Manchester City are set to complete the signing of Erling Haaland.
The Citizens announced they had agreed a fee [believed to be £51.1m, per Sky Sports] with Dortmund for the Norwegian star.
He will sign for the club after personal terms are completed.
That’s an incredible amount for a manager that has only been in the Premier League since 2016.
But how does his spending compare to other managers to have managed in England’s top tier?

1. Jose Mourinho – £1.21 billion
Guardiola has spent money at will at Man City and is set to break the £1 billion mark.
He isn’t the highest spending manager in Premier League history, though.
Mourinho spent a grand total of £1.21billion during his time in England with Chelsea, Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur. Guardiola will have to spend another £300m to surpass his great rival.
Klopp is eighth, having spent £439.07m during his time at Liverpool.
While Conte could break into the top 10 this summer if he chooses to stay with Tottenham Hotspur.
