Manchester City would like to offer Erling Haaland a new contract, writes Football Insider. The English giants are eager to sit down with the 22-year-old Norwegian and extend and upgrade his current contract at the same time. In this way, Man City hopes to keep Haaland out of the hands of Real Madrid.
Haaland signed a contract until the summer of 2027 at Man City last summer and in that contract the forward had a release clause included. Reports claimed that the clause was set at 175 million euros and it would become active in the summer of 2024. There are several rumours the clause has already been removed from the contract, but some claim that City want to use the new contract negotiations to exclude the clause once and for all.
According to Football Insider, Haaland is currently very happy at City and he has told the club he would be open to extend his current contract beyond 2027. One thing that remains to be seen is whether Haaland still wants a release clause added to the contract that could become active in the future. The forward has played 32 league games for City this season, scoring 34 league goals.
