Although Real Madrid did not sign Erling Haaland this year, there is a feeling among Madridistas that this is only a delay in the striker’s decision to join his ultimate dream destination.

Haaland is now a Manchester City player after the Cityzens activated his 60 million euro release clause, which is cheaper than what many expected. Of course, the wages and agent fees make this deal a lot more expensive than 60 million, and that, combined with Karim Benzema’s continued quality and Kylian Mbappe’s expected arrival, likey led to Real and Haaland choosing a different approach.

However, it may not be long until Haaland goes to Madrid. BILD reports what has been widely speculated for several weeks now. There will be a release clause in Erling Haaland’s new contract with Manchester City, which would allow him to leave for, presumably, Real Madrid in two years.

The price Los Blancos would have to pay for Haaland? 150 million euros.

150 million euros for Erling Haaland would be worth it to Real Madrid

Obviously that’s a lot more than what City paid for Haaland, but it is still a sensible amount. Remember, the Merengues were prepared to pay PSG 200 million euros for Mbappe last summer. They are willing to pay any price to sign a superstar. We have seen that in the past with Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale, and even Eden Hazard.

If all goes well for Haaland and his development proceeds as expected, the free-scoring striker will become even better and would easily be worth 150 million euros to Madrid. That’s not an inflated price; it is a fair asking price. Because if Madrid are interested in signing Haaland when the time comes, that means he would be more than good enough to be worth that amount.

There are a lot of rumors in football, so we cannot take this report at face value. But it is a development for Real Madrid fans to watch and seems reasonable. Again, we have been hearing about the possibility of such a release clause for a while, as it seems like playing for Real Madrid one day – when he can be the star man up top – is important to Erling Haaland.
