STATEMENTS Erling Haaland does not appreciate that Borussia Dortmund is pressing him to decide on his future, the Norwegian says he is ready to make a decision. Zapping Goal! Football Club Real Madrid: the 10 biggest sales of the Merengues Asked about his future after the match between Freiburg and his team Borussia Dortmund (1-5) where he also scored a double, Erling Haaland did not not hide his annoyance at his situation in Germany. “Borussia Dortmund are now pushing me to make a decision on some things but I just want to play football. This probably means that I will soon have to make things happen (…) I have never spoken until now to respect the club”, slipped the Norwegian striker. A time bomb that the CEO of Borussia Hans-Joachim Watzke tried to defuse in stride: “He is a spontaneous person. He has the right to do that. There is no problem with Erling but he must also understand our situation. We can’t wait until the end of May.” If it is quite unlikely that a transfer will take place in January (few clubs have the financial means to pay more than the release clause which will be activated next summer!), it does not do much of doubts that the Cyborg is on the hunt for a future club. A future club that he hopes, according to many sources, in Spain – and more precisely on the side of Real Madrid – but will the scenario really be written like that? On the side of Real Madrid, we do not have the weapons to beat CityAs mentioned in recent hours, Manchester City and Pep Guardiola have made a comeback on the file. The British club, leader of the Premier League, is still looking for a “n°9” and has made space in its workforce with the departures of Kun Agüero and Ferran Torres. Spanish transfer journalist for Marca and OK Diario, Ramón Álvarez de Mon is pessimistic about Real Madrid’s chances of beating the Citizens if the two are on the case: “Real Madrid will not be able to compete with Manchester City for Haaland in economic terms. The Whites will put €90m for the signing of Kylian Mbappé (€40 transfer fee and €50m gross annual salary), so they can’t make as large an outlay as the English side can. In the event of offensives, the Madridistas will withdraw from this one-upmanship. However, the player’s desire would be to wear white, ”says the person concerned.
