MANCHESTER CITY are set to announce the signing of Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland THIS WEEK after the German side allowed him to take care of “personal matters” on Monday.

Haaland is believed to have already met with Man City officials in Brussels and COMPLETED a medical ahead of the move, which he wants done by the end of the week.

Haaland, 21, has scored an impressive 85 goals in 88 appearances for the Bundesliga giants, making him one of the most highly sought-after talents in world football.

Dortmund told Sport1: “The players have no training today and we allowed Erling to take care of personal matters.”

Sources in Germany say Dortmund are now aware that the English champions plan to activate the release clause in his contract.

Haaland, who has a £64million release clause and is expected to sign a five-year deal, is believed to have visited the Erasmus Hospital in Brussels on Monday for some tests connected to the move.

The Bundesliga club’s director Sebastian Kehl said at the weekend that he expects “clarity over the next week”.

And Haaland is believed to be happy with the financial package on offer at the Etihad.

SunSport understands these will fall in line with the wage structure currently in place.

Kevin De Bruyne is thought to be the top earner at the club at present — on around £385,000-per-week.
