Man City star striker Erling Haaland has officially signed a lucrative contract, providing him with millions of euros in income per season.
Moving to Man City from the beginning of the season, Erling Haaland immediately became the second highest-paid striker in the Premier League. According to L’Equipe, the Norwegian striker is receiving about 20 million pounds/year in unpaid salary, second in the entire tournament after Kevin De Bruyne (21 million pounds/year).
However, in the future the player could earn twice that amount by signing a sponsorship deal with sportswear brand Nike.
Recently, Erling Haaland has just made a commitment to Nike for 10 years worth a total of 227 million euros. This could be the biggest sponsorship deal in football history.
Haaland worked with Nike when he was 14 years old, and that sponsorship deal ended in January 2022. Since then, Haaland has competed with Puma (Ultras), adidas (X Speedportals) and Nike (Mercurial Vapors).
Now Haaland has decided to choose Nike to follow the path of Brazilian idol Ronaldo Nazario, who played for Real Madrid and Barcelona. With this contract, he earns 22.7 million euros per year.
Nike added Haaland to the list of sponsorships for world football stars such as Kylian Mbappe, Marcus Rashford, Harry Kane, Kevin De Bruyne, Cristiano Ronaldo, Alexia Putellas, Ada Hegerberg, Leah Williamson, Megan Rapinoe or Sam Kerr.
