The transfer from BVB star Erling Haaland to Manchester City is dry. The Norwegian will play for the British club under manager Pep Guardiola from July 1. The transfer, which had been pending for a long time, is a bitter sporting loss for Dortmund. But on the same day, BVB provided supplies and signed DFB star Karim Adeyemi, who is currently still under contract with RB Salzburg.
According to estimates, Borussia Dortmund paid a transfer fee of 30 million euros for the German international. The black and yellow have tied the talented 20-year-old to them until 2027.
But is the Adeyemi commitment enough to fill Erling Haaland’s big footsteps? according to rumours another professional has come under the Dortmund club’s sights: Sébastien Haller from Ajax Amsterdam. The 27-year-old still has a contract with the Dutch until 2025, but according to reports from the “WAZ” Borussia Dortmund thinks there is a good chance of signing the striker.
Sébastien Haller should switch to BVB
Haller is said to have been the focus of Dortmund’s attention before moving from Eintracht Frankfurt to West Ham United in the summer of 2019 – but at that time the club could not pay the 50 million euro transfer fee.

However, the impending departure of Erling Haaland now gives BVB a little more financial room for manoeuvre: The Norwegian is leaving the club for an estimated €75m fee.
Haaland transfer sets “new standards”
The amount of money is said to have been the reason why other top European clubs withdrew from Haaland poker early on – the transfer based on transfer fee, earnest money, salary and consultant fees was simply too expensive for many clubs.
Liverpool coach Jürgen Klopp reacted to the Haaland transfer in an interview with “Sky Sports News” and asserted: “I know that there is a lot of talk about money out there, but this transfer will set new standards, let me put it that way.”
Manchester City can confirm that we have reached an agreement in principle with Borussia Dortmund for the transfer of striker Erling Haaland to the Club on 1st July 2022.
The transfer remains subject to the Club finalizing terms with the player.
