Rafaela Pimenta, the agent to Manchester City’s Erling Haaland, has said the player must be protected from speculations over his release clause at the Premier League club.
Despite the fact Haaland only joined City in the summer, there’s been speculation regarding a clause in his contract. Which would be activated in 2024, and he has been linked with a move to Real Madrid.
But Pimenta refrained from speaking about any such clause and even labelled it ‘exaggerated news’.
Speaking to Marca, Pimenta said: “You have to do it [ask the question about the release clause] and it is very interesting.
“If we don’t say anything, surely something is interpreted and if we say something, too. As a lawyer, I know that I can’t say anything, but I also know that if I don’t say it, they will say it.
“It’s a very nice thing [the rumours], but I hope there aren’t too many. I understand the attention, the curiosity that arouses. It’s the novelty. Curiosity is normal, but I hope with Erling, when there are no things to say, they don’t make them up. This is something that is happening. They look for easy clicks. There is exaggerated news.”
