City have been heavily linked with a move for the Dortmund’s striker this summer and will have to beat off competition from the likes of Manchester United, Chelsea, Real Madrid, Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Juventus among others for his signature.
The Norway International looks to set to leave Dortmund this summer after his father, Alf-Inge Haaland, and agent, Mino Raiola, were spotted in Spain earleir this month.
RAC1 later revealed that Haaland’s father and his agent had made a series of eye-watering demands to Barcelona, but Raiola reacted just hours after the reports via social media labelling it as ‘fake’.
Barcelona’s Lionel Messi, who is currently the world’s highest paid footballer is on a reported £500,00-a-week AFTER tax, with stoppages as much as £200,000-a-week.
Haaland, who has now gone 495 minutes since he last scored a goal for club or country would be a dream signing for City to replace Sergio Aguero, who is leaving the Etihad Stadium when his contract expires this summer.
But Pep Guardiola had described the prospect of another record breaking transfer in the close season as “impossible”, though he later softened that stance by claiming a 100 million-pound signing was possible.
In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra and City Chief, Many Sky Blues have been expressing their thoughts and opinions of this latest update.
He’s going to end up in Paris, a team that only really has 13 games max per season— GW (@gwhewell0704) April 11, 2021
Rioala will ruin his career… Extravagant price tag equates rooftop expectations— Monogram guy 🔌 (@gid_max) April 11, 2021
Lol this is getting out of hand now. He’s an unbelievable talent but a million a week? I don’t care how good your are a million a week is a joke! I just hope his career doesn’t get ruined by this…— Ceiran Walsh (@Mr_C_Walsh) April 11, 2021
Delap and Andre silva were always clear— Shane (@FerranFerocioso) April 11, 2021
Nah raiola overrating Haaland too much lol he’s not worth more than 300k a week— Ali (@Ali_Szn14) April 11, 2021
Even messi at 22 dont get that much lol— 🏎 (@Prince_Ederson) April 11, 2021
Raiola at the end will "wreck" Haaland🇳🇴 with this idiot thinks. Any team will pay this salary to him and the price to sign him neither. I guess Raiola + Haaland have made a deal for 2022/2023 season to Real Madrid (this year Mbappé🇫🇷), continuing one year more at BVB. My feeling— GJ#9🤙🏾🇮🇨 (@jdiazm11) April 11, 2021
Whoever is paying him 1m a week good luck bc it won’t be us— the taxman (@onemilli19) April 11, 2021
City shouldn't bother with these kind of demands, it's absolutely ridiculous, there are a lot of good strikers out there who would jump at the opportunity to sign for City.— Mzontsundu (@Mzontsu30335553) April 11, 2021
Then good luck to the lucky owners,we aint ever signing him for that much and if thats real, then im happy we are not getting him— OnlyCity🇭🇺 (@MCFCDavid027) April 11, 2021
