Erling Haaland: Man City ready to trigger Borussia Dortmund striker’s 75m euros release clause

Manchester City are ready to trigger the 75m euros release clause in Erling Haaland’s contract in a bid to bring him to the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Pep Guardiola’s side have been leading the race to sign Haaland this year and his release clause means Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing the striker this summer.

Dortmund – who play Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker on Saturday, live on Sky Sports – are set to sign Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi as the Norwegian’s replacement.


City have often played without a recognised striker this season following the exit of Sergio Aguero at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Guardiola was keen to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham last summer and City had offers turned down for the Spurs striker, who is now enjoying a fine run of form under Antonio Conte in north London.

Haaland joined Dortmund from Salzburg in January 2020 and has gone on to score a remarkable 82 goals in 85 games for the German side.

The 21-year-old has missed a number of games with injury this season, but he has still scored 25 goals in 26 games to help Dortmund to second place in the Bundesliga, though they must win their game at Bayern this weekend to retain any hope of winning the title.
