Real Madrid transfer window: new revelations on the future of Erling Haaland


By: Manu Tournoux

Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland. Here are two names that have kept coming back to Real Madrid in recent months. Determined to get the Parisian star, Madrid’s upper echelons have, however, suffered several disappointments in this matter. Far from being resigned – despite very different communication on this subject – the current second in La Liga has not lost his hopes of snatching the Bondynois from the club in the French capital. However, a new snub could well change the situation and push the Merengue leaders to advance their pawns on the Norwegian, currently playing under the colors of Manchester City. With this in mind, certain members of the White House board of directors are already convinced that the Haaland option is preferable in view of the Madrid workforce.

More than KM7, the pure 9 profile available to the native of Leeds would indeed allow Real to (finally) replace the departure of Karim Benzema, who left for Saudi Arabia. At the same time, such a scenario would benefit a certain Vinicius Junior, comfortable on his left side. From then on and if the team coached by Carlo Ancelotti were to accelerate for the 1m95 left-hander, the Spanish press reveals new information on the future of the Norwegian international (29 caps, 27 goals). Enough to give a little more weight to this long-standing track. So, the daily A.S. reveals that the Whites have been informed of the exact nature of the release clauses that the player’s representative, Rafaela Pimenta, has included in his contract. As such, the clause which allows the Norwegian to leave will begin in 2024 and is also valid for the summers of 2025 and 2026. The media specifies that the price for 2024 exceeds 200 million and this amount will gradually decrease progress of the interested party’s lease…

Real ready to draw from 2024 for Haaland!

On the other hand, and despite the information disclosed by the Citizens, A.S. claims that there is no clause linking Haaland’s contract to that of Guardiola, recently extended until June 2025. As a result, Haaland could leave England as early as 2024. A possibility that Real Madrid is currently working on . Armed financially, the club chaired by Florentino Perez has already planned everything to take action with Erling Haaland. If the economic aspect is therefore not a possible barrier for the Merengues – Real today has 128 million euros in cash and possibly 265 million euros that can be used to recruit – and this despite the 200 million euros to spend in the event of departure in 2024 (not to mention the salary), the main difficulty for Madrilenians lies in convincing the person himself to join Spain. At a time when the Norwegian, who has just signed a 15-year contract with Nike, has 100% of his image rights and can therefore expect nearly 300 million euros over this period, Real is considering two very different scenarios to attract the 23-year-old striker.

On the one hand, the Madrid club is banking on a “failed” season for the one who currently has 19 goals and 5 assists in 22 matches in all competitions since the start of the season. In the event of failure in the Champions League or in his desire to win the Ballon d’Or, Haaland could, in fact, open the door to a departure in order to achieve his objectives with another top European star. Conversely, the Merengues also believe that a new triumphant season with the Skyblues – who are coming off a treble – could definitively fill number 9. Once this voracity is satisfied, the main concerned would then, perhaps, be willing to take on a new challenge in his young career. If uncertainty is therefore the order of the day and daily life A.S. specifies that a departure before 2025 seems unlikely for the pillar of the Mancunian attack, Real Madrid has, in any case, already prepared its action plan. It now remains to be known the outcome of the case leading to Kylian Mbappé but if the latter were to, once again, go wrong, there is no doubt that the Merengues will do everything possible to defy the predictions and afford the Norwegian cyborg. The general picture of the situation is established and the start of 2024 risks being a real turning point… One thing is certain, Real Madrid is determined to strike a big blow in the weeks to come.
