Erling Haaland and his entourage, who was recruited by Manchester City for 60 million euros, discussed the reasons for the Norwegian striker’s refusal to deal with Real Madrid.

Will they be able to sign Mbappe? “

Thanks to the desire of the largest European clubs, Erling Haaland made the decision to join Manchester City, after the English leaders paid 60 million euros, excluding the bonuses of the Norwegian striker, who was wearing the Borussia Dortmund shirt. Other courtiers of the Leeds native include Real Madrid. Like Paris Saint-Germain’s French striker Kylian Mbappe, the 22-year-old has been of great interest to Merengue’s management. But like ultimately fruitless discussions with the 2018 world champion, the White House failed to persuade Erling Haaland, under contract until June 2027 with the 2022 England champion, to settle alongside the Santiago Bernabeu.

10 goals in 6 matches in the English Premier League

Why did the main interested party say no? In an interview given to ViaplayCitizens’ new gunner broke his silence on his refusal to accept the challenge of the current Spanish champion and recent Champions League winner. “How can you say no to a legendary club like Real Madrid? Good question. You really can’t do that.” His father was also questioned, his father Alf Inge Haaland was more gossip and reveals that Real Madrid missed his son because of Kylian Mbappe. “We had a benchmark in mind, who needs a 9? Manchester City was 10, it was the perfect choice, while Real Madrid was 5 or 6 because of the way Benzema is playing now. Will they be able to sign Mbappe?”

Perhaps those around him expected the former Monaco to arrive at Real Madrid, which made his arrival impossible. With Manchester City, Erling Haaland has been on fire since the opening of the 2022-2023 season with 10 goals in just 6 matches of the Premier League.
