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, AS stated that Real Madrid are eyeing a move for Manchester City star Erling Haaland in 2024. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are planning to launch a move for the Norway international next year.

Haaland’s Impressive Run Of Form For Man City

Haaland is having a brilliant campaign at the Etihad Stadium as he has proven himself to be a goal-scoring machine for them in the Premier League. The Norwegian centre-back has found the back of the net on 42 occasions and picked up five assists in 37 appearances for the Mancunian club this season across various competitions.

The 22-year-old deserves a pat on the back for averaging 3.5 shots and 0.8 key passes per game in Premier League football. He has also been decent with his link-up play in the final third, as evidenced by his pass success rate of 75.6% in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).

His current contract at the Mancunian club is set to run out in the summer of 2027. Thus, Los Blancos will have to orchestrate a mammoth offer to stand a chance of signing him next year.

Is Haaland A Dream Choice For Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti?

Haaland is one of the most lethal strikers in world football at the moment. He has banged in goals for fun in the Premier League and has also improved his link-up play under the expert stewardship of Pep Guardiola over the past six months.

Standing at 1.95m, the Norwegian sensation is a towering presence in the air and has got the pace and power to cause all sorts of problems inside the opponent’s penalty box.

Someone of Haaland’s quality and skillset would no doubt be a massive signing for Los Blancos as he would serve as a great replacement for Karim Benzema, who is entering the final stage of his Real Madrid career.

We can expect Haaland to add a lot of physicality and goals to Carlo Ancelotti‘s frontline and might even help the Madrid giants challenge for plenty of major trophies in the coming seasons. With all things considered, he will be a dream choice for Ancelotti to consider in the summer of 2024.
