Erling Haaland arrives as Kevin De Bruyne confirms Man City future
Here are your evening Manchester City headlines for Tuesday, May 24.
Haaland pictured jetting into Manchester to complete Man City transfer
Erling Haaland has jetted into Manchester to complete a move to Manchester City.
Earlier this month, the club announced an agreement in principle with Dortmund to sign the superstar striker for £51m in time for next season. And with the Blues wrapping up their campaign on Sunday with a dramatic 3-2 win over Aston Villa to retain the Premier League title, Haaland has arrived in the city to formalise his transfer.
Haaland’s move could be publicly confirmed and announced this week as City box off their first transfer of the summer – and their biggest priority – before the transfer window has even opened.
Kevin De Bruyne confirms stance on City future
Kevin De Bruyne gave an unprompted boost to Manchester City’s future transfer plans as he declared himself committed to the club for at least another three years.
De Bruyne recovered from an injury-affected start to the season to play a key role in helping City pip Liverpool to another Premier League title – his fourth at the club. His end-of-season form earned him the Premier League Player of the Year for a second time, and he followed that up with a fourth City Player of the Year.
His club award was announced at City’s title-winning parade in front of thousands of fans in Manchester city centre, and the Belgian gave an unprompted update on his future plans when asked about his reaction to another accolade.
