The Race to Capture Erling Haaland

Barcelona is out of the race to sign Borussia Dortmund’s epic striker, but several other clubs are in the race to capture Erling Haaland

Erling Haaland, the Norwegian striker of Borussia Dortmund, is one of the hottest prospects in the world of football at present. In fact, he is the hottest one because his rival Mbappe has garnered interest from only one club, i.e., Real Madrid. Compared to Mbappe, Haaland is on the radar of several clubs and therefore, in this article, we have listed down the clubs that are interested in the Norwegian global star.

What is the importance of this article?

As mentioned in the first paragraph, Erling Haaland is the best young striker at the moment. Therefore, it is important to monitor Haaland’s movement and what the clubs are up to. After all, Haaland with big teams such as Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern and more, can bring new laurels to the mentioned clubs. Not to forget, with big teams, Haaland could turn himself into a legend of the game and forge his name in the history books.

Barcelona is out

Since the arrival of Xavi, the former legendary Barcelona midfielder has put his sight on Erling Haaland. However, given the club’s poor finances, Barcelona has pulled back. Reportedly, Haaland could go as expensive as 250 million euros, including agent’s commission, wages and transfer fee. Sadly, as of 2022, Barcelona is not in the position to invest such a huge amount in a single player. As per many sources, Barcelona is likely to go after Salah as an alternative to Haaland.

Manchester City’s gigantic offer

Erling Haaland has a release clause of 75 million euros, which is not a big deal for Manchester City and they can tap into it before April 30. However, wage and other factors also matter when a player is signed by a club. To woo and capture Haaland, as per several sources, Manchester City is willing to offer him a whopping amount of 500,000 euros per week. If the deal is sealed, Haaland will become the best-paid player in the entire world at the age of 22.

Real Madrid will not go as crazy as City

Real Madrid is also in the race to capture Haaland, but at the same time, they are also hoping to bring Mbappe onboard. Therefore, Real Madrid will not offer a crazy deal like City to Haaland. The club wishes to have Haaland but at a logical price-tag. Last but not the least, irrespective of the drool-worthy offers, it is Haaland’s decision to choose the correct club for his bright future.
