Real Madrid’s interest in Erling Haaland is out in the open. Last summer, the Los Blancos decided to focus on Kylian Mbappe as he would arrive on a free transfer and this gave Haaland his ticket to sign for Manchester City from Borussia Dortmund.

Madrid’s attentiveness towards the Norweigian will continue to persist, especially during the 2024 summer transfer window. This is exactly why his visit to Santiago Bernabeu was expected to be special. As it turns out, the off-the-field issues related to his father pulled him away from the limelight.

Alf-Inge Haaland was present at the venue and he was booed by the Madrid supporters after he allegedly threw peanuts into the public. Haaland Sr. and Madrid fans threw some gestures toward each other before the former was evicted from the scene.

Responding to the scene that was created, the footballer’s father explained, “Madrid were not happy because we celebrated De Bruyne’s goal and we had to move because the fans were not happy either. I didn’t do that (throw peanuts at the public). 

“It isn’t true. We had some good banter with the Madrid fans. They weren’t happy when City scored. Normal. Then we had to move 50 meters away. Nothing else. Everyone is happy. Well almost…”.

Now, regardless of what happened between the fans and his father, the fact remains that he is going to be the main objective for Real Madrid for the summer of 2024. 

According to AS, despite having a contract with City until 2027, a termination clause will come into effect in 2024, where he can leave the team if Madrid pay an amount of around €220 – €240 million.

Haaland’s time at the Bernabeu wasn’t really fruitful as the striker was outsmarted by Antonio Rudiger to the extent that he completed a mere 12 passes on the night, eight of which came in Madrid’s half. He lost possession five times and had only two shots on target without any danger.

But regardless of what happened on the night, Madrid will not lose track of his progress as, after all, he has scored 51 goals this season.

Real Madrid will discuss new deal for Spanish forward until 2027 – Romano

Real Madrid have officially announced the first departure of the 2022/23 season as Marco Asensio leaves the club on a free transfer. The Spaniard was part of the Madrid setup for eight years, and leaves with three Champions Leagues and La Ligas to his name.

With Vinicius Jr, Rodrygo, and Eden Hazard in the team, Asensio was the only winger in the team who preferred to play on the right rather than on the left. His left-footedness was also crucial for this.

Madrid will now have to assess the market for replacements, even though they will be handed one themselves in the summer in the form of Brahim Diaz. The Spaniard finishes his loan spell at AC Milan in the summer, and will return to Madrid.

Madrid will have to make a final call on his future, but as of now, are ready to discuss a new long-term deal for and with Diaz, as per a report published by Fabrizio Romano. The extension will be valid until 2027.

Diaz, now 23, initially joined Real Madrid from Manchester City in 2019, completing a €18 million move in the search of game-time. Six appearances in six months later, though, he moved to AC Milan on loan, and has been there since.

However, getting him to stay at Madrid will be difficult, as the player evidently wants to continue at Milan for the foreseeable future. He even suggested his desire to continue in a recent interview.

“I’m happy here at Milan. I feel very good at this club, then I don’t know what is going to happen. I kissed the badge because that’s what I felt at that moment,” he said.

They want him to replace Asensio at the Santiago Bernabeu, but will not force him to stay if he wants to leave.
