The Add-ons: BVB-Real ties, trapped potential, and Haaland’s winks

While there are no doubts to the fact that Erling Haaland is massively talented and is a ware-house of potential, there are also a number of added advantages for Real Madrid if the deal is finalized. First of all, the relations between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid are those that can be defined as ideal. With the German club making such smart buys as Haaland under around 30 million euros, Real may eye to benefit out of this smartness in form of loan moves or transfers. Reportedly, Raiola has already shaken hands with Dortmund in relation to Haaland’s future, it is only left to figure out what the exact development is.

Haaland is playing in a tough league against tougher opponents in a weaker team and yet producing the goods. It just goes to say how talented the forward is and in comparison to his alternate- Mbappe- that Real are eyeing, he has been mighty impressive. The French Ligue1 is a league that Mbappe’s PSG dominates and it’s relatively easier for him to maintain catchy statistics. Not to forget, Haaland is 2 years younger yet just as good. He could really benefit out of Zidane’s keen eye upon his formative years of development.

Lastly, there already have been signs prompting towards Haaland’s move to real. While these signs could be totally innocent but it is safe to say that the Striker has been favoring a Madrid move. Not only did he comment on Real’s stature in Spanish Football, his father Alf-Inge Haaland who played for Manchester City between 2000 and 2003 has been spotted praising Spanish Football. It is true that he has a massive hand behind his son’s future prospects and being a city player himself it would have made sense if he favored city as his son’s next club.

But, the ‘tell-tale’ signs haven’t been telling us so. Lastly, photos of Real Madrid players like Sergio Ramos, Lucas Vasquez, and Marco Asensio copying Haaland’s celebration during practice sessions have created quite the chaos among Madridistas and fans of other clubs eyeing him and so has the Spanish Daily Marca’s cover story on the same topic.

Overall, signing Erling Haaland can help Real Madrid fill few vital gaps in their attack. If the move is made with enough financial sense, it could be massive for both Madrid and Haaland himself. For any player in the world, saying NO to Real Madrid is a bit tough. While the question between Mbappe and Haaland remains, it is also true that the former is already at a big club that dominates the domestic competition. Hence, if only one signing is to be made owing to finances, it should be Erling Haaland.
