The agent of Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has refused to clarify the status of the release clause in the Norwegian's contract.

Haaland joined City last summer, signing a contract which did include a bumper release clause, although it is believed that Pep Guardiola's recent contract extension triggered a change in the terms of the agreement, perhaps even removing it altogether.

There have been suggestions that the clause has been removed altogether, but when asked for an update, Haaland's agent Rafaela Pimenta, remained coy and, if anything, fuelled the uncertainty surrounding his future.
