A recent report from The Times has offered a detailed projection on the future of Erling Haaland.

Although the forward is only a year into his contract at Manchester City, his links to Real Madrid have not yet dissipated. As per the report, there is a genuine belief among many that Haaland will sooner or later ply his trade for Los Blancos, but the question is when.

Real Madrid had been monitoring Haaland since 2017. Although they could not pursue the Norwegian due to other priorities such as Vinicius Junior or Rodrygo, the club had always known about the young talent.

Real Madrid were sure about signing Haaland in 2022, especially after a productive meeting with the late Raiola and his father, Alf-Inge. However, the Norwegian ended up joining Manchester City due to the opportunity of being coached by Pep Guardiola.

He also did not like the fact that Real Madrid were already boasting the services of Karim Benzema, who was performing extremely well at the time.

But as we head into the summer transfer window, the outlook on the Real Madrid attacking department has changed, with many questioning the fitness of the ageing Benzema.

As per the report, Real Madrid are expected to go after Haaland in the summer of 2024. They can see the former Dortmund starlet plying his trade at the Santiago Bernabeu, especially knowing that his father had confirmed how the player wanted to play in every league.

Those who know Haaland well believe that he will one day play for Real Madrid, but the question is when.

There is a general feeling around the Manchester City camp that the forward will remain at the Etihad for at least three years. But given the way he has performed under Guardiola, he would likely stay for one more year.

That would mean Real Madrid would have to wait at least until 2026, if they are to receive any approval from Haaland.

Ancelotti-favourite defender will leave Real Madrid if club signs 23-year-old ace

With Kylian Mbappe’s signing now a completed objective, Real Madrid turn to what was always considered the second most critical operation of this summer – Alphonso Davies.

The Canadian full-back has been on Los Blancos’ radar for a while now, but with his contract with Bayern Munich running until 2025, his signing is seen to be a tad bit more complicated.

The Bavarians’ firm stance that they wish to persist with the speedster, needless to say, has only made the objective more complicated for Los Blancos.

No room for three

Despite Bayern Munich’s repeated advances towards Davies in recent weeks, Real Madrid are firm that they will attempt to sign the player this summer.

In light of the Canadian full-back’s possible arrival, Cadena SER reveals that Ferland Mendy will almost certainly leave Real Madrid if Davies’ signing is pulled off.

Carlo Ancelotti is clear that he has no room for three left-backs in his squad. One of Fran Garcia and Mendy must thus leave the Spanish capital in such a scenario and the Frenchman is better placed on that front.

Mendy’s current deal in Madrid runs out next year and the player has been informed that a decision over his future at the club will be taken shortly.

On track with Davies

The Spanish outlet also reveal that the Canadian speedster rejected an offer from Bayern Munich in recent hours and that his departure from the Bavarian capital is not ruled out.

Bayern Munich demand a sum of €50 million for the dynamic full-back. Real Madrid, however, have set a spending limit of €30 million for the youngster and will not exceed that sum in any scenario.

Vincent Kompany’s men thus have a critical decision to make, for allowing Davies to run down the final year on his deal may well back-fire as did the case of Kylian Mbappe with PSG.

Real Madrid, as it stands, appear to be in the driver’s seat.
