Haaland makes £130k wage demand as Man Utd chase January transfer :-ZOLEX
Manchester United transfer target Erling Braut Haaland is reportedly demanding a huge wage increase to make his next move.
The striker joined Red Bull Salzburg from Norwegian club Molde just last year, signing a deal worth €1million per year.
But his stock has sky rocketed after a remarkable run of 28 goals in 22 games for the Austrian club in all competitions.
With United and Bundesliga clubs Borussia Dortmund and RB Leipzig said to be leading the race for his signature, German newspaper Bild report Haaland has upped his demands.
He is now reportedly asking for at least €8m a year, with Leipzig currently refusing to go over the €5m mark.
If those demands are true, then Haaland’s wage would equate to around £130k per week, making him one of United’s highest earners.
That appears to suit the biggest clubs chasing Haaland, such as United, Juventus and Real Madrid, who have the financial clout to take the risk of spending such big-money on a teenager still unproved in the major European leagues despite his Champions League success.
Haaland is in the process of deciding his future along with agent Mino Raiola, who will certainly look to take a hefty sum from any deal.
