The famous Italian agent Mino Raiola has not been in Europe in recent weeks and is currently offering his most valuable pearl - Erling Haaland. Because, if we can trust to English tabloids, the three clubs got seriously hooked and warmed up to the idea of having one of the best strikers in today's football in their squad Now, what Raiola set as a basic condition for each of the clubs could make the Norwegian ace the highest-paid player in the history of the Premier League and the second-highest-paid player in the history of football.
As it is stated, at each of the meetings at which he was, he clearly and loudly announced to the interested clubs that he would sit down for the negotiating table only when he received guarantees that the other side was ready to pay his client an astronomical 1,000,000 euros a week ?!
This figure, it is almost certain, will condition one of the most complicated jobs, and rarely any club could provide it in times of great crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic without including the majority percentage of the right to use player names and many other commercial actions.
The English claim that three clubs are currently "at the peak" Raiola reportedly maintains the most intensive contacts with Manchester City, Real Madrid, and Paris Saint-Germain, which is assumed that they could provide the required amount of money without major problems.
However, it is also stated that the representatives of Real and Barcelona, with whom Raiola and Haaland's father met ten days ago, were shocked when they heard how much the Italian was planning to ask for money for his protégé.
It should be borne in mind that this is a net amount, which means that the expenditure for the club - depending on the country - would be 40 or 50 percent more. In addition to the three main competitors in the race for Haaland, the mentioned Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool are also in the story, but as they say, with a much smaller chance of reaching the Norwegian ace.
If he finds a club that will really pay the required figure, Haaland will threaten Cristiano Ronaldo's earnings. The Portuguese currently has 32,000,000 net at Juventus. With a salary of 1,000,000 euros a week (and if it really is already taxed money), the Norwegian would collect 48,000,000 a year. Under the current contract, there is only Lionel Messi in Barcelona who earns more
