Real Madrid plan to make a move for Manchester City superstar in 2024

As question marks continue to rise over Real Madrid following their recent dip in form, the Merengues are calm over the situation and are not going to make any hasty decisions with regard to the coaching staff or the squad.

However, that does not mean that there are some concerns within the club’s offices and a framework for the future is already being mapped out so that the transition from the current veteran stars such as Karim Benzema, Luka Modric and Toni Kroos is smooth.

To that end, AS is reporting that Real Madrid intend to make a move for Manchester City superstar Erling Haaland in the summer of 2024, when a release clause in his contract will become active.

The Norwegian international was on the Merengues’ agenda last summer as well. But they decided to pursue the signing of Kylian Mbappe, which did not pan out. Plus the presence of Benzema was another factor that compelled Haaland to choose Manchester City.

Since joining Pep Guardiola’s side, the 22-year-old has been tearing apart defences, having already scored 27 goals in 24 matches across all competitions.

As iterated earlier, Haaland’s contract reportedly contains a release clause worth around €180 million, which will come into effect in 2024. And Real Madrid intend to take advantage of that by launching a move for the centre-forward.

It must be noted that Benzema’s current contract expires this year, but he is expected to renew for another season. By the time the 2023/24 campaign gets over, he will be 36 years old and could likely call time on his career or move on from Real Madrid.

It would pave the way for Haaland to arrive at the Santiago Bernabeu, although it must also be noted that Real Madrid have signed Endrick from Palmeiras, who will also be joining the club in 2024.

Either way, Haaland remains firmly on Los Blancos’ agenda and it remains to be seen if they move in for him in eighteen months’ time.

Real Madrid maintain full confidence in Turkish starlet despite injury woes

Arda Guler’s Real Madrid stint has not gotten off to the start he would have hoped to have given the expectation that preceded the transfer.

Having joined in the summer after Real Madrid outbid their competition to win him over from Fenerbahce for a 20-million-euro fee, buzz was high as the winger was expected to slot into the team quite seamlessly, albeit on a rotational basis.

Unfortunately for the 18-year-old, he has been constantly marred by injuries since completing the move.

Reports have stated that after Guler picked up his third injury since his move, Real Madrid have been concerned and want to take things slow with the player to ensure he is fit as soon as possible after an injury to his quadriceps this time.

The Turk is yet to make his competitive debut for the club, and Real Madrid even sacked their medical chief in November, in light of their injury crises since the beginning of the season.

No loan deal for Guler

However, according to Fabrizio Romano in a recent YouTube video, he states that Madrid maintain full trust and patience in the youngster.

Despite his bad luck with injuries, the latest of which he is scheduled to return from after Christmas, the Galacticos have no intention of loaning out Guler to Turkish clubs despite lots of speculation of them doing so of late.

Romano states that Madrid remain firm on not shaking things up too much with the squad, and they want to keep their roster stable, including Arda Guler.

They want to extend their full support and protection to the player as he aims to return to full fitness and finally make his bow for Madrid either by the end of this month or in 2024.
