report from Mike Keegan of the Daily Mail, City have reached an agreement on personal terms of contract with the striker’s representatives.
The deal in question centers around the impressive terms of £500,000-a-week, wages that would make Haaland the best-paid player in the Premier League.
Citizens, in turn, are ready to release the 21-year-old’s release clause when the campaign is over, amid the suggestion that ‘if all goes according to plan, what is likely to be a five-year deal should be sealed in the next week or so’. .

Word of Man City’s alleged deal with Haaland comes fresh on the back of the youngster’s return to the goal scorer last weekend.
Against the backdrop of a rare, fruitless spell in front of goal, Haaland scored a brace, as well as a crucial pass, as Dortmund rioted en route to a 6-1 win over Wolfsburg at Signal Iduna Park.
