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, Sport claimed that Real Madrid have cooled their interest in Manchester City ace Erling Haaland. It has been revealed that Los Blancos have dropped their interest in the Man City striker after signing Endrick from Palmeiras recently.

Haaland’s Incredible Record In English Football This Season

Haaland has enjoyed one of the best seasons of his playing career at the Etihad Stadium as he has continued to be a prolific goal-scorer for Man City in the Premier League. The 22-year-old has banged in 23 goals and grabbed three assists in 18 matches for the Mancunian club during this campaign on all fronts.

The Norway international has given a good account of himself in the final third by averaging 4.0 shots and 1.1 key passes per 90 minutes in Premier League football. He has even been tidy when linking up play with others around him in the final third, as evidenced by his pass completion rate of 76.5% in league football (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at Man City will expire in the summer of 2027. Hence, Man City have no reason to panic about losing him any time soon. However, Real Madrid’s drop in interest will not doubt beneficial for the Mancunian giants as they simply cannot afford to have the player unsettled when he is in the form of his life.

Real Madrid Cools Their Interest In Man City Striker Erling Haaland: Big Boost For Pep Guardiola?

Haaland is proficient at creating space for himself to get a few shots in on target. He is a proven finisher in front of the opponent’s goal and has got the vision to engineer some decent plays for others around him in the final third. Haaland has established himself as one of the best strikers in European football.

The Norway international is currently playing at the top of his game. Hence, Real Madrid dropping their interest in him will be a big boost for Man City next summer.

Haaland is currently one of the first names on Pep Guardiola‘s teamsheet due to his prolific nature in front of the opposition goal.

At 22, Haaland has his best years ahead of him. Thus, there is no reason for the Mancunian giants to cash in on him when he is just beginning to prove his worth at the Etihad Stadium. The way Haaland has been playing of late, he could help Man City win multiple trophies over the next few years.
