Erling Haaland has ruled his future in Spain, with reports suggesting he has warned Premier League strikers he will not listen to their requests this summer.
The Borussia Dortmund striker is the most wanted player in the world. In England, there are interest in Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea, and Liverpool, while Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain both want to keep him in big Europe.
However, according to SPORT, Haaland is only interested in moving to La Liga, where Barcelona and Real Madrid are vying for his signature.
That much has been made clear to City, especially in the recent meeting between the leaders of the Premier League and the Haaland team. His father, Alf-Inge, used to play for City and there were rumors that he was pushing his son to the Etihad, but young Haaland only focused on La Liga.
It is seen as the next two-horse race for Haaland, with Real and Barcelona both planning to throw huge sums of money at the Norwegian international in an effort to win the race to sign him.
Barcelona is ready to pay its 75 million euro release clause and wants to offer him a five-year contract worth 100 million euros, and they are working to convince Alf-Inge and agent Mino Raiola to accept their payments by stops.
That could give them a chance to overtake Real, who wish to sign Haaland but would like to sign him in 2023 when Karim Benzema’s contract at the Santiago Bernabeu expires.
However, it was reported on Friday that Real have an agreement to reject the Norwegian player for the first time if he decides to leave BVB this summer, although they may struggle to support the deal.
Real are focused on getting Kylian Mbappe’s signature on a free transfer and are reluctant to offer two big pay per package the same summer, especially as they still have Benzema, one of the world’s top strikers, on the books of 12 others. months.
