Florentino Perez, president of Real Madrid, has asserted that he is unaware of Erling Haaland's Manchester City release clause.
Haaland only moved from Borussia Dortmund to the Etihad this summer.
20 goals have already been scored by the striker for City in just 14 games.
Madrid was another club with a strong interest in Haaland, and the Los Blancos are still mentioned in connection with a move for him.
According to The Athletic, his five-year contract has a €200 million (£175.5 million) release clause that goes into effect in 2024.
Alf Inge Haaland, Haaland's father, recently asserted that his son wants to "prove his abilities in all leagues" and gave his City tenure a time frame of "three or four years at the most."
If Haaland were to leave City, Haaland would be the most likely candidate for the next available position, but Perez has taken steps to play down any rumors that the La Liga champions are considering a move.
“Release clause for Erling Haaland? "I have no idea, honestly,” he said.
“We have the best players in the world at Real Madrid.”
