The transfer of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City could be completed as soon as next week.

After BVB sporting director Sebastian Kehl admitted to the German press yesterday that a resolution is imminent, the Sun reports that talks between all parties are moving quickly.

Kehl explained to Sport1: “Haaland? In the next week, I believe we will have more clarity on Erling. In the end, I wouldn’t be surprised if he moved on.”

Since joining the Bundesliga club in January 2020, the Norwegian striker has scored 85 goals in just 88 appearances.

He was signed for £17.1 million and is expected to leave for nearly four times that, though his £64 million release clause is a bargain given his recent exploits.

Alf-Inge Haaland, Haaland’s father, played for the Citizens from 2000 to 2003 and was instrumental in negotiating a rumoured £500k-per-week deal for his son.

BVB are already guaranteed second place in the Bundesliga, and their final league game against Hertha Berlin on Saturday will most likely be their No9’s final appearance.

Karim Adeyemi of FC Salzburg appears to be Haaland’s replacement, with Dortmund closing in on a £25 million deal for the 20-year-old German.
