One of the longest transfer poker in recent months has been history since Tuesday: Erling Haaland leaves Borussia Dortmund in summer and joins Manchester City. Real Madrid, which for a long time was a hot iron around the 21-year-old Norwegian, was empty. In Spain, one now wants to have revealed why a deal for the royal was ultimately not an option.
According to the positive experiences at BVB, Erling Haaland is said to have insisted on a contract model that is known only too well in Dortmund. Lu Martín from the Spanish radio station “Cadena Ser” wants to learn that.
Accordingly, Haaland and his now deceased consultant Mino Raiola have asked for a signature at Real Madrid that he can leave the club in the summer of 2024 for a fixed transfer of 150 million euros.
As a reminder: Haaland currently enables a similar agreement to say goodbye to BVB. However, the Dortmunders “only” collect around 75 million euros.
For Real Madrid’s President Florentino Pérez, however, such a scenario is not an option under any circumstances, the report says. Haaland’s entourage therefore received a “clear no”.
Mancity makes Haaland a top earner
In Spain, exit clause are mandatory, the clubs therefore often provide the contracts of their stars with incredible sums: DFB defender Antonio Rüdiger will allegedly only be available for 400 million euros after moving to Madrid, according to the Spanish newspaper “ABC also exists No players with a clause under 160 million euros.
It is not clear whether Haaland’s working paper at Manchester City contains such a clause. Ultimately, however, the striker decided to move to England and step into his father’s footsteps. Alf-Ling Haaland played for the blues from 2000 to 2003.
However, there should be more than a family gang behind the decision. On the one hand, Haaland is considered a great supporter of Mancity team manager Pep Guardiola, the international allegedly even demanded a Guardiola clause, on the other hand, Haaland is supposed to earn a whopping 20 million euros per season in Manchester and thus catch up with top earner Kevin de Bruyne. This reports “Carrusel Deportivo”.
