NEWS: Man City ace Haaland’s agents pushing for Real Madrid move


Agents for Erling Haaland feel it’s time for him to leave Manchester City.

The Sun says Haaland’s representatives are keen to secure a move to Real Madrid for the Norway striker this summer.

It\’s suggested the player’s management team believe only by playing for Real Madrid will Haaland gain the recognition his goalscoring numbers deserve.

This season, Haaland has played 22 matches for City in all competitions, scored 19 goals and provided 5 assists.

The 23 year-old is viewed at Real as an alternative to No1 striker target Kylian Mbappe of PSG.

Manchester City striker Erling Haaland has openly admitted his delight at life at the Etihad Stadium following a hugely successful first season with the club.

The latest comments from the Norway international come at a time when the 23-year-old striker is returning to full match sharpness having recovered from a bone stress problem in his foot that ruled him out of action for the club for two months.

Simultaneously, comments stressing his delight at life with the reigning Premier League champions coincide with staggering claims from Spanish media suggesting unhappiness from Haaland with the climate in Manchester.

Manager Pep Guardiola was keen to dismiss such claims during a recent press conference, joking that perhaps Spanish media, particularly those based in Madrid, have more information than himself and Manchester City as a club.

Speaking at length to Manchester City’s official club podcast, Erling Haaland has reflected on a dream first season at the Etihad Stadium, highlighting his delight at the ‘vibes’ at the club’s City Football Academy training centre in particular.

“My first weeks and months, I wanted to get settled in the team as quickly as possible,” Haaland said. “To get to know people, get to know the whole club and how they play and how they do things.”

Discussing his overall ambitions upon first joining the club, Haaland continued, “In the big picture it was to win the Champions League. That’s what I said when I came here, that was the goal. From the first day I came here, I enjoyed it.Haaland is understood to be training and playing without any pain in his foot and is likely to play a huge part in the second-half of the season should he remain fit, and despite the impressive form of Julian Alvarez across the forward line so far this campaign.
