Man City ready to trigger Haaland's 75m euros release clause

Manchester City are ready to trigger the 75m euros release clause in Erling Haaland's contract in a bid to bring him to the Etihad Stadium this summer.

Pep Guardiola's side have been leading the race to sign Haaland this year and his release clause means Borussia Dortmund are resigned to losing the striker this summer.

Dortmund - who play Bayern Munich in Der Klassiker on Saturday,  - are set to sign Red Bull Salzburg striker Karim Adeyemi as the Norwegian's replacement.

City have often played without a recognised striker this season following the exit of Sergio Aguero at the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

Guardiola was keen to sign Harry Kane from Tottenham last summer and City had offers turned down for the Spurs striker, who is now enjoying a fine run of form under Antonio Conte in north London.
