With the signing of Kylian Mbappe all but completed, Real Madrid well on their way to building a super-squad full of world-class players that can dominate the scene for several years.

But Florentino Perez has no intention of resting on his laurels and as has already been reported before, the Real Madrid president wishes to add Manchester City goal-machine Erling Haaland to his roster as well.

In fact, it has been suggested that the Merengues’ supremo would want to have both Mbappe and Haaland arrive this year, but that possibility seems unlikely at this point.

Haaland could leave in 2025

Amidst Real Madrid’s well-established interest, El Chiringuito TV is reporting that they might be able to get their hands on Haaland in the summer of 2025.

As per the report, the Norwegian striker has a pact with Manchester City which would allow him to leave the Etihad next year for a fee of €175 million.

Given how healthy Real Madrid’s finances have been in recent years, the fee is unlikely to be an issue.

However, the update regarding there being a pact between the player and Manchester City over an exit comes as a bit strange, considering previous reports have indicated that the Premier League and European champions are eager to tie Haaland down to a new contract.

Real Madrid were interested in Haaland in the summer of 2022 as well, but the striker opted to join Manchester City.

But, it has been suggested that donning the royal white jersey of the Spanish capital club remains a dream for the superstar striker.

Whether he gets to live that dream in the near future remains to be seen.

Speaking in an interview with Vamos (h/t Mundo Deportivo), Spain manager Luis de la Fuente has acknowledged that Real Madrid ace Jude Bellingham is the No. 1 footballer in the world currently.

Bellingham has enjoyed a spectacular debut season at Real Madrid and has been one of their chief protagonists as the Merengues won the La Liga and the Spanish Super Cup titles and made it to the UCL finals.

Even though his form has somewhat dipped in the latter stages of the season, the England international remains integral to Carlo Ancelotti’s plans and one of Los Blancos’ most important players.

And Spain manager Luis de la Fuente expressed his admiration for Bellingham, saying:

“He is a player who is doing particularly well. It’s a subjective view, but I like Bellingham’s style a lot, I like that type of player, powerful….”

When asked if Bellingham is the No. 1 player in the world at the moment, De la Fuente replied in the affirmative, as he said: “I think so.”

Bellingham has played 40 times in all competitions for Real Madrid this season, racking up a total of 23 goals and 12 assists in the process.

The 20-year-old’s exploits with Los Blancos in his debut campaign have put him in contention for the Ballon d’Or this year.

A strong performance in the finals of the UEFA Champions League next month and a solid run with England at the UEFA Euro 2024 could further his chances of winning the Golden Ball, although his teammate Vinicius Jr. is also an equally strong contender.
