As per reports from Gazzetta Dello Sport, agent Raiola is working hard to get Haaland and salary of over €50 million. This is not including the bonuses and add-ons relating to performances.
Haaland is one of the most exciting young talents in the world of football and is loves scoring goals. Manchester City, Manchester United, PSG, Real Madrid and Liverpool are all interested in signing the Norwegian along with the likes of Bayern Munich, Juventus and Barcelona. But if Raiola has his say in the proceedings Haaland could not come cheap for anyone.
RAIOLA WANTS €50 MILLION SALARY FOR HAALAND
Currently the 21-year-old is scoring for fun for his club Borussia Dortmund. So far this season he has scored 7 goals in the Bundesliga from his 5 appearances and also has 4 assist in the league. He already scored once in the Champions League and have a hattrick in the DFB Pokal.
His incredible goalscoring abilities have rightfully attracted interest from all corners. Many clubs were looking to sign him in the summer. But they were put off by the transfer fee demanded by Dortmund. The player is said to have a release clause of €75 million in his contract, activated from 2022. Hence the clubs are planning to sign him next summer rather than pay Dortmund a higher fee.
Even then the player will not be cheap as he is currently represented by Mino Raiola. The Super-agent is notorious for the very high wages that he secures for his clients alongside his high agent fee. Hence, the current reports of €50 million salary for Haaland come as no surprise, as he is one of Raiola’s main clients.
If any club wants to sign Haaland, they will surely have to agree with the terms of Raiola. While negotiations could lower the fee, it is still going to cost the club upwards of €100 million to complete the signature of Haaland. But considering the generational talent that he is, this could even be a bargain.
