BVB already informed? Erling Haaland apparently immediately before change

What the Spatzen around Borussia Dortmund has loudly whistled out of the roofs for months will probably be officially announced this week: Erling Haaland returns to BVB and joins Manchester City.

With regard to “Sources from Germany”, the usually well-informed transfer expert David Ornstein from “The Athletic” reports that Haaland’s change from BVB to Manchester City was decided. The English and Haaland had already reached a final agreement last month, the report on Monday says.

At BVB, the announcement in the “coming days” is expected that the English champion and league leader will pull the exit clause over a rumored 75 million euros for Haaland, says Ornstein. If everything is progressing as expected, Haaland becomes a city player, the prestigious journalist writes.

Ornstein’s information is confirmed by “Sky”. According to the TV station, ManCity Managing Director Ferran Soriano has already informed his counterpart Hans-Joachim Watzke from BVB about the upcoming Haaland obligation. The deal is “immediate” before the conclusion.

BVB does not receive transfer for Erling Haaland in installments

The 21-year-old Norwegian switched to BVB in January 2020 despite the interest of other European top clubs for 20 million euros, but at that time insisted on an exit clause in the amount of 75 million euros from 2022.

Haaland’s contract with the black and yellow is dated to the end of June 2024. However, in view of its outstanding rate of 85 goals and 23 templates in 88 competitive games for BVB, it is not surprising that there is a separation beforehand.

Unlike common, the BVB should, by the way, receive the transfer fee at once and not distributed in installments over the years. The Borussia would certainly also have the necessary change to find replacement quickly.

BVB probably before the obligation of Karim Adeyemi

Suitable for this, Erling Haalands director Oliver Freund from Red Bull Salzburg recently confirmed that a decision in the poker around Karim Adeyemi would be imminent.

The designated BVB Erling Haalands director Sebastian Kehl also spoke of a “timely” decision at Haaland and Adeyemi. So the switches are clearly set.

The total volume of the Haaland transfer should even be over 300 million euros. In addition to the transfer and an astronomical salary claim, Haaland’s entourage should also collect a lot. For a long time, Real Madrid was also a hot candidate to buy the striker.
