Real Madrid have become subject to a very definitive demand from one of their primary targets and an incredibly good player.
Real Madrid are expected to go all in during the next two years as they look to finalize their squad rebuild with promising youngsters. With the signings of Eduardo Camavinga and Kylian Mbappe on the cards for 2021, the Merengues are prioritizing on Erling Haaland for the summer of 2022 and are optimistic about landing him.
Haaland has a gentleman’s agreement with Borussia Dortmund over a departure in 2022 and Florentino Perez is already thought to be planning a grand arrival by saving funds for the former RB Salzburg striker. Besides the monetary aspect, his compatriot in Martin Odegaard is expected to play a crucial role in convincing Haaland to sign.
At the age of just 20, Erling Haaland has scored 75 goals in 122 matches across all competitions in his career for club and country. The young striker continues to make and break records every time he sets foot on the Champions League, so it is no surprise that the 13-time European champions are considering a move for him and already planning for it.
Diario GOL reports that the Norway international has made a crucial demand prior to a potential move to the Santiago Bernabeu. From his arrival into the Spanish capital, Haaland wants to be the outright number one in terms of the pecking order for strikers. The player will not accept an understudy’s role behind Karim Benzema at any cost.
Los Blancos seem completely according to Haaland’s idea of being a starter and expect Zinedine Zidane to agree upon the same. By 2022, Benzema will be closer to 35 years old and get ready to accept a fringe role, at least as per his club’s expectations. Given that all their plans are falling in place, it would be exciting to see the Whites’ squad a few years down the line.
With Real Madrid potentially having an attacking trio of Vinicius Junior, Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe less than two years from now, they have the potential to rewrite the illustrious era from the club’s very early history from the late 1950s wherein they won five successive European Cups. With a few defenders, the squad would be a complete package.
