According to Spanish publication Marca, Real Madrid have been informed that Erling Haaland wishes to play for the club one day, with both Mino Raiola and the striker siding with a move to Los Blancos so far.
It’s written that the January 2020 transfer to Borussia Dortmund was seen as a stepping stone for the Norwegian sensation, but that an exit to a bigger club was initially seen as the plan for 2022, not now.
Haaland’s continued prolific showings, working hand-in-hand to establish the 20-year-old as a bonafide superstar, have now left a transfer to be sought in the upcoming transfer window.
Marca hint that Madrid may seek a players-plus-cash deal to bring Haaland to the Bernabeu. This comes amid news that rivals Barcelona have tabled an official approach for the in-demand striker.
ABC Deportes also echo these notions on Haaland and Real Madrid, claiming that the centre-forward is ‘eager’ to join Los Blancos. With a move from Dortmund already being negotiated by the star and Raiola.

ESPN report that Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City are also eyeing a move for Haaland, with this latest Real Madrid development serving as a potential knockout blow to their hopes.
Haaland has been relentless as he’s moved from strength to strength since joining Dortmund from Red Bull Salzburg, he’s playing at a level that a move to a respectfully much bigger club is now becoming a foregone conclusion and matter of time rather than a rumour.
