Pep Guardiola denies Real Madrid clause in Erling Haaland contract.
Erling Haaland became the first player in the Premier League to score a hat-trick in three consecutive home games.
The Norwegian signed a five-year contract with Man City and according to rumours, there is a clause that would allow him to sign for Real Madrid.
But Pep Guardiola has denied such a clause in the Norwegian’s contract.
“It’s not true, he doesn’t have a specific release clause to join Real Madrid. It’s not true, it’s just rumors, people talking and that’s something we can’t control. The most important thing is that he adapted so well and I believe he’s happy here. Nobody knows what will happen in the future, but he’s happy now,” said Guardiola after City’s win against Copenhaguen.
“I have the feeling he [Haaland] is happy here. We tried with him and all of them, the people who stayed here and made them happy. It is the most important thing. In the end, what’s going to happen in the future? Who knows it? Nobody knows it. What’s important is he’s happy and settled perfectly and incredibly loved by everyone. It is the most important thing,” Guardiola added.
