Erling Haaland’s representative, Rafaela Pimenta, has said that if there is any clause inserted in the forward’s contract related to Real Madrid, it is only known to Manchester City, the player, his father and her, and nobody else.
It is to be noted that Pimenta was spotted at Santiago Bernabeu a few days back, but as reported before, the purpose of her visit was not at all related to the plausible transfer of Haaland to Madrid.
Haaland is the master of his destiny
Speaking in an interview with Jorge Picon, Pimenta shed light on his client’s future, saying that he is the master of his destiny.
“Erling is the master of his destiny. Not just now but his entire life and 100%,” she said.
“What I mean is that you have to use balance. We, club and player, we are all in the same boat. Things have to be talked about, and treated, in such a way that everyone is okay.
“I think it is not necessary to say that Erling does what he wants. That is not true. Erling is always going to do what is good for him and his club, Manchester City.
“When everyone is willing to make a change, it will be done. He’s not the type of player who’s going to say ‘I’m leaving, bye, I don’t want to know anything.'”
“It is not like this. And it’s not going to happen because respect comes before everything. If they give it to him, he will give it too,” she explained.
Haaland is happy in Manchester
It is no secret that Haaland is loving life in Manchester and for Real Madrid to break the forward’s partnership with Pep Guardiola, it is going to take more than money to convince him to move.
While speaking about it, the agent said: “Respect comes from both sides. I have no doubt that they will respect it too. If one day something has to happen, everything will be agreed upon. Because there is respect for understanding the other’s position.
“Discuss and conclude. Solutions will always be found.”
Eventually, when the question regarding the infamous Real Madrid-specific clause was asked, she said there is no club mentioned in his contract, but even if there is, it is only known to a handful of people.
“No. Erling’s contract is known to Manchester City, his father, himself, me, and nobody else,” she said.
Guardiola is infamous for having a feud with top strikers, such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and even Samuel Eto’o. When asked about her client’s relationship with the manager, she said,
“You have to ask Erling this, but as far as I know, from the feedback I have, they get along very well.”
Answering the question of whether or not the forward is happy in Manchester, she added,
“You have to ask him too. And this does not mean the opposite. I know he is, but I don’t like to speak for others. I see it like this: the sporting result comes when things are good. When there is positivity, harmony, energy, things come.”
Real Madrid youngster in line for significant minutes against Granada – report
Nico Paz was long hyped as Real Madrid Castilla’s brightest upcoming star. The media constantly kept the spotlight on the young Argentine through pre-season as he made a strong impression under Carlo Ancelotti in preseason.
His breakthrough eventually arrived, courtesy of Real Madrid’s injury crisis. He has now made two appearances for the team in La Liga and the UEFA Champions League and even recorded his first goal for the club earlier this week against Napoli.
Taking his chances
As revealed by AS (h/t The Madrid Zone), Paz has impressed management with his cameo against Napoli and will be called up for Real Madrid’s clash against Granada tomorrow.
In fact, there is a good chance he sees significant game time on the night.
After all, Ancelotti is without the likes of Luka Modric, Aurelien Tchouameni and Eduardo Camavinga in the middle of the park.
With Toni Kroos, Dani Ceballos, Federico Valverde, and Jude Bellingham filling the starting spots, Paz serves as the manager’s first-choice backup off the bench.
Paz voices his elation
Paz’s introduction against Napoli changed the texture of the game, and it was only poetic that he got the goal that put Real Madrid ahead again on the night.
Speaking to the media after his special night, the Castilla star did not hold back on his emotions.
“This is a dream. For a moment I didn’t even believe it. Very happy to be able to help the team. I dared. I was in automatic mode, I didn’t even know what I was doing. I hit it and well.”
“This is also a message for the other youth players: it is possible to get there. Ancelotti congratulated me, and the whole staff. They are an incredible group and I want to thank them all,” he added, urging his Castilla teammates to keep pushing.
