Erling Haaland is keen to move to La Liga and has asked his agent to prioritize a move to Real Madrid in the summer of 2022.
The Borussia Dortmund hitman is wanted by almost every summit on the planet and his representative, Mino Raiola, spoke to teams from across Europe to gauge interest in the 21-year-old.
Real are among the main contenders, along with Barcelona, Paris Saint-Germain and Manchester city all thought to be with real luck too.
However, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, Haaland is focused on a move to Spain, and while he would be ready to move to Barcelona, he is keen to join Real.
“The Premier League is certainly a player’s dream league, but it’s not in [Haaland’s] head and not his first choice, “said Di Marzio Wettfreunde. “I don’t know why because every player wants to stay at Manchester United or Chelsea now.
“Only Real Madrid and Barcelona can have him because he can’t go to Atletico Madrid or any other club. Probably because – like [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 has continued to make it clear that Haaland is not infatuated with a move to England, but has left the door open for the Norwegian remaining in Dortmund.
“He doesn’t really like the Premier League, it’s not exactly his dream. It’s 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 now. Or the Bundesliga, where he currently plays.
“It is not certain whether he will go this summer. Borussia Dortmund believe another year is the right step for his career.”
Dortmund general manager Hans-Joachim Watzke has already confirmed there is a “guarantee” of interest from Real Madrid. He also did not rule out that the player would stay, although 90min understand that in the event of a sale, the club will try to negotiate an installment payment plan to order a globally transfer fees higher than the imminent release clause of 75 million euros.
