Well yeah, but that's how Dortmund got him so cheap in the first place. He never would have signed for them without this guarantee.
Apologies.. I read it as his release clause with City was 65M! PhewThat's the release clause
And I think it is €65m not £££'s
Borussia Dortmund CONFIRM Erling Haaland has been released to 'take care of personal matters'.In addition, SPORT1 revealed that Haaland was keen to have clarity on his future before this Saturday's final home game against Hertha Berlin, so he has an opportunity to say goodbye to home supporters.
I mentioned this before as an example of how the media treat Haaland like he's some Argentinian 16 year old who will struggle to adapt. He's English. He was born in Leeds and lived between Norway and England almost his entire life. In fact he's literally lived in Manchester before on a part time basis. He grew up a City fan and there's tons of pictures of him as a kid in City shirts and at City games and playing football in City kits.
It's an excellent example of the bias in the media. If a kid born 40 miles away from the Nou Camp and supported Barca his whole life and had a former Barca captain as a Dad then all we'd hear about is how romantic it would be that he's going to Barca. Instead he's an injury prone drug addict who is coming for the money before he goes to Real Madrid.
