Erling Haaland is set to cost a buying club a hell of a lot more than his £63 million transfer release clause, with details of what his agents will want paying.
Haaland is likely to leave Borussia Dortmund this summer and there could be a huge fight between all of Europe's top clubs to sign the Norwegian.
According to one report, the striker doesn't want to move to the Premier League, despite the kind of money the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United would no doubt offer him.
Another report claims that Barcelona have already got an agreement with Mino Raiola that they can sign the 21-year-old, as long as they can afford him, which isn't exactly a guarantee.
As far as how much he'll cost, there's been talk of a release clause for some time but that doesn't include how much Raiola and his dad, former City player Alf Inge Haaland, will want paying.
According to L'Equipe, via Get French Football News, Raiola wants around £17 million to line his pockets for getting the move across the line, and Haaland senior wants the same.
The former Red Bull Salzburg would also want between £20 and £25 million-a-year in wages on a six year deal, in order to pick his new team, which is roughly £480,000-a-week for six years.
That means altogether a club would be paying around £250 million for the first six years of having Haaland at the club, and it's likely those wages could be improved if an extension is signed part way through the contract.
The report also claims that the Bundesliga side still harbour hopes that they might yet be able to keep the striker at Signal Iduna Park.
His current deal expires in 2024 but the club want him to sign a new deal now, probably in order to also up the price on his release clause, and if he doesn't then they'll have to sell him for £63 million in the summer.
Haaland's record in Germany has been ridiculous since he left Salzburg, with the striker scoring 76 goals in 74 appearances in all competitions.
In the Bundesliga alone, the forward has bagged 53 times in 53 games and, factoring in his age as well, it's no wonder so many clubs are after him.
His future is also being linked to that of Kylian Mbappe, with the PSG forward's contract expiring this summer, and Real Madrid reportedly want both.
Haaland could also realistically be a replacement for the World Cup winner, something the Parisiens considered when Real made a bid for their striker in August.
