Erling Haaland is reportedly the highest earner in the Premier League

Recent reports suggest that Erling Haaland reportedly earns close to a mind-boggling £900,000 per week at Manchester City. Pep Guardiola has also denied reports that the former Dortmund player has a release clause in his contract.

The Premier League has for many years been packaged as the best and toughest league in the world. It has turned out to be nothing other than a well-packaged commercial enterprise. The media in England usually refer to the French Ligue 1 and the Bundesliga as a farmer’s league. The arrival of Erling Haaland at Manchester City proves that the Premier League is the real farmer’s league.

The Norwegian striker, who will be absent from the World Cup as Norway failed to qualify, has turned the Premier League into his playground. Haaland has been knocking over defenders in the league like nine pins, scoring goals with reckless abandon. The performance of the Norwegian bomber begs the question, who can stop Haaland?

While Haaland has been doing his business on the pitch, investigations were ongoing to discover the worth of his contract at Manchester City. Recent revelations show that the former Russia Dortmund striker is a top earner at the Etihad and the Premier League at large.

Haaland’s astronomical earnings revealed

While at Borussia Dortmund, the talent of Erling Haaland was already evident to the world. The Norwegian striker was scoring goals with ease and had only the brilliance of Robert Lewandowski to blame for his inability to land the top-scorer prize in the Bundesliga. In the Premier League, Haaland is on course to erase several records.

Recent revelations suggest the former Dortmund forward is high earner at Manchester City. Sportsmail reports that Haaland is the highest-paid player in England. Man City reportedly pay the 22-year-old close to a staggering £900k-a-week due to a series of ‘substantial bonuses’ in his current deal.

While Haaland tied down a contract that sees him pocket a humungous amount, few players come close to what he earns. Teammate Kevin de Bruyne and Manchester United forward Cristiano Ronaldo are players who are also on high wages. Jadon Sancho and David de Gea are also high earners in the Premier league.

Guardiola denies the clause in Haaland’s contract

The performances of Erling Haaland have attracted more attention from all over Europe. The Norwegian striker allegedly has a clause in his contract that allows him to leave Man City for Real Madrid after two years. The news has circulated far and wide, but Pep Guardiola says there is no substance to the rumours.

The former Barcelona manager claims that no such clause exists and dismissed reports of Real Madrid already considering triggering the clause. The reports claim that the forward has a release clause of £174m in his City deal, but Guardiola was unequivocal in his denial of its existence.

Haaland has scored 14 goals in eight Premier League games and another five in three Champions League matches. Haaland was signed by the Citizens this summer for an initial £51m, which could rise to £85.5m. The Norwegian striker became the first player in Premier League history to score hat-tricks in three successive home games.

Manchester City are unbeaten this season with six wins and two draws in the Premier League. They are, however, second on the table behind league leaders Arsenal.
