Manchester City are upping the ante on the striker, who, for his part, told Raiola that his priority is playing the new Bernabeu alongside Mbappe.

The situation

Pep Guardiola crossed paths with Haaland. The Manchester City manager asked his club to make a determined effort for the Norwegian striker, who in turn instructed his agent Mino Raiola to reach an agreement with Real Madrid as soon as possible. City’s oil dollars are changing the situation as Real Madrid cannot directly bid with the club / government. He also cannot face Holland’s signing without releasing wages. The savings resulting from the losses of Bale, Marcelo, and Isco, who end their contract in June, will serve to match Mbappe’s card once their signature is spent. But adding Haaland also requires freeing up space at the top of the paycheck. Azar’s exit that could serve this purpose is very difficult. The Belgian wants to fulfill his contract and achieve success in Madrid. Added to these circumstances is Pep Guardiola’s insistence on hiring Holland. The Catalan coach lost Aguero, and more recently Ferran Torres, who was his striker. He stayed with Gabriel Jesus as the only specialist. Hence his insistence on signing Haaland, of whom the only unknown is that he has accumulated 52 days this season due to, directly or indirectly, a bloody hip flexor injury. 

Real Madrid’s advantage

Real’s only big advantage is that Holland wants to play in the new Bernabeu and, along with Mbappe, participate in the resurgence of a galactic team, a bloc similar to Real’s in the first decade of the century. … He told about this to his agent Mino Raiola, who restored harmony with the management of the club after several years of cold, almost non-existent relationship. His visit to Valdebebas, together with Holland’s own father, was highly appreciated by both, who arrived in the capital at the request of their client to build bridges with Real Madrid.
