Real Madrid have been linked with a move for Erling Haaland for a while now. It is not hard to see why either. Los Blancos are in need of a striker right now. Karim Benzema is 35 years of age and has faced his struggles with injuries in recent times. And the club do not have any real cover for him in the squad either.
When it comes to strikers, there are not many better in the world than Erling Haaland. There is an argument to be made that he could be the very best.
Yes, sometimes, he might struggle to get into a game. But there is no way one could argue with the sheer numbers that he is putting up. Haaland has scored 47 goals for Manchester City already this season.
That is ridiculous to say the very least. And he could be the one to finally guide Manchester City to the Champions League title.
Real Madrid make Haaland transfer decision
It looks like Real Madrid have made a decision regarding Haaland. And it also involves the future of Benzema at the club.
Real Madrid want Haaland to be Benzema’s successor in 2024, TF1′s Telefoot programme in France (via AS) explain in an extensive report on the Manchester City player.
To be very honest, Haaland could be the perfect replacement for Benzema. There is very little doubt that the Norwegian is one of the next big stars of the game, if he is not at that level already.
On the other hand, there have also been rumours that Real Madrid would look to sign Kylian Mbappe as a free agent in the summer of 2024. If Los Blancos are able to bring both in at the same time, then it could turn out to be the best transfer window in the history of the game.
