To stave off prospective interest from Real Madrid and Saudi Arabia, Manchester City are prepared to extend the contract of their productive striker Erling Haaland.

The Daily Star says that Erling Haaland is expected to be offered a salary in the neighbourhood of £600,000 per week. Haaland is coming off a hat-trick in Saturday’s victory over FulhaThethe English champions will stop at nothing to keep their forward on the pitch.

This summer, Saudi Arabian clubs exercised their financial muscles, attracting several high-profile players to clubs other than the Premier League.

Real Madrid are searching for a replacement for Karim Benzema after the player from France himself left for Saudi Arabia. Even though Jude Bellingham had a strong start, Los Blancos will undoubtedly be monitoring Haaland’s condition.

If Manchester City’s ambitions materialise, the 23-year-old may be in the queue for yet another huge payoff. Haaland is currently on international service and is expected to participate in Norway’s upcoming matches against Jordan and Georgia.

According to The Daily Star, the Premier League’s elite clubs are getting ready to increase their wage by 60% to £600,000 per week.

The English club will give Erling Haaland new conditions to extend his stay through 2027 despite the fact that he currently has a contract with them through that year.

The incredibly gifted centre-forward dominated the Premier League after moving to the Citizens from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

His side won the European triple last season thanks in large part to the astounding 52 goals he scored in 53 games.

Along the way, the Norwegian international shattered a number of records, including the most goals ever scored in an English Premier League season.

Haaland has had an incredible start to the new season, scoring six goals in just four games.

In the 23-year-old’s 5-1 victory over Fulham on Saturday, he scored his fifth hat-trick in the Premier League.

City wants to prevent him from being persuaded to sign with Real Madrid or move to Saudi Arabia, therefore they are providing him an additional, more lucrative contract.
