Brutal Borussia Dortmund fans insist star striker Erling Haaland will be ‘a bigger flop’ than £100million summer signing Jack Grealish at Manchester City.

City’s pursuit of striker Haaland has taken a significant step forward, with the club agreeing terms with the player’s representatives.

Sportsmail understands that a suitable financial package – which would make Haaland the Premier League’s highest-paid player on more than £500,000 a week – has been given the nod.

City are now expected to trigger the 21-year-old striker’s £63million release clause at Bundesliga side Dortmund and, if all goes according to plan, what is likely to be a five-year deal should be sealed in the next week or so.

Last week, Dortmund insisted that nothing had been agreed and added that they were seeking a conclusion with others, including Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, in the hunt.

But now it appears as though Pep Guardiola is edging closer to signing his main target. 

Dortmund fans, however, believe the Norwegian talisman will be a massive flop at the Etihad, one even saying he will be a bigger flop than last summer’s £100million signing Jack Grealish.

Former Aston Villa star Grealish has very much found himself a back-up option under Pep Guardiola at City after finding the net just five times so far this campaign in all competitions since his big-money move.

Haaland’s track record would suggest that he should thrive at City, having scored 56 league goals in 54 starts since he joined Dortmund from Salzburg in 2020.  

But fans believe his injuries will not make it money well spent for the Citizens.

More fans tweeted concern of his injuries: ‘Tears in my eyes most money in the Prem for 15 games a season. 

Another added: ‘All jokes aside he’s an insane talent but 500k a week for him esp. considering his injury record is insane.

Another fan agreed, by tweeting: ’30m per year for ghosting and being injured while ‘team Haaland’ is talking s**t the whole time.’
