The move would see Haaland become one of the highest paid players in world football, with his weekly wage rising from €425k to €570k.
Real Madrid want to sign Haaland next summer, but it remains to be seen whether they will be able to compete with Man City financially in order to entice the 22-year-old to the Spanish capital.
