Over the past few weeks, reports have emerged that Manchester City forward Erling Haaland is ready to trade the English Premier League for Spain, leading to the speculation that both Real Madrid and Barcelona could be on the hunt.

Adding to the story, SPORT has mentioned that the footballer’s father, Alf-Inge Haaland, continues to maintain regular contact with the two La Liga teams in order to explore opportunities for a possible transfer.

At this moment, it can be argued that everything related to Haaland is right. Some claim that Real Madrid still have their eye on the forward. On the other hand, some suggest that Barcelona might make a move for the Norwegian in 2026 or 2025 itself

But what’s the story?

Haaland and his representatives have a clear plan: he wants to move from playing in the English Premier League to the Spanish La Liga when the time is right. However, it is tricky to pinpoint when and where this switch will happen.

Haaland himself has been vocal about his desire to play in Spain. In fact, he loves the lifestyle there and often visits to enjoy the weather, food, and nightlife. 

In order to turn his dream into reality, his father has been working hard, but such a big transfer depends on timing, especially when top clubs have openings for a star striker like Haaland.

Real Madrid or Barcelona?

At present, Real Madrid seem like a promising option, especially after Karim Benzema’s departure. Barcelona, on the other hand, have Robert Lewandowski and recently invested in younger talent like Vitor Roque.

The aforementioned outlet mentions that Haaland’s representatives have been in talks with Real Madrid, hoping to secure a move. However, their efforts hit a snag in January after it emerged that Kylian Mbappe would be arriving.

But Haaland’s camp is not losing hope and will keep an eye on how Carlo Ancelotti’s team evolves next season, while also tracking the situation of Vinicius Jr. and whether he stays or leaves amid rising racist incidents against him.

City’s troubles are everybody’s gain

Meanwhile, it is to be noted that Manchester City’s potential punishment for financial misconduct could put them in a difficult situation.

This could create an opportunity for Haaland to leave, but predicting when this might happen is tough, especially considering Barcelona’s financial struggles.

Although there is nothing concrete yet, Haaland’s team remains hopeful. They are keeping in touch with Real Madrid and Barcelona, waiting for the right moment to make their move. 

They believe that eventually, one of the Spanish giants will make a move but for now, it is a waiting game, balancing between different possibilities and building relationships with both clubs.

Spain midfielder credits Real Madrid assistant manager for career success

Spain’s European Championship campaign so far has been one filled with revelations. From young Lamine Yamal and Nico Williams on the wings to the ever-so-solid midfield, La Roja have impressed across the park and have taken the tournament by storm.

One such player who has played a critical role for the team despite not being in many pundits’ squad for the tournament is Fabian Ruiz. The PSG midfielder has been sensational for Luis de la Fuente’s men so far, scoring once and providing one assist in two games.

Despite not having any direct links with Real Madrid, the Spanish midfielder interestingly credits Davide Ancelotti for his success and AS brings the story.

A chapter in Naples

Fabian Ruiz may have never played for Los Blancos in his career so far, but he crossed paths with the Ancelottis in Naples a few years ago.

Ruiz signed for the Italian club from Real Betis in 2018 for a fee of €30 million. At the time, he was not known widely and was just seen as another routine Spanish midfielder aspiring to make it big.

As revealed by the player in a recent interview, however, it was Carlo Ancelotti’s son and Real Madrid assistant manager Davide Ancelotti who first saw the spark in him.

“Meeting him was a very important step in my career. From the beginning, he backed me, and it was not easy to pay what Napoli paid for me, a player who had not played much in La Liga with Betis.”

“If it weren’t for him, I wouldn’t be here. I have a very good relationship and friendship with him,” he added.

A special eye

Ruiz’s comments on Davide Ancelotti only make it clearer as to why Carlo Ancelotti holds his son’s advice in high regard. It is, after all, a testament to the tactician’s keen eye for special talent.

As revealed earlier this year, it was the manager’s son who suggested Joselu’s substitution against Bayern Munich in the UEFA Champions League semifinals when the team was on the brink of elimination.

What happened next was history as the veteran scored twice within minutes to turn the game around and send the Bavarians crashing out.

Davide has been rumoured to be interested in walking his own path soon as a specialist coach, but as it stands, will continue working under his father for at least one more year at Real Madrid.
