The Bundesliga is back in the eagerness of all. Striker Braut Erling Haaland himself is also very excited, even forgetting the connection with the giant Real Madrid.
Haaland ignored Real Madrid
After a long period of paralysis for Covid-19, the Bundesliga finally returned last weekend, May 16 and 17. It is the first and only tournament in Europe’s top five leagues (England, France, Germany, Spain, and Italy) back to the Covid-19 epidemic.
Playing football again brings inspiration to young star Braut Erling Haaland. The Dortmund striker stated that he was only interested in the matches, not distracted by rumors about his future.
In an interview with Sky Sports on May 13, Haaland said: “I am fully focused on the match, not interested in the attention outside the pitch. I only think about my own things to do in every game, that’s what I really enjoy and that’s it.”
Thus, Braut Erling Haaland as if ignoring information about his connection with the big man Real Madrid. Earlier, there were reports that the Spanish Royal team was trying to bring Haaland back to the Bernabeu in the summer of this year.
Before that, because Real Madrid had just lost the service of Eden Hazard at least from now until the end of April. Injury of the Belgian midfielder’s ankle fracture was considered very serious, at risk of being sidelined The pitch is longer than expected. According to Transfermarkt, Hazard has suffered 4 injuries in the 2019-2020 season, leaving this player not much to show in the white vulture.
Broadly speaking, the contribution of the Real Madrid attack this season is quite modest. Their strikers have only scored 18 out of 46 separate goals in La Liga. With 13 existing goals, Kazim Benzema is acting “unilaterally” on the line, and Gareth Bale’s mind no longer seems to be at Real Madrid.
The ambition of “White Vulture”
Marca newspaper said, initially the Real Madrid football federation was full of hope, after learning that the terms of Haaland’s January contract with Dortmund had a release fee of only €70 million. However, to activate that clause, Real as well as any other partner must also wait until the summer of 2022 – that is, two more seasons.
Until then, Real Madrid will have to compete with a series of other giants and is not sure to have owned this talented young striker. And now, to have the brightest player in the Dortmund team, President Florentino Perez must spend hundreds of millions of euros. In the context of Real Madrid’s financial background is difficult due to the Covid-19 pandemic, no one is sure this team is ready.
However, from the reality of the 2019/20 season, Real Madrid is eager to own strikers capable of contributing 40 goals per season like Braut Erling Haaland. Since Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure, the “White Vulture” has been missing a frontline in the public attack, who has been firing 40 times a season on a regular basis during his nine years with Real Madrid.
Although this is considered a good season for Karim Benzema, the French striker has only 19 goals in 36 matches in all competitions. Due to the lack of a great striker, Real played poorly in both La Liga, the Copa del Rey, and the Champions League, and faced the prospect of nothing. Therefore, Braut Erling Haaland is a great hope to restore status to Real Madrid.
