Erling Hland will sign Manchester City.

The Erling Hland soap opera is coming to an end. This week, the Borussia Dortmund striker is expected to sign for Manchester City.

The 21-year-old Norwegian had his medical visit to Belgium on Monday. And only awaits the formalization of his transfer estimated between 60 and 90 M € according to the sources.

When Hland was announced in Spain

This was not the scenario announced a few months ago, when many media thought Hland was favorable to a move to Spain.

Despite some rumors around Paris Saint-Germain, we were mainly talking about a duel between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona. So how the Cyborg could he spin the English? As for the Catalan club, it’s not really a surprise. President Joan Laporta seemed determined. But coach Xavi quickly understood that his Bara in crisis could not compete with the competition.

The Bara did not have the means

It’s very difficult, I’m not going to lie to you, reacted the Blaugrana coach at a press conference. If he opted for the money rather than the project? I wouldn’t say that, I won’t disrespect the other projects. We do not have the only valid project. City has a baggage of many titles. If what you say (the transfer from Hland Man City, editor’s note) happens, it will be because of our financial problems.

For its part, Real Madrid did not come up against the same obstacle. In addition to the Parisian Kylian Mbapp, the White House seemed ready to finance the arrival of Hland. Discussions have well started. But according to Cadena SER, a request from the Norwegian clan has prevented any development.

Prez refused a request from the Norwegian

Indeed, the player’s entourage would have demanded the addition of a €150m release clause valid after his second season, in case things went wrong. An unthinkable option for Florentino Prez. As we know, the Madrid president is more in the habit of setting huge departure clauses to avoid any unpleasant surprises. It remains to be seen whether Manchester City has accepted the request of its future recruit, who is taking advantage of a clause to leave Dortmund.
