Real Madrid plan move for Erling Haaland in 2024

AS report that Real Madrid are planning a move for striker Erling Haaland in 2024.

The Spanish giants want to trigger the €150m exit clause in Haaland’s Manchester City contract.

It’s a clause that Haaland included in his City deal because he remains open to becoming a Madrid player in the future.

Madrid president Florentino Pérez told Spanish TV show El Chiringuito earlier this week that the club’s interest in Haaland is independent of their failed effort to land PSG’s Kylian Mbappé.

The European champions wanted to sign Mbappé this summer and Haaland in 2023 at the earliest. Madrid had asked the Norway international to wait another year before leaving Borussia Dortmund, but the player eventually choose a switch to join Pep Guardiola’s City.

The death of Haaland’s agent Mino Raiola also had an influence on the player’s decision to go to City. Within Haaland’s camp, Raiola, who died in April at the age of 54, was the chief champion of Madrid as the ideal destination for the striker.

Haaland’s agent was also eager to finally take Haaland to the Santiago Bernabéu, having failed to broker a deal between Los Blancos and his client Paul Pogba.

The €150m exit clause valid from 2024 is seen in the Spanish capital as the key that will unlock a future deal for Haaland.

Madrid are not in a hurry to sign Haaland because in two years’ time he will still only be 23.
