TRANSFER NEWS LIVE! Manchester City announce signing of Haaland – Liverpool sign Darwin Nunez
The Norwegian international joined Pep Guardiola’s squad with a powerful reputation, solid on the back of an awesome 86 goals in just 89 appearances for Borussia Dortmund.
Manchester City signed Erling Haaland because they predict he can get even better, according to Director of Football Txiki Begiristain.
City disclosed on Monday that Haaland’s £51m signing from Borussia Dortmund has been completed, with the 21-year-old becoming a member of the team on a 5-year contract deal.
With a relatively-affordable release clause, Manchester City had to beat off competition from other European clubs, although the cost of wages and agent fees takes the total expenditure to far higher.
Liverpool have also completed the signing of Uruguay striker Darwin Nunez from Portuguese side Benfica on a six-year-deal for an initial £64m.
