MANCHESTER CITY new boy Erling Haaland has a shock release clause allowing him to depart for just £128million in 2024.
City won the £51m race for Borussia Dortmund's Norway goal machine after he agreed what's thought to be a huge five-year contract.
But German outlet Bild say Haaland, 21, has an arrangement whereby he can leave the Etihad after just two years for €150m.
Social media reacted to the claim with 'shock' – one saying: "The only loser here is City. Crazy!"
The striker's Dortmund departurewas sealed this week after 85 goals in 88 games for the Bundesliga giants.
Those stats made him the world's most-wanted finisher in the world.
