Erling Haaland has made his decision on a future move to Real Madrid, following rumors in recent months that Kylian Mbappe will be part of the club this summer.

Erling Haaland, Manchester City’s standout striker, is known for his unparalleled skill and presence in the attacking third, having perfected the art of goal-scoring.

Before his move to Manchester City, Haaland was heavily linked with a transfer to Real Madrid but chose to develop his career under Pep Guardiola instead.

Despite this, Haaland’s admiration for Real Madrid is well-known, and he is rumored to envision a future for himself at the club, wearing their iconic white kit.

The situation has become more complex with Kylian Mbappe’s anticipated departure from PSG. This summer, Haaland has the option to leave Manchester City due to a release clause in his contract.

Reports, including one from AS, suggest that the news of Mbappe likely joining Real Madrid has influenced Haaland. The 23-year-old Norwegian had ambitions of joining Real Madrid, ideally in 2025 after three years with Manchester City.

Thus, Mbappe’s move throws a shadow on Haaland’s plans, even though he still dreams of playing in Madrid’s royal white.

On the contractual front, Haaland’s current deal with Manchester City expires in 2027. The club is keen on extending it, but his agent, Rafaela Pimenta, is advocating for maintaining the release clause, which could facilitate a future move to Real Madrid.

The feasibility of Haaland and Mbappe both playing for Madrid hinges on financial considerations rather than the Norwegian’s desire.

Concerns exist within Haaland’s camp about Real Madrid’s ability to afford the high wages of both players without jeopardizing the club’s financial health.
