Erling Haaland has enjoyed a remarkably prolific start to life in England with Manchester City.

Ahead of Sunday’s derby with Manchester United, Haaland has scored 14 goals in 10 games in all competitions since his off-season move for City.

The Norwegian joined City from Borussia Dortmund in June on a five-year deal following interest from several top clubs.

Erling Haaland has just a few months left on his first contract at Manchester City, but the English champions are ready to offer him a new and improved contract, according to the Daily Star.

City have in the past signed revised contracts early to shore up key players before they become transfer targets for rivals, and will do the same with their star striker if he can maintain his goalscoring ability.

Haaland is already one of City’s top earners alongside Kevin De Bruyne, who earns around £375,000 a week.

City may opt to improve that with an improved extension in May with reports that Real Madrid plan to pursue him in 2024 when they can activate his release clause.
