Manchester City are reportedly preparing a new contract offer for star striker Erling Haaland. This was after a release clause in his current deal was removed.

With a clause in his contract allowing him to leave for £150m in the summer of 2024. This was if a club met the terms and he wanted to make the move.
However, the clause was cancelled after Pep Guardiola renewed his contract with the club until 2025. City are now eager to extend Haaland’s contract to reflect his excellent first season in English football. During which he has scored an impressive 47 goals in 40 games in all competitions.

It is unclear whether similar release clauses will come into play later in his time at the club. The exact terms of his contract are shrouded in secrecy. However, City is known for agreeing new deals with players who have excelled in their debut campaigns, such as Julian Alvarez, Ederson, and Ruben Dias.
