Former Real Madrid player claims Erling Haaland wants to play at the Santiago Bernabeu

There is much excitement at Real Madrid in light of Kylian Mbappe’s likely arrival at Santiago Bernabeu in the coming summer.

Regarded as one of the best players in world football, Mbappe looks set to join Real Madrid on a free transfer and bolster the club’s attacking unit.

That means Real Madrid could potentially have Mbappe, Vinicius Junior and Rodrygo leading the frontline this season.

But despite such an upgrade, Real Madrid have not turned their back on another strategic target in Erling Haaland.

The Norwegian has been on Real Madrid’s radar for quite some time now and it is Florentino Perez’s dream to have him on the same team as Mbappe.

Haaland wants to play for Real Madrid: Guti

Given that Real Madrid are set to sign Mbappe this summer, going after Haaland will be next to impossible. In any case, the star striker appears to be happy at Man City, at least for now.

That is primarily because of the presence of Pep Guardiola. It has been reported in the past that Guardiola’s potential exit from Man City could also lead to the departure of Haaland, with Real Madrid emerging as a potential destination.

To that end, former Real Madrid player Guti has made an eye-catching statement at El Chiringuito recently, claiming that the Norwegian international is keen on playing for Los Blancos.

“Haaland wants to play for Real Madrid,” said Guti, who had played for the Real Madrid senior team for almost a decade and a half.

Guti’s comments will certainly inspire the Real Madrid board, as they look to realise their long-term goal of signing Haaland.

In the meantime, though, the Norwegian is very much a Manchester City player and that is unlikely to change, at least in the next 12 months.

Real Madrid are just days away from their highly anticipated Champions League final showdown against Borussia Dortmund.

Once the final has been played, planning for the summer transfer window will be in full swing, with the topic of arrivals and departures likely to be discussed.

One of the players facing an uncertain future is Nacho Fernandez. The Real Madrid captain has yet to disclose his future ambitions, despite nearing the end of his contract.

Nacho opens up about future

While he previously claimed that he had already made his decision, a shift in tone can be observed now, with Nacho asserting that he will soon sit with the club and his family to evaluate the best course of action

For now, the 34-year-old remains focused on the Champions League final and does not wish to draw any unnecessary attention.

“Future? The focus is on the final now. After that, I will sit with the club, Ancelotti and my family and I’ll decide what’s the best thing for me,” he told El Chiringuito.

Fernandez acknowledges the fans’ support

Additionally, the veteran centre-back claimed that he does need a grand farewell to know how much the Madrid faithful appreciate him.

“That love the fans have for Toni is the same they have for me. I don’t need a farewell to know the fans love me,” he reflected.

Nacho has devoted his entire career to Real Madrid, rising through the ranks from the youth academy and spending over two decades with the Merengues.

However, he has alluded to the possibility of perhaps donning the colours of a different jersey.

“Sometimes the circumstances are not right to be a ‘one club man’,” he cryptically claimed.
