Erling Haaland is one of the most talked-about in world football at present. His goalscoring stats both domestically and internationally mark him out as an extraordinary player, who could break many records during his career
Erling Haaland has bagged 29 goals from 27 appearances for Red Bull Salzburg. They have come from just 20 appearances as the Scandinavian has struggled with a few niggling injuries. He has also been prolific for Norway, scoring 12 times from just 15 games.
Unsurprisingly, those numbers mean that most of the top European clubs want him in the dressing room. From the Premier League, the teams like Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea have been linked. But Real have also been mentioned as the best possible suitors for Haaland.
Erling Haaland and Real Madrid deal
A report by Sport, suggests Real Madrid may have stolen a march on their rivals. The Catalan outlet state that the Los Blancos hierarchy met with Haaland’s father, Alf-Inge, as well as Rafael Pimenta. Pimenta works alongside super-agent Mino Raiola, the man who controls Haaland’s affairs.
Raiola is currently recovering from surgery and was unable to attend the meeting. And Real are said to have brokered an ‘agreement’ to ‘block’ negotiations that might deliver them a large gain over other suitors should it turn out to be the case.
Real Madrid and FC Barcelona are final contenders for Haaland?
Barcelona will not be down for too long and are sure to bounce back in the coming seasons for Haaland. The capital outfit wants to recruit the best players in the world and also have targeted Kylian Mbappe.
The France international will be out of contract at Paris Saint-Germain in the coming summer. And it was reported earlier this month that Real Madrid will prioritise the signing of Mbappe over Erling Haaland. However, the latest rumours suggest that is not the case – as they want both of the stars at the Bernabeu stadium.
It was claimed last week that Real want Erling Haaland to stay with BVB for another season as they cannot afford the present situation.
