Man City is getting ready to extend Erling Haaland’s contract for £865,000 per week.
Haaland cost City only £51 million after the activation of his last summer’s release clause. His first year in England has been a huge success, with the Norwegian forward scoring 47 goals in all competitions.
In 2024, only teams outside of the Premier League could exercise the £175 million release clause in Haaland’s contract at the Etihad Stadium.
That clause has now been removed, and the club is ready to offer a new contract to their star striker.
The removal of the clause came after Guardiola, a Spanish coach, signed a new contract with the Premier League champions in November that would keep him with the team through the summer of 2025. The clause was related to Guardiola’s future at the club.
Haaland is said to be admired by Real Madrid and has aspirations of playing at the Santiago Bernabeu, but he is happy at City and the team believes he would be open to better terms on his current contract, which is good until 2027.
Man City are preparing to offer Erling Haaland a new contract
Although Man City have removed Haaland’s 2024 release clause, it is unclear whether any additional release clauses will be activated during the final stages of his contract.
Haaland earns a staggering £865,000 per week thanks to a series of substantial. There was almost-guaranteed bonuses, despite his basic salary being in line with the rest of City’s top earners.
This enables him to earn around £45 million per year while playing for the Premier League club.
Haaland’s potential commitment to City after an incredible start to life in England will be welcome news to City’s supporters.
This season, he has scored 32 goals in just 28 league games, putting him nine goals ahead of his nearest rival Harry Kane in the race for the Golden Boot.
Haaland has also scored 11 goals in the Champions League, including five against RB Leipzig last month.
He scored again in City’s 3-0 win over Bayern Munich last week. That put Guardiola’s team in control of their quarter-final tie. The team will look to finish the job in the rematch tonight.
