According to reports, Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has two release clauses in his contract. The first clause, worth €200 million, will come into effect in the summer of 2024 and is only valid for clubs outside of the Premier League.

The release clause will decrease each year after it is activated in 2024. Haaland also reportedly has a second release clause, a minimum fee of €175 million, that will be activated in the summer of 2025 and will decrease again in 2026. These clauses, which have not been publicly confirmed, mean that Manchester City will be powerless to prevent Haaland from leaving if a foreign club matches the specified amounts on the specified dates. Haaland’s agent has described the release clause in his contract as a “mystery.”

The Norwegian striker signed a five-year contract with Manchester City in 2022, becoming the club’s highest-paid player alongside Kevin De Bruyne. The reported release clauses have added to speculation that Haaland plans to join Real Madrid after spending two or three years at Manchester City.
