Erling Haaland jets to French Riviera for showdown talks with Mino Raiola as he closes in on Man City transfer

04/25/2022

ERLING HAALAND reportedly jetted to Monaco on Sunday to meet with agent Mino Raiola.

The striker is expected to join Manchester City this summer after it was claimed that he agreed a £500,000-a-week contract with Pep Guardiola's side.

With City set to trigger his £64million release clause, Haaland is believed to have flown out to the French Riviera for talks with Raiola, who lives in the Principality.

He is claimed to have attended a brief session with Dortmund on Sunday morning before jetting out.

According to German newspaper Ruhr Nachrichten, the purpose of the meeting was to finish finalising Haaland's future.

April 30 is reportedly the deadline to activate his release clause, as they are expected to do.

Haaland's £500k-a-week contract is set to make him the highest earner at City, eclipsing Kevin De Bruyne's £385k weekly package.
