The Norway international will leave BVB in the upcoming market, when a £67m release clause in his contract becomes active, and Man City, Barcelona and Real Madrid are thought to be in a three-way fight for his signature.
A recent report claimed that Haaland wants to move to Bernabeu this summer, with Los Blancos stepping up their pursuit after suffering a setback in their bid to sign Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe.
However, according to Marca, Man City believe that they have 'the money and the power' to sign the Norwegian and are confident of bringing him to the Premier League.
The 21-year-old has again been in strong form for his German club during the 2021-22 campaign, scoring 23 goals and registering seven assists in 25 appearances in all competitions.
Despite having a relatively low release clause, the overall deal for Haaland is likely to cost in the region of £300m when taking into account agent fees and player wages.
The forward has netted 80 goals and registered 22 assists in 84 appearances for Dortmund since making the move from Red Bull Salzburg in January 2020. body check tags ::
