There is less than a quarter left for the football transfer market to break fully, and as usual and customary, Real Madrid is a hot topic. Amidst all of the financial failures during the COVID phase, Real brushed them aside and recruited famous talents like Eduardo Camavinga and David Alaba, while also being ready to pay 200 million euros for Kylian Mbappe, demonstrating the Spanish club’s superiority throughout the transfer season.

Erling Haaland, who has piqued the interest of elites throughout the continent, including Real Madrid, is searching for a new home following a successful and relatively brief stint at Borussia Dortmund. The Norwegian has excelled since his young national team days and continues to do so, having already finished 11th in the Ballon d’Or rankings at the age of 21! One thing is certain: whoever signs him in the coming months won’t have to worry about goal scoring for a great many years.

Many teams, like Manchester City and Real Madrid, have promised him enormous sums of money in order to get him to join them, demonstrating their eagerness for the talent.

But, according to football’s most prominent transfer insider, Fabrizio Romano, Erling Haaland just does not care about money all that much. While it is definitely one of the considerations, it is not the only one and may be the last on the list. So, if not money, what is it that pleases Haaland’s interest?

Erling Haaland puts the sporting project first

It would not be unfair to state that Haaland is akin to all of us who have aspired to play football on the grandest stage imaginable and to win all the honours offered by the game. Continuing with Romano’s trustworthy comments, the teenager likes to consider what the prospective club has to give him outside money.

Haaland is anxious to join a team with a project worth signing up for, which might lead to both collective and individual success. He wants to join a team that strives for the highest podium, which may be motivated by his present club’s recent relegation to the Europa League from the Champions League.

The second source of inspiration for the Dortmund star is the guy in charge of him, the manager. He wants to train with the top coaches in the sport and grow organically in order to make it big and compete with the best of his kind.

Finally, Haaland’s primary source of concern is the sporting strategy that has been presented to him. His goal is to play alongside the top players in the world who can challenge him and vice versa. He wants to thrive in a system that encourages and facilitates his skills rather than having a negative impact on his talents.

While it has been claimed that Real Madrid is not far below Manchester City’s monetary offer for Haaland, this revelation comes as a relief as well as an inspiration for Los Blancos to continue fighting for the player and convincing him with means other than money.
