The world today is witnessing two of the biggest stars of football deciding upon their career’s future. And it comes as no surprise that both of them desire to play for the best club. Out of the duo, Kylian Mbappe practically has one foot in the Real Madrid dressing room. It is the Norwegian Erling Haaland that has caught the eye of the entire world right now. Given that he is supposedly up for grab this summer.

Though a plethora of reports suggest the Spanish club asking him to wait out for a season, which to be honest was not believable in the first place; the news from Mario Cortegana for Marca comes as a rather tender shower of rain. As per the report, the Royal Whites are actually prepped up to host the arrival of the big Norwegian this summer. They have not asked him to stay with Dortmund and wait until 2023.

Erling Haaland and agent Mino Raiola have been fairly clear about their desire to move away from the German club. And the player himself wishes to play for the Spanish club.

The club is also aware of the value Erling Haaland holds, in addition to his quality. Hence, it will come as no surprise if other clubs approach to get the signature of the player.

Why does it make sense to bring Erling Haaland to Real Madrid in 2022?

First things first, it makes sense to get Haaland at the club as soon as possible for the sheer quality the young player possesses. He has an eye for the goal, and the first lesson of the game is to score as many as possible, something Erling Haaland lives for.

Secondly, Erling is pursued by some other big clubs as well, including our rivals Barcelona and the Premier League leaders, Manchester City. So, if Real Madrid fail to sign him this summer, chances are Erling might just look for an opportunity elsewhere.

And finally, it will be rather unwise to ask him to spend yet another season at Borussia Dortmund, given that the state of the club is not that great. Knocked out of DFB-Pokal, knocked out of Europa League, and sitting at second positing in Bundesliga, which to be honest is not that great of a feat.

We will, of course, see how this Haaland saga unfolds by the end of the season. But it does seem practical to get his signature this summer only.
