Manchester City announced earlier this week that they had agreed a fee with Borussia Dortmund for Erling Haaland.
The Norwegian has been sensational for Dortmund over the past two-and-a-half seasons.
Signed for €20 million in 2020, Haaland was unstoppable in a yellow shirt, scoring 86 times in 89 games.
He helped the club to the German Cup title in 2021 and established himself as one of the best players in world football.
Haaland will always be regarded as a hero at Dortmund and he played his last game for the club on Saturday afternoon.
Ahead of kick off against Hertha Berlin at Signal Iduna Park, Haaland was treated to a quite incredible farewell by the home fans.

Dortmund fans are unrivalled. The atmosphere inside Signal Iduna Park as Haaland said his goodbyes was quite extraordinary.
Haaland’s final game went to plan as Dortmund managed to defeat Hertha Berlin.
The away side took the lead when Ishak Belfodil scored from the penalty spot in the 18th minute.
But Dortmund fought back in the second half, with Haaland scoring a penalty himself to restore parity.
🗣️ “He came into the Bundesliga scoring goals, he will leave the Bundesliga scoring goals.”

Dortmund’s 17-year-old wonderkid, Youssoufa Moukoko, emerged from the bench to score the winner with six minutes remaining.
Dortmund’s win means they finished the campaign second in Bundesliga, eight points behind bitter rivals Bayern Munich.
Without Haaland up top, it will be tough to overcome Bayern in the 2022/23 season.
Der BVB will be hoping that Haaland’s replacement, Karim Adeyemi, will be able to score the goals needed to challenge the Bavarian giants.
