The contract of Erling Haaland with Manchester City contains a release clause that Real Madrid is eager to take advantage of and is already making future transfer preparations.
According to a recent report, Real Madrid are already preparing a daring bid for Erling Haaland following the Norwegian international’s impressive start at Manchester City.
The Norwegian striker, who is in his debut season in the Premier League and has already tallied 15 goals for his new team, seemed destined to shatter all previous records.
During his spectacular tenure at Borussia Dortmund, where he scored 86 goals in 89 games, a plethora of European powerhouses pursued Haaland.
However, it was City that ultimately won the 22-year-old’s signature in the summer after triggering a £51 million release clause in his contract.
Real Madrid is now preparing to imitate that maneuver by snatching up the desired striker when a comparable clause in Haaland’s Manchester City contract takes effect in 2024.
According to El Chiringuito TV, Haaland will be up for sale in two years for €200 million (£174 million).
Manchester City, on the other hand, are determined to keep their new talisman and will go to any length to prevent Los Blancos from stealing the talented striker.
Following Haaland’s remarkable start to life in England, the defending Premier League champions are already working on a new agreement for him as per Mundo Deportivo
Since making his debut for Pep Guardiola’s team in August, Haaland has scored an amazing 17 goals in 11 games.
Given that a release clause would be eliminated in any new contract and that Haaland only signed a five-year agreement worth £375,000 per week in the summer, Manchester City would probably have to make Haaland their highest-paid employee in order to convince him to reject Real’s advances.
Guardiola praised Haaland for his unstoppable performance in the Sunday Manchester derby.
In addition to his most recent three-goal performance, Haaland picked up two assists to propel City to an astonishing 6-3 victory over Manchester United.
At this point in his career, Guardiola, who has worked with many of Europe’s best players, claimed that no one can compete with the striker’s talent.
Guardiola even predicted that Haaland could surpass Lionel Messi’s goalscoring achievements after the striker’s two-goal debut against West Ham on the first day of the season.
