Erling Haaland set to rake in staggering Man City bonuses as £51.4m ace targets clean sweep of add-ons in debut season

ERLING HAALAND could land a £5million jackpot if he helps Manchester City firefighters treble.

The change of the record striker from Borussia Dortmund last summer brought with it a number of success-related lucrative strokes of luck.

And the champion’s incredible season means the 22-year-old Norwegian will amass a pot of gold to add to a string of winners’ medals.

Haaland is believed to be set to amass around £1million each for winning the Premier League and Champions League trophies.

He would pick up a further £350,000 if City beat neighbors United in their first-ever Manchester FA Cup final next month.

Haaland will also fill his boots if he succeeds at various season-ending awards – some of which are already in the bag.

He has already set a new record for Premier League goals in one season and will finish as top scorer – a similar amount to his FA Cup bonanza.

Individual awards like PFA Player of the Year, Football Writers’ Player of the Year, and being named PFA Team of the Year bring other whopping top-ups.

City have similar incentives for Kevin De Bruyne, who prefers to dish out big bonuses for success and keep his payroll costs under control.

Haaland is also a serious rival to World Cup winner Lionel Messi for this year’s Ballon d’Or – awarded to the best player in the world – which Etihad insiders claim is worth another £1million payout.


City paid the Norwegian striker a bargain £51.4m and wages of £375,000 a week if he appeared in 60 per cent of games – something he has done.

SunSport announced last month that Haaland’s camp is open to discuss an improved deal, adding another 12 months to finalize their agreement by the summer of 2028.
