Erling Haaland has massive £175MILLION Man City transfer release clause – but it doesn’t apply to Premier League rivals | The Sun
11th October 2022

ERLING HAALAND has a £175million release clause in his Manchester City contract that will trigger in 2024, according to reports.

The Norwegian superstar has taken the Premier League by storm since joining City from Borussia Dortmund in the summer.

Haaland has bagged 20 goals in 12 competitive matches – already sparking interest from abroad.

Recent reports in Spain suggested that there is a "Madrid" clause in the 22-year-old's contract that would enable the Spanish giants to sign him from City.

This was denied by boss Pep Guardiola, who said: "It’s not true — he has no release clause for Real Madrid or any other team.

"It’s not true. What else can I say?"

According to The Athletic, however, there IS a release clause in his deal that will become active in 2024.

They claim that in the summer of 2024, clubs overseas will be able to sign Haaland for £175.5m.

Crucially, this clause will NOT apply to other Premier League clubs.

The report adds that the release clause fee will decrease as Haaland's contract then progresses.

Far from seeking an exit, however, Haaland is happy at the Etihad.

He earns more than £375,000 a week at City, a number that could rise even further should he eventually move… or pen a new deal.

Prior to the weekend's 4-0 victory over Southampton, in which Haaland scored his 20th of the season, Guardiola said: "Every press conference I have done this season — out of 50 questions, 45 are for Erling.

"For me, it is OK. But we are fortunate that the guys who are here accept it perfectly.

"There are other guys who would not like it. Guys who had won four or five Premier Leagues and yet all the talk was about Erling? They would not like it in other clubs.

"We don’t have that. This is why it is a joy to train these players."
