Speaking on Onda Cero, former Real Madrid sporting director, Jorge Valdano, admitted he believes the Spanish club should aim to sign Erling Haaland before PSG’s Kylian Mbappé.

I would sign Haaland before Mbappé. He moves in small and large spaces, he scores with great consistency. Understanding that Mbappé is a star, I am very impressed with Haaland. He scores all types of goals.”

The Argentine football analyst went on to discuss Martin Odegaard’s time at Madrid. “He lacked patience. A Madrid player should have a greater capacity for suffering, he must not give up too soon. And even less so being so young and competing for the position of two stars like Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. They are not just any two players.”
