He would leave behind Ronaldo and De Bruyne, who earn around 24,000,000 euros per season Manchester City play throughout the 2021/22 season without the classic striker. Pep Guardiola changes fake nines, rotates Bernardo Silva, Phil Foden, but he is aware that he will need a classic striker.
We have already written that the Citizens are in a position to sign one of the three most talented top players of today, Erling Haaland, and a few days after the information that City will have to pay big commissions to Mino Raiola and Haaland father Alf-Inge, in addition to 75,000,000 euros in compensation which would increase the entire transfer to 120,000,000 euros, the British Daily Mail brings a new bomb.
Namely, the giant from the Etihad is ready to stick the label of the highest paid football player in the Premier League to Haaland in the summer and give him around 600,000 euros a week. That would be 28,500,000 euros for a period of one year.
For the sake of comparison, if he decides to choose Manchester as his new home, he will overtake the current leaders of the Premier League, Cristiano Ronaldo and Kevin De Bruyne, who earn around 24,000,000 euros per season.
Although Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also seriously interested in signing the Norwegian, City believes that they could finish the whole job in the next month.
Scenarios on Erling Haaland
However, with words, and not formally, because Haaland is not in the last six months of his contract, but his valid one expires in the summer of 2024.
Few believe that there is a scenario in which the 21-year-old bomber will stay in Westphalia. It is clear that City would get a real good signing that has not appeared since Sergio Aguero left, although the Argentine in the last two seasons at the club has not been at the level that has adorned him since arriving from Atletico Madrid back in 2011.
Haaland has unprecedented statistics in the Dortmund jersey he scored the same number of goals in 80 appearances and scored 21 goals for his teammates. We will see if Real Madrid or Barcelona will react, given that it is known that such young talents usually end up in Spain in one of the two biggest clubs.
Still, City could end up being more successful than everyone, and we can’t imagine how strong City would be with Haaland and a few more new players. Next season could be one of the most interesting so far
