Erling Haaland defines his future: today, closer to Barcelona than Real Madrid

Without a doubt, the signing of Erling Haaland will be the next great duel between Barcelona and Real Madrid in the pass market. Although the 21-year-old striker has a contract with Borussia Dortmund until 2024, he could leave before paying the recession clause.

Despite the fact that the club denied having entered into negotiations for the scorer, the interest of the two greats of Spanish football is more than firm.

The fact is that from Madrid they dream of a duo between Mbappé and Haaland, while Laporta, beyond the financial fluctuations of Barcelona, ​​has proposed to sign the young star of Borussia Dortmund, which many assure has real interest in becoming the leader of the sports project of the culé.

“The last six months I preferred not to say anything out of respect for Dortmund, but now the club has started to pressure me to make a decision. All I want is to play football, but they pressure me to make a decision about my future. That means I have to make a decision soon”, declared the Norwegian days ago.

Meanwhile, the coach of Dortmund, Marco Rose, does not seem to be so concerned about the possible departure of the scorer: “It is not an important issue for us” he assured in the conference prior to the match for the German Cup that they later lost 2-1 with the modest St. Pauli, and in which Haaland scored the discount with a penalty.

There is a reality, and that is that for Haaland to land at another club, he will have to take charge of the termination clause of the contract amounting to 75 million euros ($86 million).

So far, not only Real Madrid and Barcelona are the only possible destinations for the young scorer, who accumulates 77 goals in 76 games for Borussia Dortmund. From the Premier League, Chelsea and Manchester City have enough capital to acquire the striker’s services, as does PSG, especially if Kylian Mbappé decides to leave in the middle of the year.

Not all clubs are in the “war” for the signing of Erling Haaland, because after ending his contract with Nike in December, The striker will have to decide between the possible brands for his sponsorship, which could tip the situation in favor of Real Madrid.

Is that among the options for the millionaire contract are the German brand Adidas, which in turn is the main sponsor of the merengue team, which could be favored through a marketing “strategy”. In any case, everything seems to indicate that the main candidate would be Puma.

Until now, the Scandinavian striker had pocketed one million euros a year to wear the brand of the pipe but, according to reports in various media outlets, Puma’s offer would amount to eight million a year.
