A deal to sign Erling Haaland could end up costing at least a ridiculous €350 million in total, it has been claimed.
The Borussia Dortmund sensation is arguably the most in-demand player in world football at the moment, with a plethora of European clubs in the queue to sign him.
After scoring 70 goals in 69 appearances for Dortmund, the Norwegian is expected to leave for pastures new this summer.
But it could prove to be one of the most expensive transfers of all time to pull off, according to AS.
Haaland will likely cost around €100 million in terms of a transfer fee and then top of that, his salary demands are for €25 million net per season and subsequently €50 million gross.
A five-year contract is what he and agent Mino Raiola are after, meaning €250 million gross wages overall.
Then of course there's the commission fee to Raiola. The Dutch superagent received €14 million when he negotiated a £17.1 million deal to take Haaland from Red Bull Salzburg to Dortmund in 2020.
His dad, former Manchester City and Leeds player Alf-Inge, was paid €7 million. Raiola's figure will be much higher in Haaland's next move, irrespective of his destination.
Chelsea, Manchester United, Chelsea, Bayern Munich, Juventus, Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool are just some of the big clubs said to be interested in Haaland.
He was heavily linked with a £150 million move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window, but the European champions decided to bring Romelu Lukaku back to Stamford Bridge for £97.5 million.
Asked about the mooted transfer fee during Dortmund's training camp in July, Haaland said: "Before yesterday I hadn't spoken with my agent [for] one month.
"So you have the answer. I hope it's only rumours because it's a lot of money for a person.
"First of all I have three years left on my contract.
"I'm enjoying my time here. But of course the trophy was important because that's what I want."
