Erling Haaland reportedly has a huge release clause in his Manchester City contract which Paris Saint-Germain can afford.
Man City this week confirmed the £51million signing of Haaland from Borussia Dortmund in one of the most seismic transfers of the past few seasons. The Premier League leaders came out on top to sign the 21-year-old phenomenon despite facing competition from Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, PSG and Barcelona.
City were able to sign Haaland, one of the most prolific strikers on the planet, for an astonishingly low fee due to a release clause in his contract. And it appears Haaland’s representatives have once again implemented a release clause in his new City deal which could see him leave in similar fashion.
Reports in Germany on Thursday claimed Haaland’s City contract includes a £128million release clause. While that sum is far greater than what City paid, it is believed to be lower than the figure actually agreed between the Norwegian and his new club.
That means the Premier League title hopefuls would stand to make an enormous profit if Haaland is sold down the line, with The Telegraph reporting his new release clause to be between £128-£170million.

One of the few clubs that could muster up such a jaw-dropping figure are French giants PSG. The Ligue 1 champions were keen to sign Haaland ahead of Kylian Mbappe’s potential departure on a free transfer this summer but lost out to City.
PSG have a history of signing superstar players for huge sums of money. They broke the world record for transfer fees by signing Neymar for £198million in 2017, before dropping £163million on Kylian Mbappe a year later.
