It is now understood that the Premier League champions have made headway in their pursuit of the 21-year-old, with the Daily Mail reporting that the striker's representatives have agreed terms on a deal for him to join the Etihad outfit.

Pep Guardiola's side is reportedly set to trigger Haaland's £63 million (R1.2 billion) release clause in his contract with Dortmund, and will hand him a record-breaking salary of more than £500 000 (R9.5 million) a week, which would make him the English top flight's highest-paid player.

The lucrative contract is expected to run over five years and it is believed the deal will be completed over the coming weeks.   

Alf-Inge Haaland, the marksman's father who represented the Citizens during his own playing career, is understood to have been heavily involved in the negotiations.
