Manchester City have agreed terms with Borussia Dortmund's Erling Haaland over a deal that will see him pocket £500,000-per-week in wages, according to the Daily Mail.

The Leeds-born Norway international is expected to move this summer as City prepare to trigger his £63 million ($82m) release clause.

The Premier League champions are hoping to announce a deal "in the next week or so" that will see Haaland become the highest-paid player in the history of English football.

Norwegian set for Premier League switch

Last week, Dortmund insisted that nothing had been agreed and added that they were seeking a conclusion with others, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, in the hunt.

There was a hope the player would extend his contract for a year. But City have remained quietly confident throughout the process and are now closing in on the prolific forward manager Pep Guardiola craves.

The Spaniard missed out on bringing Harry Kane to the club last summer, and despite topping the Premier League, City have at-times looked short up front.
