Borrusia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland will command in excess of £825K per week for any club wishing to buy the player next summer.
Thats according to Bild journalist Christian Falk who has also confirmed that the player's agent Mino Raiola is also demanding £34 million for his part in thrashing out any deal that happens.
TRUE ✅ Mino Raiola demanded a wages of €50m/year for Erling Håland from @ChelseaFC this Summer, in addition to agents fees of €40m— Christian Falk (@cfbayern) August 25, 2021
As we reported yesterday, both Manchester club's are set to compete for the signature of the 21-year-old powerhouse who has scored 3 goals in as many games in a strong start to the Bundesliga campaign.
It is thought that Raiola is dangling the carrot for Europe's top clubs with - in terms of today's market - a low release clause for Haaland at just under £65 million.
But after Falk has revealed the small-print if you like, this may eliminate the amount of clubs that can compete for the Norwegian's signature.
Manchester United have shown how confident they are commercially of balancing a major signing against paying big wages. Cristiano Ronaldo is set to be paid over £500K a week yet the club will recuperate his total salary each year based on shirt sales, merchandise as well as a potential new training ground sponsor at the club's Carrington base.
United will hope that the player's admiration of fellow Norwegian Ole Gunnar Solskjear, who he has signed for previously at Molde, will be enough to tempt the player over the advances of Pep Guardiola's Manchester City. However, this is Haaland's dad's former club which could be a contributing factor to his decision.
United, the world's second most supported club, would benefit from a new wave of young supporters who are in awe of the Dortmund man, who's super hero presence and goalscoring exploits is bringing him a cult following.
After the ink had barely dried on Ronaldo's signature upon his return to Old Trafford, the club attracted 1 million new followers on Instagram.
The Glazer's , FFP rules permitting, you would think, will be willing to supplement Raiola's huge fee as even still, the overall figure of around £100 million for one of the hottest young properties in the game will be seen as a no brainer. The £825k hefty weekly wages will come down to how the player can help grow the club commercially, just as one of its own produced legends returns where he started in the coming weeks.
