Admirers of Erling Haaland have been handed a boost with the Norwegian striker’s release clause reportedly falling to £150million in 2025.
Haaland’s representatives have made it commonplace in his recent contracts that release clauses are included and his deal with Man City is said to be no different.
Now, Spanish publication Marca have detailed how the second of two release clauses – the first of £172m triggered in 2024 – drops by £12m from 2025, opening the door to any potential suitors.

Haaland arrives as one of the signings of the summer in the Premier League and while this reported secondary release clause won’t kick in through until 2025, it will still keep suitors’ eyes peeled on his situation in Manchester.
Marca report that Haaland, who was represented by the late agent Mino Raiola, has become used to having release clauses in his deals.
There was a release clause in his deal to go from Red Bull Salzburg to Dortmund and City negotiated a sub-release clause deal to get him from Germany to England.
Haaland arrives in England as one of the most sought-after strikers in world football.
He took his game to the next level at Dortmund, finishing his career there scoring 83 goals in 87 games.

‘This is a proud day for me and my family,’ Haaland said when the deal was announced.
‘I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons.
‘You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me.
‘There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep is one of the greatest managers of all-time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil my ambitions.
‘I want to score goals, win trophies, and improve as a footballer and I am confident I can do that here.
‘This is a great move for me, and I can’t wait to get started in pre-season.’
