Erling Haaland signs staggering new deal worth £400,000 per WEEK – but it’s not with Man City

MANCHESTER CITY striker Erling Haaland is reportedly on the verge of signing a lucrative boot deal with Nike.

The 22-year-old joined City in a £51million transfer from Borussia Dortmund last summer.

He immediately became one of the club’s top earners upon his arrival, taking £375,000 per-week.

But now he is set to earn even more with Nike lining up a new lucrative sponsorship deal.

According to The Athletic, the American sportswear brand has been eager to tie Haaland down to a new deal.

His previous one expired at the end of January, so Puma and Adidas entered the race to sign him.

But the Norway international has decided to stay with Nike.

The Oregon-based company, which also sponsors the likes of Kevin De Bruyne, Phil Foden, Harry Kane, Robert Lewandowski and Cristiano Ronaldo, has offered him and his team a £20m package.

Haaland made his competitive debut for Man City in August, but he has already established himself as the Premier League’s most prolific goal-scorer.

He has netted 27 times in 24 league games so far this season, meaning he is the clear frontrunner in the race for the golden boot.


The striker is also on track to smash the Premier League golden boot record which is currently held by Andy Cole and Alan Shearer.

Cole set the benchmark at the end of the 1993/94 campaign before Shearer levelled the tally in 1995.
