£143 million in 5 years! Manchester City will renew Haaland's contract, refusing to be poached by Saudi Real Madrid
Saudi Arabia's frenzied recruitment in the summer window has sparked alarm among Premier League teams. The Sun revealed on Sunday that Manchester City want to extend Haaland's contract for another year and will offer him an annual salary of £28.6 million.
Haaland was named PFA Player of the Year, UEFA Player of the Year this week, and scored his first hat-trick of the season on Saturday, his fifth in the Premier League. Such a good performance made Manchester City hope to raise Haaland's salary and renew his contract.
One of the reasons is the crazy signing of Saudi teams in the summer window, and before the Premier League closed, Jeddah United once offered 170 million pounds to buy Salah, which led Manchester City to speed up the pace of signing Haaland.
Haaland is signed to Manchester City's contract until 2027, however, City have proposed to Haaland's agent, Pimenta, to extend Haaland for another year. Manchester City, meanwhile, want to raise Haaland's weekly salary to £550,000, meaning Haaland will become the highest-paid Manchester City player per year.
At present, Haaland and De Bruyne are the highest-paid Premier League players in the year, both earning £375,000 a week, while they can receive huge bonuses. If Haaland accepts the offer, he will earn £143 million over the next five years and earn a whopping £28.6 million a year.
In Haaland's contract with Manchester City, there is no release fee, but he has been a target for Real Madrid. Media analysis shows that Manchester City's valuation of Haaland is as high as £300 million.
City will begin formal talks with Haaland in a matter of weeks, but sources close to Haaland say there is no indication that he will be tempted by Saudi Arabia or Real Madrid.
Asked if he wanted to break Shearer's record for Premier League goals, Haaland said: "He's scored a lot of goals and I don't want to look too far, I'm focused on the present. I try to enjoy every moment of my life. I played in a very good team and they helped me a lot. For me, I have to keep improving. ”
