Haaland To Become First £1m-A-Week Footballer In His New Club

Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland could become the first £1million-a-week footballer with agent Mino Raiola reportedly looking to secure a mega-deal for the 20-year-old.

Haaland has been linked to plenty of European giants this summer with Manchester United, Barcelona, and Manchester City among those keen.

Though the Mirror report Mino Raiola plans to make the Dortmund ace the first £1m-a-week players, limiting the clubs who may be able to afford the Norwegian.

It’s claimed that only Manchester City, Real Madrid and PSG would be able to finance those wages.

The Mirror add that Premier League clubs City, Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester United have been warned any deal for Haaland will be the biggest in football history.

A huge transfer fee is expected while Raiola is set to demand high personal terms for the Norway international.

Though the Mirror add that any deal could be one of the most complex contracts ever given the global digital opportunities and commercial deals that could follow.
