Manchester City are preparing an unconventional offer for a key striker. Manchester City are preparing to make a big offer.

“City are ready to negotiate with Elling Holland, 23, to re-sign him,” ESPN reported on July 7. He still has some time left on his contract, but the club are keen to reward him for a sensational first season.”

As previously reported by the Daily Star, Holland’s current weekly wage is £375,000 ($624,000). Along with Kevin De Bruyne, 31, he is City’s highest paid player. If he were to sign a new contract with City, he would earn £600,000 a week. That’s the eighth-highest salary in the world among soccer players.

He was already promised a pay rise. When Holland joined City from Borussia Dortmund, he signed a contract until June 2027. In his first season, he became the Premier League’s top scorer. Under the terms of the clause, Holland was set to receive a 60.5% weekly pay rise. Holland scored a whopping 52 goals in all competitions in the 2022-23 season, leading City to their first treble in club history. 스포츠토토

He is set to receive an astronomical salary. Holland will see his salary jump from £19.5 million to £32.5 million if he re-signs.

The re-signing is expected to be formalized soon. According to ESPN, “Holland’s talks with City are far from over, but discussions are expected to conclude in the next two months.”

It is believed that a re-signing is highly likely. “Holland wanted to play for Real Madrid,” the outlet said, “but he’s happy at City. He will want to settle in the team. He will be willing to agree to new terms. He already has a contract with City until June 2027.”

It’s unlikely that the frontline will change for a while. Julian Alvarez, 23, who recently filled the void left by De Bruyne, is also under contract at City until 2028. According to ‘ESPN’, “Pep Guardiola has strongly denied reports of a move for Brighton & Hove Albion striker Evan Ferguson, 18. He is very happy with the performances of Alvarez and Holland.”
