Erling Haaland Net Worth, Biography & More
Erling Haaland has become one of the most talked-about footballers in the world, and after a record-breaking campaign for Manchester City last term, it’s unsurprising. The Norwegian star made headlines with a number of exceptional performances that saw him rack up a whopping 52 goals in as many games en route to the second-ever treble in the history of English football. Besides his excellent soccer skills, the former Borussia Dortmund man is also known for his charming personality, which leaves many of his fans curious to know more about him.
Erling Haaland was born in Leeds, England, on July 21, 2000. His father, Alf-Inge Haaland, is a former Norwegian footballer who played for Manchester City and Leeds United. His mother, Gry Marita Braut, is a former heptathlete who represented Norway in the Olympics. Their son has inherited the athletic abilities of his parents, as he is known for his robust physique that has seen him dominate opposition defenders ever since he started playing football in 2015 when he joined Bryne FK Academy.
Erling Haaland is six feet four inches tall, which makes him one of the tallest strikers on the planet. He weighs around 88 kg and has a muscular build which comes from a diet in which he “never stops eating” according to a number of his teammates. His nationality is Norwegian, and he currently plays for the Norway national team as a striker.
According to various sources Haaland’s net worth was estimated to be around $12 million, prior to his move to Manchester City last summer. He earns a reported $8 million a year in salary alone, making him one of the highest-paid footballers in the world. He also has various endorsement deals with reputed brands, including a £24m per year deal with American sportswear company Nike.
Erling Haaland is just 23 years old but he has already achieved a lot in his young career. He played for Molde FK and RB Salzburg before joining Borussia Dortmund in 2020, and prior to his arrival in Germany, he became the youngest player in the history of the Champions League to score four goals in a single game. He also now has his sights on overtaking legends such as Karim Benzema in Europe’s top tier continental competition. In his debut season at Signal Iduna Park, he scored 27 goals in 28 appearances, making him one of the top scorers in the Bundesliga alongside former Bayern Munich star Robert Lewandowski.
