Haaland ´in the right place to fulfil ambitions´ as Man City complete transfer

After Manchester City officially confirmed the striker’s arrival on Monday, Erling Haland believes he has joined the club in the right way.

City announce the signing of Hland from Borussia Dortmund on May 10.

Norway International has officially penned a five-year contract at Etihad Stadium. The deal expires on July 1.

Haland was one of the most sought after players in Europe and followed in his father’s footsteps by playing for City between 2000 and 2003.

When he joined Salzburg in January 2020, he scored 86 goals in 89 appearances for Dortmund, scoring an average of 84 minutes in all competitions.

Only Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski (123 goals in 108 games) has scored the most goals among players in Europe’s top five leagues.

And after being relegated to the Premier League, Hollande hopes his goals will end up in the trophy under Pep Guardiola.

“This is a proud day for me and my family,” he told City’s official website. “I’ll always look at City and I would love to do that soon.

“They can do nothing but admire their style of play. They create fun and a lot of opportunities for a player like me.

“There are a lot of world-class players in this team and Pep is one of the best managers ever so I believe I am in the right place to achieve my dream.

“I want to score goals, win trophies and improve as a footballer and I’m sure I will work here. This is a big step for me and I can’t wait to start pre-season.

During 2020-21 with Salzburg and DFB-Pokal, Haland won two Austrian Bundesliga titles in Dortmund.

The prolific striker struggled with injuries during the 2021-22 season but has still scored 29 goals in 30 appearances for BVB, including a strike in the last game.

Of these, 21 were scored on his left foot, three on the right and five on the forehead.
