In a recent report, El Gol Digital revealed that Real Madrid are eyeing a big-money move for Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland this summer. It is understood that Los Blancos are willing to raise funds and pay Dortmund’s €170m asking price to win the race to land the Norway international during this summer transfer period (via El Gol Digital).

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

The Leeds-born marksman had another incredible campaign with the German outfit as he continued to bang in goals at a high rate for them over the past 12 months. Haaland registered 41 goals and 12 assists in 41 appearances for Dortmund last season across various competitions.

The 20-year-old was a joy to watch in the attacking third after he averaged 3.3 shots, 1.0 key passes and 1.1 dribbles per 90 minutes in Premier League football. However, he can improve his accuracy with his ball distribution based on his pass completion rate of 72.7% in the English first division (stats via whoscored).

Haaland is still under contract with the German club until the summer of 2024, so it is no surprise that Los Blancos would have to pay around €170m to stand a chance of acquiring the player’s services before the start of the new season.

What Will Haaland Add To Carlo Ancelotti’s Team?

Haaland is a proven goal-scorer in front of the opposition goal and seems to be getting better with each season. He has a knack for finding space in the final third and excels at getting a few shots in on-target. The Norway international can strike the ball purely and with a lot of power that makes him a goal-threat from long range as well. He can even chip in with some useful assists and is proficient at using his robust 1.94m to dominate the opposition in the air.

At 20, Haaland is in for a very bright future in European football and could go to win plenty of trophies if he decides to seal a move to Los Blancos this summer. An experienced manager like Carlo Ancelotti could unlock the best out of the Norwegian sensation at the Spanish capital in the coming seasons.

Plus, Haaland would serve as a decent long-term successor to Karim Benzema at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium. We can expect him to add plenty of goals and dynamism to Real Madrid’s attacking department that might help them reclaim the La Liga title next season. The Norwegian whizkid could even lead the Madrid giants to a few more UEFA Champions League trophies in the years to come if Ancelotti can snap him up this summer.
