Norwegian football player, Erling Haaland, is set to become the first and best-paid player in the Premier League if he agrees to Manchester City’s bumper deal.
The new contract is expected to be worth £500,000 a week, according to reports.
Halland currently earns £375,000 per week, putting him equally at the top of the Premier League’s best-paid stars, along with teammate Kevin De Bruyne and Man United shot-stopper David de Gea.
The 22-year-old’s performance has seen him linked with Real Madrid, who are believed to be keen on landing him in the summer of 2024.
The player’s current deal lasts until 2027.
However, at the end of the season, Man City would be negotiating a new deal with Haaland to extend that by a year as part of the proposals to maintain Haaland’s services despite Real Madrid’s interest in him.
