“That’s the figure that City is willing to pay”
There is no doubt that Haaland is the best pure center-forward playing football today, and his stats back it up. The Norwegian signed a contract with Manchester City last summer until 2027, but rumors still persist about a possible departure to teams such as Real Madrid or PSG, who will go for him if any of the “three musketeers” leave.
City doesn’t want to hear about a departure and is already considering a renewal that includes a salary increase that could reach half a million pounds per week, a staggering sum in a football world where emotions have been put aside and sheiks and tycoons hold the power. The renewal wouldn’t include a contract extension and would remain until 2027.
