Erling Haaland reportedly underwent medical tests at Manchester City ahead of his transfer this week.
The striker was a major target of the Premier League champions, having turned down Chelsea’s interest last summer.
City have reportedly agreed to trigger the Norwegian’s €75m release clause, leaving the door open for a move.

Haaland is said to have asked Dortmund to allow the announcement this week, before the club’s last game in the Bundesliga.
Once signed, the 21-year-old will become one of the club’s best-paid stars, on par with Kevin De Bruyne, who currently stands at £375,000 a week.
His fees will also be paid in one lump sum, as stipulated in his exemption clause, unlike many major transfers that are paid in instalments.
