Per the report, City are ready to make the Borussia Dortmund striker the Premier League's highest-paid player on more than €600,000 a week, with a five-year deal expected to be wrapped up "in the next week or so".
Haaland's deal expires in 2024, but the striker has a release clause that would allow him to leave for a fee reported to be €75 million at the end of the season.
Real Madrid have also been linked with the 21-year-old star forward, who has scored 82 goals in 85 games for BVB.
