Two and a half years after his arrival, Erling Braut Hland chose to leave Borussia Dortmund to join Manchester City. A transfer of the Norwegian striker which will cost much less than expected for the English club.
Hland will play Manchester City.
Erling Braut Hland (21) has chosen. After fueling transfer rumors in recent months, the Norwegian striker, courted by the biggest European clubs, including Paris Saint-Germain, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona, decided to leave Borussia Dortmund, where he has been evolving for almost two and a half years, for Manchester City. An expected move that will cost much less than expected for the English champion.
Hland is 60 M€
Indeed, the English club will finally spend a mouthful of bread to recover the Nordic striker. While there was talk of a transaction up to 75 million euros, the amount of his release clause, which could have increased to 90 million euros depending on the personal objectives achieved this season, Marca and Sky Sports evoke a final transfer of 60 million euros. A ridiculous price for such a promising and demanded player.
By way of comparison, eight players in the current squad cost more than the Scandinavian: Jack Grealish (€117.5m), Kevin De Bruyne (€76m), Ruben Dias (€68m), Riyad Mahrez (€67.8m), Joao Cancelo (€65m), Aymeric Laporte (€65m), Raheem Sterlng (€63.7m) and Rodri (€62.7m). An arrival that will cost more than those of Benjamin Mendy (57 M€), John Stones (55.6 M€), Kyle Walker (52.7 M€) or even Bernardo Silva (50 M€).
Lower salary and commissions
In terms of salary, Hland will clearly not complain. But he will not receive 30, 40 or 50 million euros per year as many media have mentioned in recent months. And for good reason, the future Citizen will recover 20 million euros per season, a priori until June 2027. Important moluments but in the average of the best Premier League players much more confirmed than him.
Regarding the commissions paid to the player’s representatives, they are also much lower than advertised. The player’s father, Alf-Inge Hland will pocket 15 million euros, as will Mino Raiola’s agency, which has died in recent days. All in all, it’s a global transfer estimated at around 190 million euros to recover the most promising 9 of his generation. Almost a mouthful for Manchester City.
