Borussia Dortmund ace Erling Haaland is after at least £30 million per year in salary when he moves on to pastures new as Premier League trio Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea are all thought to be interested in his services.
Haaland is expected to leave Signal Iduna Park next summer, but his next destination is far from certain. United, City and Chelsea are all in the mix, but Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Dortmund's Bundesliga rivals Bayern Munich are also all tracking his progress.
The 21-year-old can leave the Black and Yellow once his release clause of £63.4 million (€75 million) release clause is triggered.
Representatives of the Haaland camp are expected to earn themselves a considerable pay-out by whichever club does cough up and prise him away from Dortmund. But Haaland is also after his share of the money, according to ESPN.
The 21-year-old reportedly commands at least £500,000 from his next employers, whoever they might be. His current wage package is believed to be £141,000 - quite a lot lower than his latest demands.
Haaland broke through into the senior game under Ole Gunnar Solskjær, back when he was in charge of Norwegian side FK Molde. The young striker was always seen as a future star of the senior game.
He first made international headlines when he scored nine goals in a single U20 FIFA World Cup game for Norway back in 2019 - and then moved to FC Salzburg in Austria, where he netted 29 goals in just 27 appearances.
In the 2019/20 transfer window, Haaland rejected a move to Manchester United in favour of joining Borussia Dortmund. He has since scored a remarkable 70 goals in 69 games for the Black and Yellow. He recently said his aim is to continue having more goals than games played, for "at least the next three seasons."
Haaland - who already has 12 international goals - is not likely to heavily impact his chances of a big-money move despite these hefty latest wage demands. None of the clubs following his progress are expected to shy away from a deal in response to his £30 million quote.
It's a compliment to his robot-like consistency and his ruthlessness in front of goal at the very highest level.
