Manchester City found the missing piece to their attacking puzzle in the form of Erling Haaland, a force to be reckoned with. Following the departure of the iconic Sergio Kun Aguero, the "Citizens" embarked on a journey marked by experimentation, often playing without a traditional striker. However, Haaland's arrival has created havoc for the Premier League Defenders.

But just how valuable is Erling Haaland in the market? According to Transfermarkt, Haaland's market value is a staggering €170 million. This places him in an elite group of players, with the likes of Kylian Mbappé and Vinicius Junior, among the top 10 most valuable players in the world at present.

Interestingly, Manchester City managed to secure Haaland's services for a fee of "only" €60 million, which raised eyebrows given the earlier talks of a €75 million buyout clause. The intricacies of Borussia Dortmund's agreement to this lower sum remain shrouded in mystery.

As Haaland's transfer to City neared its finalization in May, there was much speculation about the financial aspects of the deal.

The footballing world learned that Haaland would be earning a hefty salary, with figures initially suggesting a weekly wage of £600,000—equivalent to over €30 million gross per year.

By way of comparison, Kevin De Bruyne, City's highest-paid player and one of the Premier League's top earners, commands a weekly wage of £375,000, roughly translating to €12 million net annually (or €22 million gross).

However, after the official announcement of the transfer, English media reported that Haaland had agreed to a salary identical to De Bruyne's. This revelation initially seemed surprising, given that Haaland was one of the most sought-after players globally at that time.

The key difference lies in the bonus structure, which is rather unique in Haaland's case.

According to The Daily Mail, a series of performance-based bonuses could see Haaland's weekly earnings soar to £865,000 (approximately €900,000) gross, translating to around €46 million gross per year or €24 million net annually.

Many news oulets also have granted that Haaland's market value might be around $1 Billion after he lifted the Treble with Manchester City.

How can Haaland fit into that Madrid team?

Well given Haaland's role in most of the clubs he has played there is no doubt that his position is as a centre forward, currently, that role is taken on by Karim Benzema who is 35 and proceeding towards the final years of his contract with Madrid.

Surely Madrid would be looking to replace Karim sooner or Later. As things stand Mbappe rejected Madrid last season for his beloved Paris club now can Haaland be what Real Madrid is looking for?

Absolutely there is no doubt that Real Madrid wouldn't be a perfect fit for Erling Haaland. He is a pure striker and midfielders Madrid posses will have no doubt that they will be looking up to Haaland whenever the opportunity arises.

But a team as versatile as Real Madrid it can easily fit a striker like Haaland into its system. Real Madrid's team is completely focused on the younger generation of players pressing might not be a problem for Madrid if Haaland couldn't do so.

Erling Haaland's current market value is between €150 million euros to €200 Million. Pep Guardiola is the sort of manager who would let any player walk out if he doesn't feel that player is happy.
