ERLING HAALAND could land a £5million jackpot if he helps fire leaders Manchester City to the Treble.
The record-breaking striker’s move from Borussia Dortmund last summer included a series of success-related lucrative windfalls.

And, thanks to the champions’ remarkable season, the 22-year-old Norwegian will add a pot of gold to his collection of medals.
Haaland is expected to earn roughly £1 million for winning the Premier League and Champions League.
He would receive an additional £350,000 if City defeated Manchester United in the first all-Manchester FA Cup final next month.
Haaland will also fill his shoes if he wins any of the season’s end-of-season honors, some of which are already in the bag.
He has already set a new record for Premier League goals in a season and will finish as top scorer, pocketing a sum comparable to his FA Cup haul.
Individual awards such as PFA Player of the Year, Football Writers’ Player of the Year, and selection to the PFA Team of the Year come with additional significant bonuses.
City has similar incentives in place for Kevin De Bruyne, preferring to reward performance with large bonuses in order to keep their salary expenditure under control.
Haaland is also a serious contender for this year’s Ballon d’Or — awarded to the best player on the planet — which Etihad sources estimate is worth another £1 million.
