Erling Haaland is likely to become the highest-paid player in EPL history if a move to Manchester City materializes.
The 20 years old will cost Manchester City over £ 150 million in transfer package, but City will have to meet his wage demands of £ 600 per week.
City are keen to land Haaland at Etihad, a situation that has been motivated by the departure of Aguero at the end of the season.
Haaland is seen as the key replacement of Manchester City Iconic Argentina. Pep Guardiola is however a big admirer of Harry Kane but believes Tottenham won’t let their high-rated striker leave, as they already thwarted Guardiola’s effort to raid them Kane’s services in his last attempt.
Guardiola feels Tottenham would make it impossible for the England captain even if he decides to leave. So City are now turning their attention on landing Haaland, who has been a massive revelation at Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.
Haaland agent, Mino Raiola, is demanding a stagaring amount. He believes that whatever team that manages to buy Haaland will still have a potential asset for years to come.
Dortmund acquired Haaland for just £19.5m in December 2019, with a sell-on clause inserted on his contract if he was to leave in 2022. That could add up to 100m Euros (£85m).
Dortmund are keen to keep their star this summer but have admitted they would be forced to sell if they get a good offer of 180m Euros (£154m).
Raiola yesterday said that he will not let his past disagreements with the current Manchester City boss scupper any potential Haaland’s move.
Raiola and Guardiola fell out over Guardiola’s handling of Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Barcelona. Raiola said to The Athletic: “I’ve closed the book a long time ago. Everybody knows what I think of him personally.”
