Manchester City is Trying Hard to Persuade Superstar Erling Haaland to Sign a New Deal

The Norwegian top goalscorer is contracted to City until 2027 having penned a five-year deal when he arrived. However, the initial deal included clauses that meant he could leave in the future for a set price.

As such, City is very keen to remove those clauses and is offering a substantial pay rise in return, but Haaland’s camp is not so interested. Whilst Haaland is not looking to move, his representatives are also not looking to remove the clauses that kick in from 2025 after previous clauses for 2024 were nullified by Pep Guardiola signing his new contract last year.

“But it is not really something to be worried about for City, this is nothing against them and Haaland is not about to depart or even thinking about it. “Haaland has just covered his options and wants to make sure he is always in charge of his own destiny.”

The 23-year-old has scored 69 goals in 71 appearances since his arrival at the Etihad in 2022 and has cemented himself as an undroppable member of Pep Guardiola’s side.

This season so far, he’s netted 17 goals in 18 appearances across all competitions.

Real Madrid ready to swoop for Haaland

Real Madrid attempted to sign the Norwegian but lost out to City; however, the striker has remained on Los Blancos’ radar. Real have also been keeping tabs on Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe. But they have been looking at alternatives, including Jamal Musiala of Bayern Munich as well as Haaland.

Official reports suggest that Haaland will be available for approximately £175million when his release clause comes into play next summer. Haaland’s relationship with Jude Bellingham could also play a part as it is believed he would be keen to link up with his former Borussia Dortmund teammate.
