ERLING HAALAND’s transfer to Manchester City has sparked a £50m boot war.

Norweigan’s £1 million a year boot contract with Nike ended earlier in this period and he decided to keep his options open until he changed clubs.

Haaland will earn £375,000 a week with City but will significantly increase that figure this summer through endorsements.

Puma, which already sponsors City shirts for £65m a year, is understood to be in a bidding war with rivals Adidas to sign the 21-year-old star.

Both German boot firms want to hire him for the next decade.

The exposure of playing in the Premier League will boost Haaland’s earning potential, and deals worth £5m a year are being discussed.
