The 21-year-old landed at Manchester Airport on Tuesday on a private jet from Barcelona.
The Norwegian is expected to visit City’s training ground tomorrow, pose for photographs and undergo an interview at City’s Football Academy, although this is not expected to be published until next week.
Haaland underwent a medical examination by Dr Ramon Cugat, with whom Guardiola has worked closely in the past and who often checks the physical condition of City players, according to The times.
Guardiola is said to want Cugat to check on Haaland’s fitness given the striker’s health problems this season – he has missed eight of Dortmund’s last 20 games in the 2021-22 season.

City chief executive Ferran Soriano, meanwhile, believes the English champions are in for a good deal despite Haaland’s expensive £400,000-a-week salary.
He told the Catalan radio RAC1: We are moving into a time where the big players get to choose, and Haaland has chosen us.
You have seen the transfer figures and they are very reasonable. The salary we are paying you is what we can pay and what corresponds to you.

He has had all the peace and time to choose where to play. We have been close to him, we have explained the project to him, but the money could have been given to him by United, Bayern or Real Madrid. He has decided where he wants to go and we are happy.
“Our focus is on football, playing well and winning, rather than star players. And we lacked a center forward.
‘We had someone spectacular like [Sergio] Agüero, we lost him because of his age, and we have been looking for a replacement for more than a year and Haaland is it. We will introduce it soon.
