How much did Man City pay for Haaland and how many goals has he scored?

The Sky Blues have agreed a deal to bring the 21-year-old to the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Manchester City will have a new man leading their front line with the club confirming they have agreed a deal to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund this summer.

The Sky Blues have been linked to the 21-year-old for some time, but have won the race for the prolific forward.

Pep Guardiola has been operating with a false-nine this season, with Raheem Sterling, Phil Foden, Jack Grealish and Bernardo Silva all being utilised in the role.

However, with the arrival of Haaland on 1 July, City will likely revert back to playing with a ‘traditional centre-forward’ in the new campaign.

There’s no surprise the Sky Blues jumped at the chance of activating his release clause, with Haaland currently being one of the most prolific strikers in the game.

Since his arrival at Dortmund in January 2020, the 21-year-old has netted an impressive 85 goals in 88 appearances for the Bundesliga club in all competitions.

With that being said, let’s take a look at what we know so far about the deal…

Haaland’s transfer fee

It was initially reported that the release clause in Haaland’s contract was £64m. However, the fee is now believed to be less than that, with Sky Sports, amongst others, claiming City will pay £51.1m for the Norwegian.

In addition, Sky adds that Pep Guardiola’s team will stump up a total of £85.5m for Haaland, with agent fees, signing on bonuses and other costs involved.

Wages

The 21-year-old is set to become the Sky Blues’ joint-highest earner, with Fabrizio Romano claiming Haaland will pocket £375,000 per week - the same wage as Kevin De Bruyne.

If true, Haaland’s move to the Etihad will see him almost triple his weekly salary at Dortmund. The Norwegian is reportedly earning £132,000 per week in Germany, according to as.com

Contract length

Haaland will join City on a five-year deal, as per ESPN.
