Mbappé? Haaland? Both? Real Madrid already have their planning done for next season, as Ancelotti pointed out yesterday during his pre-match press conference, and the future of the club depends on the resolution of the above questions. The arrival of the Frenchman is a matter of time, while the Norwegian has chosen the white team, but at Santiago Bernabeu they must make the final decision and position themselves. It is time for meetings and half of Europe is attentive to the unfolding of the events. Norway can’t be left out of the debate at the moment.
“We can speculate until we turn green, but Haaland will wear the Real Madrid shirt”. This is how forceful Per-Jarle Heggelund, famous football commentator from the Nordic country, is. The Norwegian newspaper ‘VG’ has consulted several experts. Most of them see Haaland at the Bernabéu. “He chooses Real Madrid, because they are the biggest club and Haaland will play for the biggest club,” adds Heggelund.
Petter Veland is a specialist in Spanish football, he is a regular analyst at ‘Viaplay’ and considers that the fight will be a matter of two. “Manchester City is a very exciting sporting project. They need him. There is also the sentimental part, with his father having played there (Alf-Inge Haaland played for City between 2000 and 2003). That’s what children usually dream of. In addition, they have finances in order,” he exposes, defending the options of the team trained by Guardiola, who was left without ‘9’ in summer, when Daniel Levy did not allow Kane leave Tottenham.
However, he does not rule out Madrid: “Real Madrid have a young and exciting team and everything would probably go smoothly. Going to the Premier League would be reaching the top, but choosing Madrid is also a first-class destination and can take that step. The next step will be to one side or the other. I feel like the wind is blowing towards the Spanish capital.”
