Haaland is an option

first_imgOne of the reasons why Haaland chose to go to Borussia Dortmund instead of a team with more cache it’s because there they allowed him to sign a 75 million euro release clause. Is clause is not launched this summer, but in the next opening of the window of signings, the winter of 2021. This would enable his arrival in Madrid for a more than reasonable price when it has been seen if his contribution remains so spectacular for the goal. In comparison, Madrid paid 60 million for Jovic, 45 for Vinicius and 40 for Rodrygo.Haaland would fit into the policy of young signings of Madrid and also in its future strategy, which is none other than undertake the signing of Mbappé in the summer of 2021, when he only has one year left on his contract and can come at a reasonable price. Make a prior investment by Haaland of 75 million would not abort the plans that the white entity has with the French star. The Norwegian striker is an option, and more so if they come badly given this season. Now that the debate about lack of goal a name rings again for him Real Madrid from the future, the young Norwegian striker Haaland (19 years old), what is dazzling since he arrived in Borussia, with which you have already marked 12 goals in his first eight games. That Madrid is having a goal problem is something already evident. In 2020, the team’s pichichi is Isco, with three goals. The hiring of Jovic, the big bet of the summer, has not worked. They are only two goals this season. Now, with the tie of eighth against City so uphill, a defeat in the Classic could trigger a series of movements that would re-activate the Transfer market in Madrid. Haaland is the great attraction of the market by price and youth. Borussia made a total investment of 60 million by the forward 1.94 meters high. They were 20 million transfer to Salzburg, three commission for Mino Raiola and a salary of 36 million euros for the 4.5 years of contractor that you have been signed (eight million gross per season). Some numbers that are far behind the contribution he is having in the Bundesliga.last_img read more
