Haaland’s agent and father ’block’ Man City move with €70 million request

The saga of Erling Haaland’s transfer seemed to have finally caught speed last month when Real Madrid and Manchester City were said to be the only two candidates capable of landing the striker. However, the progress has once again hit a roadblock after that.

According to reports from Bild via Diario AS, the reason for stalled talks between the parties is a surplus condition from the player’s representatives.

Mino Raiola and the player’s father, Alf Inge, are said to be asking for an extra €70 million as personal bonuses for completing Haaland’s transfer. This new demand has seen Manchester City hesitate and stall talks.

The Premier League side are willing to put in a total of €350 million in the form of bonuses, termination clause and salary to bring the striker home. However, they are not willing to pay the additional amount commanded by his environment.

Haaland prefers a move to Madrid but is not a fan of the idea of waiting a season to secure the move. The Norweigan international is keen to make a move this summer and start a new chapter in his story.

Whether Los Blancos are willing to shell out the extra money this window remains to be seen, but Haaland’s preference for the Spanish side gives them a slight edge. At the moment, the race for the young star is still unpredictable.

Though Dortmund remain hopeful of renewal, that ship seems to have sailed. A decision from the player is expected in the next two weeks, and Los Blancos will have to be on their feet to ensure that they steal the deal.

    Bored of it all now, I hope Manchester City doesn’t sign him now, we already have Julian Alvarez arriving in the summer and can find another gem for far less. Haaland has injury issues as well. Let Real Madrid have him.

    To many muscle injuries in a short term isn’t a good sign. I think City should pull out and find another striker. The club is crazy to allow these shark’s to be demanding this kind of money. Where will it end.?

    Sign Erling Haaland with extravagant wages of £600,000 a week is too much that means every Manchester City team member will want high wages , not good

    Definitely not worth the money for the risk being taken, far to many injuries all ready for a young player, just greed on behalf of his agent and father.
    I don’t see him as a team player the way that Pep plays and it could destroy the teams rhythm.

    Got to he cheaper elsewhere. These very expensive signings don’t always work out. Look at Lukaku, Ronaldo & even Grealish, has he been worth £100m so far?
    Spending that kind of money will unsettle the team & break the spirit they have built under Pep.

Real Madrid offered the chance to sign Brazilian striker, one of 4-5 names on radar

There is no secret that Real Madrid might consider a move for a new striker in the coming summer. With Karim Benzema slowly nearing the end of his career, the club are looking for a viable alternative ahead of the new season.

Carlo Ancelotti has been left impressed by the performances of Rodrygo in the centre forward position. But the club could still use the services of a more recognised option in the number nine position.

The Spanish giants are reportedly assessing La Liga for a potential low-cost option. But they are also open to looking through in other leagues, in their bid to add more depth in the attacking department.

To that end, Fabrizio Romano claims Real Madrid are eyeing a swoop for Roberto Firmino. The Liverpool star has become the latest player to be shortlisted by Los Blancos, with his current contract at Liverpool expiring at the end of the season.

Formerly of TSG Hoffenheim, Firmino has a stellar track record of performing in Europe. He has scored 110 goals in 361 competitive matches during his time at Liverpool, winning the Premier League and the Champions League title.

A centre forward by trade, Roberto is known for his tactical flexibility and the ability to shift into wider areas to build up the player.

It makes him an appealing target for Real Madrid, who would prefer a versatile striker in their ranks that can not only provide cover for Benzema but also the likes of Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo.

Real Madrid, though, are yet to hold any discussions with Roberto Firmino just yet. He has just been added to the list of targets and one would expect the Spanish giants to make a move once the season is over and the player becomes a free agent.
