Manchester City are ready to make Erling Haaland the highest-paid player in England, should he join from Borussia Dortmund.
As Sportsmail revealed last week, the champions are frontrunners in the race for the 21-year-old star forward. Personal terms have been discussed and it can now be disclosed that Haaland would become the Premier League’s top earner, with a salary in excess of £500,000 a week.
The staggering sum would push the Norway striker beyond the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo and City’s Kevin De Bruyne, who both pocket about £385,000 a week.
The Norwegian has a £63million release clause in his contract — a relatively low fee that means both his agent Mino Raiola and his ex-City midfielder father Alf-Inge are also set to earn massive payments, with a total outlay expected to be near £100m.
European giants Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid are also interested in Haaland, but there is a growing confidence that City are in the box seat for a striker who has 80 goals in 80 appearances for Dortmund.FOLLOW ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA
