Erling Haaland is the hottest name on the market. The former RB Salzburg player has scored 80 goals in 82 appearances for Dortmund. Next summer, the striker’s release clause is only £ 68 million, so a series of big men have stepped in to entice the Norwegian star.

Man City in an effort to find a top-class striker to replace Sergio Aguero has considered Haaland as the number one target to recruit. In addition to the release clause, The Citizens also had to pay a bribe for Haaland, his father and agent Mino Raiola, bringing the total value of the deal up to 100 million pounds.

 Haaland is the target of Man City.

However, according to a report from the Daily Star, the British champions will have to pay nearly 300 million pounds for Haaland’s five-year contract. The Norwegian striker’s salary will be £ 33 million / year, equivalent to £ 630,000 / week. This makes Man City somewhat falter, because if accepted, Haaland will surpass Cristiano Ronaldo (£500,000/week), becoming the highest-paid player in the Premier League.

Paying that salary for a 21-year-old player is pretty insane. Moreover, this has the potential to disturb the dressing room, which has many stars of Man City. In addition, Real Madrid is also a big man said to want to own Haaland’s signature.
