Erling Braut Haaland has arguably been the most talked about name in world football for some time now. After sealing a move to Borussia Dortmund in January, the youngster has taken everyone by storm. His brilliant performances on the field have attracted the interest of the top clubs across Europe, Real Madrid being one of them.
However, the man himself has now played down any rumours linking him to a move to Spain, or to any other club for that matter. The Express reports that in an interview, the Norway international has stated, “I concentrate on doing my job, not on the attention that others direct towards me. I do my job the best I can, it’s what I like the most.
He added, “I certainly got off to a good start here in Dortmund. I am concentrating on working to improve every day. I see that by taking care of the details I learn more and more, trying to be in the best shape possible.”
Do Real Madrid need him?
To be frank, any club need a player like Haaland, and Real Madrid are no exception. He would take the quality of the Madrid side attack to a different level altogether. In the post-Ronaldo era, only a maverick player such as Haaland can fill the void.
The ex-Molde man has so far scored nine goals in the Bundesliga appearing in 8 matches, which is phenomenal for a striker of any age. His precision and composure are second to none, as is his intelligence on the ball. His enormous physical stature makes him an intimidating presence for the opposition defenders, and Zidane could use that quality in set-pieces.
It is hard to say whether Los Blancos would be able to get their hands on PSG star Kylian Mbappé, especially with the financial turmoil that the world would see after the pandemic. However, Haaland would be an equally good option with the 19-year-old stealing as much thunder in recent times as his French counterpart.
How would Haaland fit into the Real team?
With the ex Red Bull Salzburg man in his ranks, Zidane would not have to think about the centre-forward position for a long time. Benzema is already 32, and it is fair to say that the French star is at the last stage of his career. Luka Jovic has not left any impression in the minds of the fans, and as things stand, it does not seem like the Serbian features in the plans of the French gaffer.
Therefore, Real Madrid indeed need a striker to lead their line and Haaland would fit like a glove in the system of the club. Zidane prefers a 4-2-3-1 system with Benzema at the top, a position which Haaland could make his own for a long time to come.
