Borussia Dortmund have announced the signing of Norwegian forward Erling Braut Haaland.
The 19-year-old has been in prolific form for Red BullvSalzburg this season, scoring 28 goals in 22 games includingveight in the Champions League.
The form had attracted the interest of Manchester United among other sides, but Dortmund jumped to the front of the queue for the talented teenager and have snapped him up on a contract until 2024.
Haaland – the son of former Leeds and Manchester City midfielder Alf Inge Haaland – played for United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Norwegian side Molde, and many saw that as a key factor in his next move.
But he has opted to switch to Germany, where he will link up with the likes of Marco Reus and Jadon Sancho at Dortmund.
Dortmund currently sit fourth in the Bundesliga table, and will face Paris Saint-Germain in the last-16 of the Champions League in February.
