They also plan to eliminate the astronomical release clause. Manchester City is busy keeping Erling Haaland (23).
Italian media ‘Gazzetta dello Sport’ said on the 10th (Korean time), “Man City is preparing to renew the contract with Holland. They are trying to reject approaches from FC Barcelona and Real Madrid,” and “In a situation where the contract is until 2027, 1 “We want a one-year contract extension. We also want to remove the release clause worth 200 million euros (about 285.5 billion won). Manchester City hopes Haaland will reach an agreement within a few months,” the report said.
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona are known to be teams that will target Haaland in the next few years. Real Madrid wants Haaland as a replacement for veteran striker Karim Benzema (36, Al Ittihad), who left for Saudi Arabia. Barcelona’s Robert Lewandowski (36) is likely to soon enter his twilight years. This is why they are aiming to recruit Haaland.
Manchester City intends to provide clear compensation. According to a past report by the Daily Star, Haaland’s current weekly salary is 375,000 pounds (about 624 million won). Along with Kevin De Bruyne (31), he is at the highest level at Manchester City. If he signs a new contract with Manchester City, Haaland will receive a weekly salary of 600,000 pounds (about 1 billion won). This amount is the 8th highest in the world among soccer players.
Haaland had already been promised a weekly wage increase. Haaland signed a contract until June 2027 when he left Borussia Dortmund to join Manchester City. In his first season, he became the Premier League’s top scorer. Under the terms, Haaland was expected to receive a 60.5% weekly wage increase. Holland scored a whopping 52 goals in all competitions in the 2022-23 season, leading Manchester City to its first treble in club history.메이저놀이터
He is expected to receive an astronomical annual salary. If Holland renews his contract, his annual salary will jump significantly from 19.5 million pounds (about 32.4 billion won) to 32.5 million pounds (about 54 billion won).
The contract renewal results are expected to become official soon. ‘ESPN’ reported, “Negotiations between Holland and Manchester City are not over yet, but discussions will be completed within the next two months.”
I thought there was a high possibility of renewing the contract. The media said, “Halland wanted to play at Real Madrid,” but “Halland is happy at Manchester City. He will want to settle down at the team. He will be willing to agree to new terms.” Haaland is already under contract with Manchester City until June 2027. “There is,” he explained.
It seems that the main offensive line will not change for a while. Julián Alvarez (23), who recently completely filled the void left by De Bruyne, also signed a contract with Manchester City until 2028. ‘ESPN’ added, “Coach Pep Guardiola strongly denied rumors of a transfer for Brighton & Hove Albion striker Evan Ferguson (18). He is very satisfied with the performance of Alvarez and Haaland.”
