Any clubs that are looking to sign Borussia Dortmund superstar Erling Haaland, will have to meet his huge wage demand. The Norwegian is reportedly looking for £30m-per-year in wages when he moves.
According to ESPN, Haaland will be commanding such huge wages if any club is looking to sign him. The Dortmund striker will be available for £63.4m (€75m) as his release clause will kick in from the summer of 2022.
The new wage demand has alerted the clubs that are looking to sign one of the best young players on the planet. Most top sides of Europe including Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, Liverpool, Real Madrid and PSG are interested in signing Haaland.
HAALAND DEMANDING £500,000-A-WEEK WAGE
Erling Haaland captured the imagination of football fans when he scored 9 goals for Norway in the Under 20 World Cup against Honduras. The 21-year-old was prolific for RB Salzburg and did very well in the Champions League. Many clubs started noting his quality, but it was ultimately Dortmund who landed him.
Haaland’s move to Dortmund was another great decision for the player and the club. The Norwegian hit the ground running for Dortmund as he scored goal after goal. He became one of the pivotal parts of the German side scoring 70 goals in 69 appearances for the club.
However, with his release clause about to get active and interest from top clubs mounting, the future of Haaland looks to be away from Signal Iduna Park. But any clubs that are looking to sign him will have to meet his wage demands. Reports suggest that the player wants a wage in excess of £500,000-a-week.
This along with the massive agent fees Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola will demand will surely push the total signing price of the 21-year-old. Clubs like Barcelona that are going through a financial crisis will find this hard to meet. But with the likes of Manchester City and PSG, with their endless riches, Haaland could get his wish granted.
