Dortmund announces transfers: Haaland moves to Manchester City, Adeyemi to BVB

Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City have agreed in principle to transfer star striker Erling Haaland after the end of the season. The Bundesliga soccer club and the English Premier League club announced on Tuesday that there were still contractual details to be agreed with the player.

Haaland is said to have informed BVB on Monday about his move to Manchester at the end of the season and completed the medical check. According to information from the Belgian “Nieuwsblad”, the 21-year-old underwent the examinations at the Erasmus Hospital in Brussels on Monday. The newspaper did not give a source for this.

According to their own information, the Bundesliga club Dortmund had allowed the Norwegian to use the day off from training to “regulate personal matters”.

Also on Tuesday evening, Borussia Dortmund announced the signing of national player Karim Adeyemi. As expected, the striker is moving from Red Bull Salzburg to the Revierclub and will receive a five-year contract there.

While a fixed transfer fee of 75 million euros is said to have been agreed for the Norwegian Haaland, who also came from Salzburg at the beginning of 2020, there is no official information about the transfer fee for Adeyemi. Media reports recently spoke of 30 to 40 million euros.

Dortmund’s license player boss Sebastian Kehl announced on Sunday in the Sport1 “double pass” that Haaland’s change could probably take place this week. However, Kehl had not yet mentioned the name of Manchester City as the receiving club. Haaland switched from Salzburg to Dortmund in early 2020 for 20 million euros. (dpa)
