Haaland is set to earn £375,000-a-week with City but will significantly increase that number through endorsements this summer.

Puma, who already sponsor City’s kits for £65m a year, are reportedly in a bidding war with rivals Adidas to sign the 21-year-old star.

Both German shoe companies want to retain him for the next decade.

The notoriety of playing in the Premier League will boost Haaland’s earning potential, with offers worth £5million a year being discussed.

Haaland ended his BVB career with a goal and previously received an honor guard in his team’s 2-1 home win over Hertha Berlin.

He later posted an emotional video on social media thanking the Dortmund fans for their support.

In the video Haaland called: “Dear BVB fans, I had unforgettable years in Dortmund.

“Thanks for the great support, you will always have a place in my heart. All the best to you all.”

Another social media post read: “It was nothing but an honor to wear this jersey.

“I spent unforgettable moments at BVB, met special people, not to mention a fan base that was always our extra man on the pitch.

“The Yellow Wall is really incredible. I will never forget that!”

Haaland scored 86 goals in 89 games during his time in Germany.

He will officially join Man City on July 1.
