Erling Haaland’s camp ‘responds to Man City’s mega €600K-Per-Week offer’ despite Real Madrid’s and Barcelona interest

Erling Haaland, a striker for Borussia Dortmund, is said to have turned down Manchester City’s first bid for his services.

Pep Guardiola’s side are now seen to be the favourites to sign the stunning Norwegian striker, with Real Madrid apparently beginning to have misgivings about the striker.

Haaland will be available for about £62 million this summer, thanks to a buy-out provision placed into his Dortmund contract after he joined the club from RB Salzburg.

While the proposed transfer fee appears to be a steal, a sizable commission sought by his father, Alfe-Inge Haaland, and his agent, Mino Raiola, as well as his personal salaries, are expected to drive up the cost of any potential move.

Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, Manchester City, Barcelona, and Paris Saint-Germain are all interested in signing the 21-year-old. 

Haaland has been on fire for the Bundesliga giants this season, scoring 23 goals and providing six assists in 23 games.

Despite their best efforts to sign him to a new contract at Signal Iduna Park, his future appears to be away from Marco Rose’s side.

However, while his rejection of the current Premier League leaders is not thought to be final, Haaland is said to have turned down an opening offer from City.

According to the Spanish newspaper  AS, Guardiola’s camp made a substantial offer to Haaland’s father and Raiola.

The proposal reportedly included a weekly salary of £501,000, equal to a net remuneration of nearly £23 million.

However, it is believed that Haaland may be interested in joining City if Real Madrid do not follow through on their initial offer.

Unfortunately, a move to Carlo Ancelotti’s side may necessitate some patience on Haaland’s behalf, as they are allegedly concerned about his injury record, as well as the funds required to complete any deal.

According to El Chiringuito journalist Josep Pedrerol, through Sport Witness, the entire sum for the deal, including Haaland’s wages and commissions, would be a stunning £167 million.

Real Madrid are set to capture Kylian Mbappe on a free transfer when his contract with PSG expires at the end of the season.

While the financial aspects of such a transaction are likely to dominate the discussion, sources in Germany indicate Haaland’s major interest is the quality of the footballing project that has been given to him.

Matthias Sammer, former sporting director of Bayern Munich and current advisor to Borussia Dortmund, confirmed City’s interest in the striker.

“I know City’s behind [him], Sammer said to Amazon, via Bild. “The numbers – I had whiplash! I fainted. My wife lifted me up. Accordingly, it is possible.” Manchester City are still in hot pursuit for a new striker after their failure to sign Harry Kane last season.
