Who’s Gonna Get Erling Haaland?

Top European Powerhouses Rubbing their Hands

Since joining Borussia Dortmund in 2019, Erling Haaland has scored 76 goals…in 75 games! Now you know why all top European powerhouses wrote letters to Santa Claus asking for the Norwegian.

Haaland will leave Dortmund at the end of the season, that’s for sure. What’s in doubt is which powerhouse will manage to sign him. Trust me, whoever wins will be in your soccer picks constantly.

Top Four Potential Destinations

Manchester City

Manchester City has been playing without a starting center striker all season long. Their roster includes Gabriel Jesus, but rumor has it that manager Pep Guardiola is preparing the team to welcome Haaland. His plan would also give Haaland a good idea of what his role in the team would be.

The Citizens are the English Premier League reigning champions. Haaland could be the last piece they need to finally win the UEFA Champions League. He could become the next Sergio Aguero, who scored 260 goals in 10 seasons with City. They should include that in their pitch.

Without Haaland, the Citizens will remain among the soccer betting favorites to win the EPL. With Haaland, they would be favorites to win it all.

Real Madrid

President Florentino Perez did everything in his power to sign Kylian Mbappe during the last transfer window. He failed. Now his plan is to sign both Mbappe and Haaland to start Los Galacticos 2.0, the new version of the team that included Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, David Beckham, Ronaldo and Raul.

Haaland could be tempted to play with Karim Benzema and Vinicius Junior. Los Blancos have been unstoppable and that tanden has had a lot to do with that. The three of them could also be the new version of the BBC (Bale, Benzema, Cristiano).

No other team has won more UCL titles than Real Madrid. History and prestige could tip the balance in their favor.

Manchester United

Did Manchester United appoint Ralf Rangnick as its interim manager in order to lure Haaland? Rangnick was involved in Haaland’s transfer from Molde to RB Salzburg. Rumor has it that he would receive a bonus of £10 million if the Red Devils do sign the Norwegian. Of course, he denies it.

Playing with Cristiano Ronaldo could lead Haaland to choose Manchester United. He could also reunite with Jadon Sancho, who played for Borussia Dortmund from 2017 to 2021.

Don’t underestimate Manchester United due to recent scores and odds. People don’t call Old Trafford the Theatre of Dreams for nothing.

PSG

PSG would become the favorite if Mbappe signs with Real Madrid. Playing with Lionel Messi and Neymar could have Haaland choosing the Parisians. They would become instant online gambling favorites to win the UCL.

The Parisians’ disadvantage is that the Ligue 1 is an inferior league to the Bundesliga. Haaland wants to leave to compete with the best.

PSG’s front office won’t rest until the team wins the UCL. They’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen. Including offering a ridiculous salary to Haaland.

Barcelona

Don’t laugh. I know Barcelona are having a terrible season, but Haaland could become their savior. Giving him the keys to the city and playing with Ansu Fati and Pedri-two of the premier young talents in the world-might be the answer.

Speaking of young talents, manager Xavi Hernandez is leading a revolution in Barcelona. He recently said that he would love to start more players from Barcelona’s youth academy, but regulations don’t allow it. Let’s not forget that Haaland is only 21 years old.

Leading Barcelona back to the top would be a great challenge for the Norwegian, don’t you think? Also, Sergio Aguero recently retired, meaning Barcelona really needs a new center striker.
