Ronaldo, Haaland, Lukaku: Premier League's 20 best-paid strikers

Erling Haaland is now the second best-paid striker in the Premier League

Manchester City have officially announced the signing of Erling Haaland.

“This is a proud day for me and my family,” Haaland told ManCity.com after completing the move.

“I have always watched City and have loved doing so in recent seasons. You can’t help but admire their style of play, it’s exciting and they create a lot of chances, which is perfect for a player like me.

“There are so many world-class players in this squad and Pep is one of the greatest managers of all-time, so I believe I am in the right place to fulfil my ambitions.

“I want to score goals, win trophies and improve as a footballer and I am confident I can do that here. This is a great move for me and I can’t wait to get started in pre-season.”

The Norwegian striker will earn £375,000-per-week at City, per Fabrizio Romano.

So Haaland is now the second best-paid striker in the Premier League.

He earns nearly double what Kane earns at Tottenham, while his wages also eclipse that of Werner and Lukaku’s at Chelsea.

The only player that earns more than Haaland is the legendary Ronaldo.

City are paying Haaland a lot of money but he’ll be worth every penny if he leads the club to Champions League glory in the 2022/23 season.
