The news fell yesterday, around 4:30 p.m. While the 2022 summer transfer window has not yet opened, Manchester City has formalized the arrival of Erling Haaland in the North West of England. Serial scorer for Borussia Dortmund (61 goals scored in 66 Bundesliga matches), the Scandinavian will sign a five-year contract with the Citizens.
Even before the official announcement, the media had confirmed the choice of the striker, who was also courted by FC Barcelona and Real Madrid, and ignited on the financial details of the operation. A transaction thanks to which the Haaland clan would have filled their pockets with tickets. But today, brand and Skysports indicate that Manchester City would have spent much less money than expected!
Prices lower than advertised
First of all, the English would not have paid the €75m announced as the price of the player’s release clause, but only €60m! This clause has always been talked about and obviously no one had the right amount. And that’s not all ! In terms of salary, the press argued that Haaland would receive between €30m and €40m per season. Unheard of in the Premier League. Well that would be wrong!
brand specifies in fact that the emoluments of the scorer would revolve more around 20 M€ annually. Finally, the commissions would be much less extravagant than announced. Thus, the player’s father would not have received 30 M€, but 15 M€ (which is already very good!) and Mino Raiola’s agency would have received the same amount. And not 50 M€…
