Erling Haaland: Did Real Madrid drop out because of a clause?
Erling Haaland is moving from BVB to Manchester City. Real Madrid also wanted to get him, but the royals did not like a contract clause.
As is well known, Manchester City had the best cards in poker for Erling Haaland. The second big favorite was Real Madrid, but Los Blancos are said to have withdrawn over a release clause demanded by the Haaland side.
According to the Spanish radio station Chain BE The late agent Mino Raiola is said to have demanded that the club include this in the amount of 150 million euros in the contract. In addition, she should become active from the second year, so that the striker would have a realistic chance of a change if things didn’t go as planned for him in sporting terms.
Get-out clause mandatory in Spain
However, Real President Florentino Perez vehemently rejected this. Such a costly investment is not in the realm of possibility if Haaland could leave the club again in the second year. Although it is compulsory according to labor law in Spain to agree on an exit clause, this is usually in utopian spheres, so that other clubs do not even have the chance to activate it.
It is currently unclear whether Haaland was also able to agree an exit clause with Manchester City.
