Erling Haaland is eager to move to La Liga and has asked his agent to prioritize a switch to Real Madrid in the summer of 2022.
The killer from Borussia Dortmund is wanted by almost every top side of the planet and his representative, Mino Raiola, has spoken to teams from all over Europe to measure interest in the 21-year-old.
Real are among the top suitors, with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester City all considered to have a real chance as well.
But according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Haaland’s focus is on a move to Spain, and even if he were open to moving to Barcelona, he has his heart set on going to Real.
“The Premier League is really a player’s dreamy, but it’s not [Haaland’s] head and not his first choice, “Di Marzio told Wettfreunde.” I do not know why because all players want to stay at Manchester United or Chelsea now.
“Even last year when Chelsea tried to get him, he did not press to go there because he thinks Real Madrid or FC Barcelona are the clubs that are the right move for him right now.
“Only Real Madrid and Barcelona can get him because he can not go to Atletico Madrid or any other club. Probably to – as [Kylian] Mbappe, who wants to play for Real Madrid – he told his agent to try Real Madrid. And if not with them, then with Barcelona and if not with Barcelona, then with Chelsea, Man Utd etc. “
Di Marzio continued to drive home the point that Haaland is not in love with a move to England, but left the door open for the Norwegian who remains in Dortmund.
“He does not like the Premier League too much, it is not exactly his dream. It is not the perfect league right now,” he added.
“He prefers La Liga – he likes the league a lot. So I think La Liga is the perfect environment for him to play in now. Or the Bundesliga, where he currently plays.
“It is not certain that he will go to the summer. Borussia Dortmund believe that another year is the right step for his career.”
Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke has already confirmed that there is a “guarantee” of interest from Real Madrid. He has also not ruled out the player staying, although 90min understands that, in the event of a sale, the club will try to negotiate a deferred payment plan to demand a total transfer fee greater than the forthcoming release clause of 75 million euros.
