Erling Haaland’s agent, Rafaela Pimenta, has fueled speculation about a release clause for the Norwegian at Manchester City.
“I always say that one of my priorities as an intermediary is to offer the player what I call ‘the key to the door’. I don’t like it when my player can’t decide freely,” Pimenta said in an interview with the spanish AS.
However, the agent avoided the specific question of an exit clause in the contract of the 22-year-old Norwegian. This is “difficult to answer,” says Pimenta. Ultimately, she is primarily concerned with the well-being of the player: “If you can’t be there tomorrow because you don’t like it, because they don’t pay you well or because your wife wants to live in Paris, then you go, right?”
Haaland only switched from Borussia Dortmund to the Citizens last summer for around 60 million euros. The striker is the undisputed top performer at the PL club – he scored 31 goals in 27 competitive games in 2022/23. His contract runs until 2027.
City coach Pep Guardiola had previously denied the existence of a clause in Haaland’s working paper.
