Erling Braut Haaland has been one of the standout teenagers this season. The 19-year-old striker has continued his goal-scoring form after securing a move to Borussia Dortmund in the winter.
Haaland started his Bundesliga career incredibly. He is the first player in Bundesliga history to score seven goals in his first three appearances in the competition. Incredibly, all of his first seven shots in Bundesliga has ended as goals.
Following his emergence in the top level of football, many European clubs have been linked with the Norwegian international. According to some reports, LaLiga giants Real Madrid have been keeping tabs on Haaland.
Erling Braut Haaland’s father Alf-Inge Haaland, former Manchester City midfielder thinks La Liga would be a good league for the 19-year-old striker. He told Diario AS: “I’m very happy for him and for Borussia Dortmund, although for me the most important thing is to keep growing like he has until now. Obviously, I’m proud.”
“Dortmund told us they needed someone like him and that the objective is to max out. This is a team fighting for the Bundesliga and will keep growing in European competition. It’s perfect for him to keep developing.”
After the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo in 2018, Real Madrid have struggled to find the back of the net. Benzema was beginning to come back to his old self at the start of this season, but his form has dropped drastically. New signing Luka Jovic hasn’t been effective either. He is still adjusting to the club and is finding it difficult to find his feet in one of Europe’s biggest clubs.
To solve their goalscoring problems, Real Madrid are thinking of signing the Borussia Dortmund striker. He has proven himself in Europe’s biggest stage, Champions League and has shown that he has it in himself to succeed at the highest level. This season till now, Haaland has scored more goals than the entire Real Madrid forward line combined.
Alf-Inge Haaland told about his son’s links with Real Madrid: “We are linked with one hundred clubs, but it’s true that the Spanish league is a really good one for my son, with great teams. You never know if he will go to Spain. Whatever is meant to be will happen.”
Real Madrid will go all out for Mbappe next season and if that doesn’t work out maybe they will turn their heads toward this teenage sensation. One thing for sure, Haaland won’t be a bad signing for any club.
