Operation Galactic: Haaland, more feasible than Mbappé

The Norwegian is already worth 110 million according to Transfermarkt, but far from the 180 million for the French. His file would also be more manageable. Madrid will go for one of the two.


Erling Haaland (20) is one of the jewels of the transfer market. Real Madrid monitors each step of the forward, currently at Borussia Dortmund, waiting for the exact moment to go for him. This summer may be the indicated date. Although the main objective is Kylian Mbappé (22), the club wants to sign a star this coming summer and, if this option gets complicated, they will go for the Norwegian, as reported by Josep Pedrerol in El Chiringuito.

The financial aspect will be key when deciding. From that point of view, the arrival of Haaland is much more feasible than that of Mbappé. Borussia Dortmund's has a value of 110 million euros according to Transfermarkt, far from the 180 that the attacker PSG has. Although they are estimates and calculate that Haaland will have a higher price, the club is aware that the outlay will be lower in one case than in the other. And not only in the purchase but also in the salary. Erling is currently earning around 8 million euros net per season, while Mbappé, more than 22. A notable difference of 14 million.

Both have concerns about playing for Real Madrid, and would be willing to listen to any proposal from the white club, but Haaland has the approval of Dortmund. As this newspaper reported, the German club made a commitment with its agent, Mino Raiola, to facilitate the exit if he wanted a change of scene. In theory, this condition would come into force in 2022, but the bad sports situation (in the Bundesliga they are out of the positions that give access to European competition next year) and economic (they have foreseen a deficit of 75 million euros this course) could advance the facts.

PSG will not make it so easy. It will also depend on the strength that Mbappé makes, but the board is offering him a great contract for his renewal that Real Madrid cannot reach. For this reason, his signing would only be possible in two cases: the first, if the forward decides not to renew, although in this case it would be more likely to undertake the operation in 2022 and for free; the second depends on whether PSG will go after Messi for next season, since it would not be feasible to maintain three salaries of such caliber (also taking into account Neymar's). Whatever happens, Madrid will always respect the times of both the player and the club, with which they have a great relationship.

Whatever happens, Madrid is already preparing a new project and knows that everything revolves around the signing of a star. The accounts this year are not the desired ones, but an effort will be made that will start by selling some players and making room in the squad. Everything to make a galactic transfer again.
