MANCHESTER CITY have revealed a stunning video that provides fans with a behind-the-scenes look at Erling Haaland’s transfer from Borussia Dortmund.
The striker, 21, was finally unveiled as a City player last week after a deal was agreed last month.
He penned a five-year contract after arriving for £51million with Haaland's signing on fee and agents' fees in the region of £34m.
And Haaland looked delighted to have the move confirmed as he posed for photos in City's new kit, having first been spotted in the sky blue of City last month.
Now the club have whetted the fans' appetite ahead of the new season by releasing the video that was filmed following the Norwegian through every part of his transfer.
The film begins with Haaland touching down for the first part of his medical in Barcelona, where he got to meet new team-mates Aymeric Laporte and Ruben Dias at Dr. Cugat’s clinic as they congratulated him on the move.

“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 fulfill 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 can’t wait to get started in pre-season.”
