Erling Haaland, the star of Manchester City, may become the first player in the history of the football market to have a worth of one billion pounds sterling, according to his agent.
Based on estimates, Haaland‘s weekly wage at Manchester City is reportedly very large, at £865,000.
This sum includes the weekly pay as well as large bonuses obtained by scoring goals and winning games.
But according to Pimenta, Haaland‘s agent, there are a number of reasons why the Norwegian could become the first football player to be valued at one billion pounds sterling.
She made remarks that were reported by the English tabloid “The Sun,” adding, “I want to talk about the overall package you achieve throughout your professional career; I’m not saying the transfer fees will reach that amount.”
She went on, “You can play until you’re 35 years old today, but you still have to consider things like pay, transfer fees, sponsorships, broadcast revenue, ticket sales, and jersey sales. When you have a player like Erling, that number goes up to one billion.”
She carried on to say, “Maybe I sell the digital version of Haaland to 100 million people in India, China, Brazil, and Mexico for 2000 euros (1740.84 pounds sterling)? The video game industry generates enormous revenue.”
“Maybe someday we get to the point where we use virtual reality glasses to play a football game and experience the same feelings as if you were in the stands,” she continued.
“Virtual experiences make you truly three-dimensional, so perhaps we should sell the football experience to people who can’t find or purchase tickets to the Bernabeu or the Etihad, in addition to broadcasters.”
She elaborated, saying, “I am using multipliers that go beyond physical presence (like a player on the field) when I say a billion because they can experience the game in the Metaverse as if they were there.”
She continued, saying, “I love working with the Haaland family because they have high standards for professionalism and clear communication.” Regardless of your gender, they pay attention to you. It is quite reviving.
“He is an amazing player, considering what he achieves with his feet on the ground,” she confirmed. “He has no illusions, is completely aware of who he is and what he stands for, and I have never seen any bad changes in him that fame and fortune may bring about.”
“He may only be 23 years old, but he is incredibly mature, profound, and serene, and he enjoys eating,” she said in closing.
