Superstar striker Erling Haaland has reportedly informed Borussia Dortmund he will leave the Bundesliga club at the end of the season to join Premier League champions Manchester City, reported dpa.
Sky television and The Athletic portal have reported City boss Ferran Soriano has informed Dortmund chief executive Hans-Joachim Watzke that they will activate a 75-million-euro (78.9-million-dollar) release clause in Haaland's contract.
Dortmund were not immediately reachable for comment but head of professional football Sebastian Kehl told the Sport1 programme 'Doppelpass' on Sunday that a transfer could be concluded this week.
A replacement for Norway's Haaland is already being lined up with Kehl hopeful a move for Germany international Karim Adeyemi, currently with Red Bull Salzburg will soon be completed.
