Erling Haaland reportedly plans to audition for Real Madrid during Champions League quarter final tie

Erling Haaland is just 23, yet he’s already an established name in the global soccer community, arguably the best finisher of the ball in the world right now. His move from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City has further enhanced his profile, solidifying his position at the top of global football. He found himself as a Ballon d’Or contender alongside Lionel Messi and Kylian Mbappe last year.

This shows just how far the Norwegian has come since bursting onto the scene with Red Bull Salzburg. He became a Champions League winner with City last season and is poised to win it for the second time in a row this season. However, they must overcome Real Madrid in the quarterfinals over two legs, presenting the perfect opportunity for Haaland to audition for a future move to the club.

Erling Haaland reportedly plans to put on a show for Real Madrid

Erling Haaland is one of the best players in the world right now. If Messi had not won the World Cup with Argentina, the Norwegian would have won his first Ballon d’Or trophy last year, finishing second just behind the World Cup winner. His time at Manchester City has brought about significant improvement in his overall play, and he may earn himself the opportunity to play for Real Madrid someday if he manages to impress when both teams meet in the UCL quarter-final in a few weeks.

It is almost every player’s dream to play for Real Madrid someday, and it’s no surprise that’s what’s on Haaland’s mind as well. He has openly admitted his love for the Madrid club and how he would love to play for the record UCL winners someday. According to sources close to the player, Haaland sees Manchester City as a steppingstone to fulfill his dream of playing for Real Madrid.

If Haaland later joins Real Madrid, he’ll have the opportunity to play alongside Kylian Mbappe, who has reportedly agreed to a five-year deal with the Spanish giants, signing a contract until 2029, where he’s set to be their highest paid. If a move happens, this will be one of the greatest attacking teams in world football.

Barcelona also keen on Erling Haaland

Barcelona are struggling, and they know it. While they won the league last season, this season looks bleak for them. Xavi will even be stepping down as the manager of the club at the end of the season due to the poor results they’ve endured since the start of the season. Additionally, they’re facing a dire financial crisis and corruption allegations. Barcelona can’t seem to get anything right at this point.

What everyone knowns about them is that their financial issues do not always stop them from snapping up the best players, and they could be tempted to make a move for Erling Haaland this summer, per GOAL.

Robert Lewandowski is already and his reluctance to leave despite reportedly getting a huge offer from a Saudi club may make any deal to bring Haaland to Barcelona a little difficult.

The Spanish giants are also hoping to use the new Camp Nou stadium as one of the driving factors to bring Erling Haaland to the club.
