In a recent report, El Debate claimed that Real Madrid are eyeing a big move for Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland. It has been stated that Los Blancos are eager to move in for the Norway international if they fail to land Paris Saint-Germain’s Kylian Mbappe next summer.
Haaland’s Outstanding Form At Manchester City
Haaland had a brilliant campaign at Man City last season when he banged in plenty of goals for them across all competitions. The Norwegian centre-forward has begun this season well after scoring six goals and earning one assist in six appearances for the Mancunian giants across all fronts.
The 23-year-old has given a good account of himself in the final third by averaging 5.0 shots and 1.5 key passes per game in Premier League football. However, he lacked quality when interchanging possession with his teammates after completing only 64.1% of his attempted passes in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).
His current contract at Man City will run out in the summer of 2027. Therefore, Los Blancos will have to make a mammoth offer if they want to seal a move for the Norwegian striker next year.
Will Haaland Be A Dream Signing For Real Madrid?
Haaland excels at finding a yard of space for himself to get a few strikes in on-target. He can hold possession up for his side and can use his towering 1.95m frame to win his fair share of aerial duels.
The 25-time Norway international has proven himself to be a deadly finisher in the Premier League. However, he has to figure out a way to improve his link-up play on the attacking end of the field.
At 23, Haaland has got a very promising future ahead which makes him a dream signing for Los Blancos next year. The Norwegian sensation will also help the Madrid giants challenge for a lot of major silverware over the next decade. All in all, Real Madrid should focus all their attention to get a deal done for Haaland in next summer’s transfer window.
