Since joining the German Giants in 2020, Haaland quickly became one of the club’s most prolific goalscorers.

In 89 appearances he netted 86 times while also recording 23 assists.

And to say thank you for his service to the club, Borussia Dortmund organised a pre-match presentation where they handed him a bouquet of yellow flowers along with a picture which reads ‘Danke Erling’.

Fans at the Signal Iduna Park showed their gratitude by chanting his name prior to kick-off.

Haaland capped off his Dortmund career by scoring the winning goal against Hertha Berlin during his final game.

The striker is set to join Manchester City on July 1.

City triggered his £51million release clause earlier this week, and the move has already been dubbed as the biggest transfer of the year.

The Norwegian will earn around £375,000 per-week, the same amount as Kevin De Bruyne.

Pep Guardiola’s side pulled out all the stops to get the deal across the line as they believe Haaland is the man that will help them to their first Champions League title.

And based on his stats in the competition, they might’ve hit the jackpot.

The striker has the best minutes-per-goals ratio in Champions League history AND he is the youngest ever player to reach 20 goals in the competition.

He will follow in the footsteps of his father Alf-Inge, who played for Man City from 2000 to 2003.
