If ERLING HAALAND helps the team at the top of the league, Manchester City, win the Triple Crown, he could get $5 million.
The record-setting scorer made a lot of money from his accomplishments when he moved from Borussia Dortmund to Bayern Munich last summer.
Thanks to the winners’ great season, the 22-year-old Norwegian will add a pot of gold to his collection of winning awards.
Reports say that Haaland will get around £1 million for winning the Premier League and the Champions League.
If City wins the first all-Manchester FA Cup final next month and beats rival United, he would get an extra £350,000.
Haaland will also fill his shoes if he gets any of the end-of-season prizes, some of which he already has.
He will finish as the league’s top scorer and earn about as much as he did when he won the FA Cup. He has already broken the record for most goals scored in a season in the Premier League.
Individual awards that come with big bonuses include PFA Player of the Year, Football Writers’ Player of the Year, and being chosen for the PFA Team of the Year.
Kevin De Bruyne has similar benefits set up by City to reward his success and keep their pay costs in check.
Etihad sources also think that this year’s Ballon d’Or, which goes to the best player in the world and comes with an extra £1 million, will be between Haaland and World Cup hero Lionel Messi.
The Norwegian striker only cost City a small amount, $51.4 million. If he played in 60% of the games, which he has, he would make £375,000 per week.
Last month, SunSport said that Haaland’s team was ready to look into a better deal that would add a year to his contract, making it last until the summer of 2028.
