According to a report from The Athletic, Manchester City are set to offer superstar Erling Haaland a new contract to wade off interest from Real Madrid.

Haaland signed for Manchester City only last summer, but has already been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, who are said to be plotting to sign the Norwegian hitman in 2024 to replace Karim Benzema.

It had been previously reported that Haaland has a release clause worth £150 million in his contract which would become active in 2024.

However, The Athletic states that the clause is no longer valid as it was related to the future of manager Pep Guardiola. With the head coach renewing his contract at the Etihad recently, the £150 million exit clause in Haaland’s contract has been removed automatically.

And, now, the Premier League champions wish to further secure his long-term future at the club by handing him a new contract.

The report further adds that Haaland has always had the ambition of moving to the Santiago Bernabeu. However, at this point, the 22-year-old Norwegian is very happy at Manchester City and feels that he is at the right club to continue his development and progression.

It is also claimed that the former Borussia Dortmund ace is delighted by City keeping a series of promises they had made, one of which was to look after him physically after the injury issues he had faced in Germany.

So, even though Real Madrid continue to lurk, Manchester City believe that Haaland would be open to talks over a new deal. It is not new for them to offer extensions to players within their first year at the club – they have already done it with the likes of Ederson, Ruben Dias, and Julian Alvarez.

In 40 matches this season, Haaland has already plundered 47 goals, breaking several records along the way. The Norwegian’s current contract at City runs until 2027 and the club now want to offer him an extension to keep him away from Real Madrid’s clutches.

In what is starting to become an alarmingly common occurrence, a set of Barcelona fans were spotted hurling abusive chants towards Real Madrid superstar Vinicius Jr.

Barça will be facing PSG in the UEFA Champions League quarterfinal today in less than an hour and in the lead-up to the game, a section of the Catalans’ supporters were seen chanting “Vinicius, die” on the streets.

It is not the first time this has happened, with Vinicius being constantly targeted by not only Barcelona fans but supporters of a number of other La Liga clubs.

In fact, last month, Barcelona fans were seen hurling the same chants before their UEFA Champions League Round of 16 tie against Napoli.

The same had happened outside Estadi Olimpic Lluis Companys in Montjuic prior to the Clasico in October last year.

Moreover, this past weekend, a Mallorca fan at Son Moix directed racist abuse towards Vinicius’ Real Madrid teammate, Aurelien Tchouameni.

It is shocking and embarrassing that these incidents continue to occur. It remains to be seen if any action is taken by the concerned authorities against those involved.
