Preferential agreement. That is the exact term with which Spain refers to the link that would already exist between the Real Madrid and Erling Haland, after a decisive summit held by directors of the ‘white’ club and the father of the Norwegian footballer in Monaco. The agreement, although it is not a closed signing, puts the Madrid club at an advantage over the rest of the teams that are bidding for the Borussia Dortmund striker.
According to the Catalan newspaper ‘Sport’, Madrid have reached an agreement with Alfie Haaland, the forward’s father, and Rafaela Pimienta, Mino Raiola’s lawyer and the Italian’s right-hand man, who is currently in poor health in Italy.
The summit took place in Monaco, where “the meeting was conceived after the contacts to probe the signing (…) of Tchouaméni,” says the aforementioned media. Aurélien Tchouaméni would be on Madrid’s radar for the future.
Now, they explain, the ball is in the field of Haland: “If he decides to leave Borussia next summer, Real Madrid will be obliged to sign him without waiting for the year that would have asked him for an extension”.
Luka Jovic enters the operation
What’s next, if finally Haland makes the decision to pack up and leave Signal Iduna Park, it would mean reaching an agreement precisely with Borussia Dortmund. ‘Sport’ indicates that the starting price, commissions aside, would be 75 million euros. Of course, if this happens, Florentino Pérez is practically obliged to sign him.
This amount, the Real Madridfor his part, would try to file down including Luka Jovic in the operation, a striker who showed at Eintracht that, in form, he can be a terror for rivals in the Bundesliga.
Thus, in the midst of the hurricane caused by Mbappé, his exhibition against Madrid and PSG’s last desperate attempts to retain him, Haland.
City and Guardiola will still try
According to ‘Football Insider’, the ‘citizens’ are preparing an imminent offer to Borussia Dortmund for their great star. The aforementioned medium ensures that the Manchester City will submit a proposal for €80 million to sign the Norwegian striker.
The interest of City by Haland It’s not recent, but a few weeks ago the newspaper ‘As’ gave an account of the pressure that Guardiola had been exerting on the directors of his club for accelerating and going for the Dortmund attacker.
The Catalan coach lost Agüero and more recently Ferran Torres, with whom he had as a battering ram. In that sense, he has stayed with Gabriel Jesús as the only specialist. In addition, the signing of Julián Álvarez is a bet for the future, which is why his rush to Haland.
