Manchester City's prime striker target and Borussia Dortmund star Erling Haaland would cost the club a total transfer package of around €300 million, according to an exclusive report by the Sun this week. 

Following the news of Sergio Agüero's departure at the end of the season, the rumours surrounding Erling Haaland and a potential move to Manchester City have intensified in recent days

And the latest reports from England claim that the Norwegian forward wants to become the highest paid Premier League player ever. 

Alongside the €150 million fee it would take to bring Erling Haaland to the Etihad Stadium, the latest reports suggest that the player is to demand a wage package in excess of €600,000 a week - around €153 million over a potential five-year contract.

That would take the total package of the deal to approximately €300 million - an extremely high investment.

Erling Haaland's superstar agent Mino Raiola, said only yesterday during an exclusive interview with the Athletic that he has firmly put his previous clashes with Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola behind him - suggesting that their history would not be a problem during any potential negotiations. 

With that being said however, the 20-year-old is claimed to speak mainly to his dad and former Manchester City player, Alfie Haaland, to decide his future career moves.
