English champions Manchester City have unveiled Norwegian youth star Earling Browat Holland at the club. City have made Holland public at the club via a video. And the video ends with a picture of Holland wearing a 2022-23 jersey. The 21-year-old has signed a five-year deal with Dutch club Borussia Dortmund for 51 million.
He had signed an agreement with Citi last May. Top European clubs, including Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich, had plans to sign Holland. However, he has chosen City. The Norwegian has said in an interview after joining the club that he cannot wait to work with coach Pep Guardiola. I’ve also watched City’s recent seasons. ’Holland said,‘ You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of opportunities, which is perfect for a player like me. ’
I want to and I am convinced that I can do it here. This is a great step for me and I can’t wait for the pre-season to start. ‘ He still has years to do. We believe he can do even better with coach Pep Guardiola. This is a great sign for our club. We are confident that our supporters will be happy with his performance, “the club said in a statement.
Coach Guardiola has been without a forward since Sergio Aguero left Argentina in 2021. At the time, City’s attempt to sign Harry Kane was unsuccessful. Holland came to Dortmund in 2019 from Red Bull Salzburg. Holland’s father, Alf Inge, also signed for Leeds from Leeds at the age of 22. The City have been watching Holland since he was in Molde. Their monitoring is now complete. Football director Taksiki Begiristen said.
