Manchester Cityhave announced the signing of Erling Haaland fromBorussia Dortmund.

This is a proud day for me and my family, he said.

I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons. You cant help but admire their style of play, its exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me.

There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep is one of the greatest managers of all-time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil my ambitions.

I want to score goals, win trophies and improve as a footballer and I am confident I can do that here. This is a great move for me and I cant wait to get started in pre-season.

The Athleticreportedin Aprilthat Haaland had given the green light to a move to City, where his father, Alf-Inge, spent three seasons between 2000 and 2003.

City confirmedon May 10that they had reached an agreement in principle for the transfer of Haaland, and its understood they paid just €60 million (51.25 million) to activate the strikers release clause.

Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak then acknowledged Haalands imminent arrival in an interview with club media at the end of May, but City were still yet to formally unveil the 21-year-old striker as their player.

The Athleticdetailed herewhy Haalands unveiling as a City player took so long.

Haaland also teased his City moved on social media, posting two pictures of himself as a toddler in the Etihad clubs kit with the caption, To be continued. City replied to his tweet with, See you soon!.

Haaland spent two and a half seasons at Dortmund, scoring 86 goals in 89 appearances in all competitions. Prior to that, the Norway international spent a year at Red Bull Salzburg, having spent two years at Molde and come through the academy at Byrne in his home country.

Dortmund, meanwhile, confirmed the arrival of highly-rated German forward Karim Adeyemi from Red Bull Salzburg last month as they looked to replace Haaland.
