Why are Real Madrid happy to let Erling Haaland go to Manchester City?  

    The English Premier League club Manchester City has just officially confirmed the Norwegian striker Erling Haaland’s signing in the upcoming summer transfer window. While some big clubs were targeting this 21-year-old wonder kid, City have won the battle. Here we are talking about why the Spanish club giants Real Madrid have recently lost their interest in Haaland.  

    Real Madrid are a very popular club in football. Not only they are holding the record of winning most Spanish first division titles with 35 times, but they have also recorded 13 UEFA Champions League titles.

    Unsurprisingly, Real Madrid always play very confident roles in the transfer seasons, as they have the ability to bring highly talented players with lucrative amounts.

    According to some media reports, Los Blancos initially targeted Erling Haaland due to his incredible performances. Playing for German Bundesliga club Borussia Dortmund, Haaland has already set high standard performances on the field. He has already scored 85 goals in 88 matches for the BVB along with 23 assists.

    In the ongoing European season, Haaland has managed 28 goals and eight assists in 29 matches. Also, not to forget that he was the UEFA Champions League top goal-scorer in the 2020/21 season with 10 goals.

    Though Haaland has performed consistently at his early age, Real Madrid somehow haven’t shown their desperation for this striker. Here we are talking about the top three possible reasons for this latest attitude from the Whites.

    Real Madrid already have the in-form forwards Karim Benzema, Vinícius Junior and Marco Asensio. After the recent UEFA Champions League semi-finals, Brazilian youngster Rodrygo has also joined this list. The 21-year-old Brazilian stunned the football world with his incredible performance in the second leg of the recent UEFA Champions League semi-finals against Manchester City, which helped the Spanish club to reach the final of this tournament dramatically.

    Now, according to many media reports, Real Madrid are also aggressively trying to secure the 23-year-old French forward Kylian Mbappe in the forthcoming summer transfer window. The current Paris Saint-Germain forward has also reportedly been seen in Madrid recently, which makes the ongoing transfer rumours stronger.  

    As the Whites are targeting Mbappe more strongly, they have felt to not showing desperation for Haaland.

    Though the 21-year-old Erling Haaland is running very strongly in world football, recently he has faced some regular fitness issues which have raised some big concerns. In the ongoing season, Haaland has faced multiple fitness issues, especially muscular problems and hip flexor injury.

    Though Haaland has recovered well, it is not a good sign that a youngster is facing injuries consistently. Maybe Los Blancos have felt that they need to watch out for his fitness progress before considering him as a future prospect.

    Erling Haaland is playing senior first division football for more than five seasons, and he has shown his incredible goal-scoring talent since the 2019 summer. Moreover, the youngster is also very consistent in his outing for the national team. So, there is no doubt that he is growing as an extraordinary striker, but it may be a little early to see his possible future direction.

    Haaland is now set to move to the English Premier League, which is considered one of the most challenging football leagues. It will test the Norwegian footballer properly.

    While both the top-class footballers Haaland and Mbappe have been rated very high values, Los Blancos may have given more preference to Mbappe due to his more experience.

    While the 23-year-old French footballer Mbappe is a highly consistent performer for Paris Saint-Germain, he also played vital roles in the France national football team winning the FIFA World Cup 2018 trophy and UEFA Nations League 2020/21 trophy.

    The Whites may target Haaland in future after watching his performances in the Premier League.
