Borussia Dortmund they allegedly quoted their asking price Real Madrid meta Erlinga Halanda. The striker has been in incredible form since joining Dortmund and has been on the radar of many European peaks.
According to diarioMadridista, Real Madrid sees Halland as Cristiano Ronaldo’s successor and wants to bring in the Norwegian for the summer. However, the report also states that Borussia Dortmund will not sell the striker for less than 150 million euros.
It will be very difficult for Real Madrid to match this figure, as the club is currently in a financial hole due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Zinedine Zidane reportedly planning a massive summer clean-up to provoke a big pump in the upcoming transition period. The French tactician sees Halland as a more achievable option than his compatriot Kylian Mbappe.
Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Barcelona are also interested in buying Norwegian services. But it seems that Los Blancos are currently the favorites for the landing of Holland.
Haaland has been in outstanding form this season, scoring 28 goals in 29 appearances in all competitions.
The Norwegian has scored 49 goals in as many appearances since joining Borussia Dortmund last summer and has already been named one of the best strikers in the world.
Real Madrid footballers excited about the prospects of signing Hollande
The potential signing of players of Dutch caliber understandably gave the fans a reason to rejoice. But Real Madrid players also seem excited about the prospect of the Norwegian hitman arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu.
Captain of Real Madrid Sergio Ramos he was asked to choose between Halland and Mbappe if he was the manager. The Spaniard told reporters:
“Haland or Mbappe if I were a coach? I would like both, but the coach doesn’t sign. Maybe, due to the circumstances and the current situation, today I think it would be a little easier to sign Haland. It would never be bad to strengthen Madrid with 9 like Haland, who has something which we don’t have: speed, hunger, height … And Mbappe has it, of course, but today it would be much easier to come to terms with Haland. “
Karim Benzema was also asked about the potential arrival of Hollande in the summer. The French striker is one of the greatest Real Madrid players of all time, leading the club’s line for more than ten years.
But the striker’s time in Madrid seems to be approaching his career twilight. A player like Halland will be considered a natural replacement for Benzema in advance.
I’m talking to the press, Benzema seemed bullish towards the potential arrival of the Norwegians at Real Madrid:
“How am I going to talk about a player who is not in our club? Which Sergio [Ramos] he said the other day that it was Sergio’s thoughts. I’ve been here a long time and every year we talk about strikers who could score goals for Real Madrid. Haaland is a young player who scores a lot of goals at his club. This is all. He has to work hard to help his team. And if one day he has a chance to come to Madrid and if he wants to, he would join us. That’s it.”
