Erling Haaland Has Flown To The UK To Complete His £51.2m Transfer To Manchester City
Manchester City announced this month they had reached an agreement with the Norwegian forward to join them from Borussia Dortmund.
With title celebrations over, Haaland, 21, has now arrived to finish the final details of the transfer before heading off on international duty.
Haaland’s arrival is part of what promises to be a busy summer at the City.
With Brazilian Fernandinho, 37, leaving, manager Pep Guardiola is set to take the opportunity to bolster his squad.
He is looking at central midfield as an area that needs strengthening, with the 26-year-old Phillips – named in the England squad earlier today – one of the players of interest.
With Leeds securing their top-flight survival at the weekend, it will not make a move for Phillips easy, although City are unlikely to encounter the same stubbornness from Elland Road as they experienced with Tottenham in their pursuit of Harry Kane 12 months ago.
It is not anticipated Haaland will speak to the media until his return for pre-season training in July, ahead of the City’s short tour to the United States.
