‘Monster striker’ Holland targeted by Barcelona…buyout to be paid in 2025
Rumors of Elling Holland’s transfer to Barcelona have been raised.
Britain’s 90min said on the 13th (Korea Standard Time), “Barcelona is preparing to transfer to Holland in 2025. “By 2025, Holland will be able to transfer with a buyout of 150 million pounds (about 250 billion won).”바카라사이트
Holland, who entered Manchester City last year through Salzburg and Dortmund, dominated the Premier League with such a tremendous performance that the young age of the 2000s was overshadowed. He scored 36 goals and eight assists in 35 league matches last season, setting a new single-season goal record since the launch of the Premier League, and also became the top scorer in the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA) Champions League (UCL) in the 2022-23 season with 12 goals and 1 assist. In addition, Holland has won several awards, including the English Football Journalists Association (FWA) Player of the Year, the UEFA Men’s Player of the Year, and the Professional Footballers’ Association (PFA) Player of the Year.
Holland’s influence remains this season. He is ranked first in scoring with six goals and one assist in four league games, and thanks to Holland’s performance, Manchester City is also leading the league with four wins. For Manchester City, Holland has already become an irreplaceable player.
Meanwhile, the news of Holland’s transfer came out of nowhere. “90min” said, “Holland signed a five-year contract with Manchester City, which includes numerous buyout clauses. One of them will be nullified when Pep Guardiola signs an extension of his contract in 2024, which means Holland’s clause to leave the team for 172 million pounds (about 285.4 billion won) in 2025, the next year,” he said. If Guardiola does not extend his contract with Manchester City, Holland’s buyout clause remains.
“Man City is preparing to persuade Holland and his agent to remove the buyout clause. Instead, he will be offered 500,000 pounds (about 800 million won), the highest weekly salary in the league.
However, even if Barcelona recruits Holland in 2025 as Guardiola’s contract is not extended and the buyout clause remains, there is a big variable. The question is whether Holland’s high weekly salary can be paid in line with the La Liga salary cap system. In fact, Barcelona tried to bring Lionel Messi back to the team ahead of last season, but failed to meet the salary cap limit due to the salary cap system. It is also expected to be a big challenge for Barcelona, which is suffering from serious financial problems, to pay Holland’s transfer fee in compliance with financial fair play (FFP). In many ways, the possibility of recruiting is not high.
