A 26-year-old sports writer and an aspiring football coach who has road-tripped across the Scottish Highlands, but has never been to Wales. Sucker for cliff-hangers and catchy riffs. Known to be a grunger and not to be a stranger.

In a recent report, ABC Deportes has claimed that Real Madrid could move in for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland if they fail to land Kylian Mbappe from Paris Saint-Germain this summer. It is understood that Los Blancos are desperate to add a new goal-getter and could target Haaland if Mbappe decides to stay at the French capital this summer (via ABC Deportes).

Haaland’s Sensational Goal-Scoring Record At Signal Iduna Park

The Norway international has been a delight to watch in German football this season as he has continued to flourish as the focal point of the Dortmund frontline. The 20-year-old has found the back of the net on 41 occasions and grabbed 12 assists in 41 matches for the German giants this term in various competitions.

The Leeds-born sensation has given a good account of himself in front of the opponent’s goal after he averaged 3.3 shots, 1.0 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in the 2020-21 Bundesliga campaign. However, Haaland needs to improve his accuracy when distributing possession in the final third because he has only made 72.7% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).

Haaland’s ceiling is sky-high as he has the potential to become one of the most feared strikers of his generation if he can maintain his high standards in the years to come. He could be tempted with a chance to join Los Blancos this summer so that he can have a better shot at winning the UEFA Champions League trophy in the upcoming campaign.

What Will Haaland Add To Carlo Ancelotti’s Team?

Haaland has transformed himself into a deadly finisher in the attacking third. He has a knack for finding space for himself so that he always has a chance to get a shot in at goal. The 11-time Norway international can also contribute by picking up his fair share of assists up top. Therefore, Haaland will add plenty of pace, goals and creativity to Real Madrid manager Carlo Ancelotti’s attack if the Spanish giants can find a way to get a deal over the line for him this summer.

At 20, Haaland will only get better with each season, so he will be a great alternative to Kylian Mbappe if Los Blancos fail to recruit the Frenchman in this off-season. The 11-time Norway international is already good enough to earn regular game time at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. He could be an ideal long-term successor to Karim Benzema who is edging closer towards the twilight years of his playing career.

With all things considered, Ancelotti should go all out to secure Haaland’s signature as he will add a lot of firepower to his attack that might be enough for them to challenge for multiple trophies in the coming seasons.
