Erling Haaland market value – 2023



Manchester City got a “beast” in attack, something they haven’t had in recent years. After several seasons of wandering, playing without a classic striker, after the departure of Sergio Kun Aguero, “Citizens” manager Pep Guardiola experimented a lot, playing without the “real nine”, but this summer Norwegian Erling Haaland arrived. It seems that it will be difficult to stop this season’s superior team from the Etihad.


This summer, Haaland was in slightly less demand than Mbappe, but there was certainly no club that did not want him: Real Madrid, Bayern, Barcelona, Chelsea, Manchester United… All the biggest. But City beat the competition very easily. Apparently, the player’s desire played a major role in the decision as he was most attracted to City’s project and role in Pep Guardiola’s team. At least that’s what his father said.

Erling Haaland market value?

According to figures from Transfermarkt, Haaland is worth €170 milion euros. The Norwegian along with Kylian Mbappé and Vinicius Junior are among the top 10 most valuable players in the world right now.


City then bought Haaland for “only” 60.000.000 euros, which seemed strange to many because months ago there was talk of a buyout clause worth 75.000.000 euros. How and why Borussia agreed to that sum has never been clearly explained… Nor whether the clause even existed.


When at the beginning of May Haaland decided definitively, and then he signed for Citizens, many were interested in how much money City had to allocate for his contract. Given that the public on the Island expresses salaries and contracts of footballers in gross sums, at that time there was talk of a salary of 600.000 pounds per week, which is over 30.000.000 euros gross per year. In translation: According to those figures, Haaland’s net income was around 15.000.000 euros per year. For example, by far the highest-paid player of City and one of the highest paid in the league, Kevin De Bruyne earns 375.000 pounds per week, which translates to about 12.000.000 euros net per year (22.000.000 euros gross).

However, after the official transfer, the English media claimed that Haaland had agreed to an identical salary to De Bruyne. This was surprising at first because the Norwegian was one of the two most sought-after players in the world at that moment.


Haaland’s fixed salary is in the range of De Bruyne’s, but the catch is in the bonuses, which are made in a specific way. The Daily Mail claims that it’s a bunch of simple bonuses with which Haaland will surely “go out” to 865.000 pounds per week (900.000 euros) gross, which translates to around 46.000.000 euros gross per year. That is about 24.000.000 net per season. Well, that seems to be Haaland’s real salary in the end and it actually makes sense considering the market situation and his value which is 170 million euros at the moment. And it could be even bigger if he continues at this pace, given that he scored 21 goals in 16 appearances in the Premier League only, and there are certainly “normal” bonuses related to various top scorer titles, breaking various records, placing in the race for the Golden Ball, team trophies…


With this salary, the Norwegian takes the place at the top of the list of the highest-paid players in the Premier League and one of the highest-paid in the world.
