What does Haaland’s release clause removal mean for his potential candidates?

Haaland's release clause

It is widely known that Erling Haaland moved from Borussia Dortmund to Man City in search of a more competitive league. He has the ability to be one of the best players in the world, a plan that he has already set in motion, scoring 32 times in the Premier League.

But what is the problem? The contract he signed during his arrival in Manchester last summer includes a 150 million pounds release clause, which would have become active in the summer of 2024. The team wants him to stay a Citizen for a long time in the future, leading them to erase the release clause entirely. City is desperate to keep him at the Etihad and is ready to offer him a completely new contract without any release clause whatsoever.

But everything happens for a reason. Many argued that his current contract was entirely connected to Pep Guardiola’s presence in England. The Spanish head coach extended his deal until 2025, meaning that Haaland can stay at least another two seasons. His manager stated that Haaland can write history during this Premier League campaign, as he is just three goals behind the league’s all-time goalscoring record in a single season (Alan Shearer found the net on 34 occasions during 1994/1995).

While everyone in the British club wants to persuade him to be a valuable member, there is always the fear that he would decide to prove his value elsewhere. His father and a former Man City player Alf-Inge stated that Erling can move his talents to the other major European teams in the future, staying just a couple of years in every single one of them. Bayern Munich and Real Madrid are always the next on the line to secure his signature.

Having no release clause means that Man City will be in a tough position if he declares to leave the team a season or two from now. It remains to be seen what he will choose to do in the forthcoming months. Keeping him satisfied may be a major blow for the English club in the future. Man City hopes that Real Madrid and the other potential successors will need more than just 150 million pounds to make him move away from the Etihad Stadium, but his preferences will always remain a secret, ready to shake up things in the market.
