The Merengues could get a huge boost from Borussia Dortmund leaders for Erling Haaland’s transfer this summer.
Always very attentive to the situation of young Norwegian Erling Haaland, decisive passer this week in the Champions League against Manchester City, Real Madrid could receive a huge boost from fate. This is in any case what the Madrid media indicates AS in today’s edition. The daily says that all the lights are green for the arrival of the 20-year-old prodigy next season.
Despite the exorbitant price of the transaction – 150 million euros in cash (the amount claimed by Borussia Dortmund), plus 120 million euros in salary (20 million gross per year for 6 seasons) – the Merengues can count on generosity the boss of the Yellow and Black, Hans-Joaquim Watzke. Great friend and admirer of Florentino Perez, the BVB leader would like to give top priority to the club in the Spanish capital. He could also accept a payment spread over several seasons, which would limit the direct impact on the club’s finances. Two favors that Watzke will reserve only for Real Madrid, giving them a huge advantage over their competition.
Furthermore, AS recalls that Erling Haaland wants to join Real Madrid or FC Barcelona as a priority. But on the side of Real, he could notably find his friend and teammate in the Norwegian selection, Martin Odegaard, currently on loan to Arsenal. One more point in favor of the formation of Zinedine Zidane, who has never been a big favorite this summer for the recruitment of Erling Haaland.
