Guardiola’s response to Haaland’s signing to Real Madrid: ‘I’m leaving…’
The trajectory of Erling Haaland and Real Madrid appears to be converging, with an agreement in the near future.
Even after the transfer market has closed, rumours about Real Madrid continue to circulate.
Florentino Pérez and José ngel Sánchez are already planning for the 2024-2025 season, and their thoughts go beyond Kylian Mbappé and Erling Haaland.
Despite Haaland’s current emphasis on Manchester City, the team’s troubles and the threat of relegation have piqued the Norwegian’s curiosity, however the Norwegian has reassured his coach about his immediate future.
“Coach, I’m going to tackle all the rumours about me with a light heart… “For the time being, I just want to stay at City; we’ll see about the future later,” Erling Haaland told Pep Guardiola.
The reason for this chat is that the Catalan manager has began pressing the Scandinavian player to consider renewing his contract and deleting the €200 million release clause for the upcoming summer.
Pep Guardiola is sure that the exit clause in Erling Haaland’s contract exposes the English club to Florentino Pérez if the Norwegian chooses to utilise it.
Real Madrid’s sports leadership is now proceeding cautiously, while a prospective offer for the Leeds-born player—one of their major goals at the Santiago Bernabéu in recent times—is not ruled out.
