Erling Haaland has joind Borussia Dortmund in this winter transfer market from Red Bull Salzburg, winning the race over Juventus, Manchester United and RB Leipzig.
E. Haaland has had a sensational season at RB Salzburg, being able to play in the Champions League even scoring 8 goals in 6 CHL appearances.
In his 2018/19 season at Salzburg he was able to score 16 goals in 14 matches, considering the fact he was just 18years old, made the big clubs go after him. But with a manager like Mino Rialoa the player reach a mid team like Borussia Dortmund. With the fear of being substituted at the big clubs, the player decided to extend his careen at a mid range club before going on a big club like Real Madrid, Man. United, Juventus, etc. There are many examples of players who failed to succeed after having a wonderful season at small teams and then who transferred to a big team. Examples like: Ousmane Dembele who went to Barcelona from Dortmund at a very young age (20yrs) and not being able to show his full potential due to many injuries he experienced. He has scored only 13 times in his 51 appearance for the blaugrana. A pity statistic for such a talented player Dembele was. His best season was the 2018/19 season, when Fc Barcelona won the La Liga trophy, he was able to play 29 matches, scoring 8 goals and providing one assist. This also was the season with lesser injuries for him. In the current season he has played only 5 matches, he was injured for quite a time with his due tu return date in January, but he was injured AGAIN in the second training session. However he is now 23yrs and would still be able to show his full potential, most likely in a different team. Another example is Alexander Isak, such a promising talent who was departed to Real Sociedad and not being able to show his full talent.
Borussia Durtmund has alway been a target for big teams for seeking their players. Keep in mind Bayern Munchen took Robert Lewandowski, Mats Hummels, Mario Goetze, there, Christian Pulisic to CF Chelsea, Gundogan, Mikhytaryan, Januzaj, etc.
Most targeted players at B.V.B for now are: Erling Haaland, Jaden Sancho, Thorgan Hazard, Julian Brandt, Achraf Hakim & Alex Witsel.
Dortmund most likely will lose another high quality player, Achraf Hakimi, at the end of the season, who is in a two year loan deal from Real Madrid who are desperate for a Carvajal substitute.
Carvajal is currently 28years old and since his arrival at Los Blancos he has been irreplaceable, he was the main reason Hakimi had to move to Dortmund.
But with the experience Hakimi gained at B.V.B it would be a tough race between these two for the starting position. Hakimi’s ability to offence may be a advantage against his right back opponent, Dani Carvajal.
B.V.B’s manager, Lucien Favre, has declared that he will be happy if Haaland and Sancho will stay for another season but he is aware that such players have big dreams achieving with big clubs. Jaden Sancho has been linked with a Man. United move, although nothing official right now. He with no doubt would succeed at Manchester and would with no doubt secure a position in the starting XI.
BVB paid only $20m for his services. Haaland had a sensational start of his new adventure in Bundeslinga scoring 8 goals in 4 matches.
This phenomenal start made Real Madrid show an interest in the 19 year old Norwegian.
With Karim Benzema who is 32 years old, Erlind Haaland is the perfect substitute for him.
Karim has netted 14 goals in his 27 appearances, not a good stat considering he is playing for Real Madrid. Madrid’s attack needs a refreshment so Haalnd would be the best choice.
Even though Benzema’s replacement would be hard considering Zidane has strong connections with him.
KB is showing terrible stats for now, he has scored only 5 goals in his last 20 matches, and yet he is irreplaceable in Zidane’s XI.
Los Blancos are ready to pay his release clause of $75m in the summer transfer window. But it will be hard for BVB’s management to let him go with only half of a season played.
Borussia’s sport directors will make their best to keep him longer but at the end of the day it’s gonna be the player’s desire to chose his future.
With the possible signing of Haaland and perhaps Kylian Mbappe, Real Madrid would be the toughest team to beat in all the world.
Due to the good communication Real Madrid have with Haaland’s manager, Mino Raiola, this transfer seems very possible. Erlind knows if he wants to achieve the most as a football player he has to play for a big team like Real Madrid.
The restarting of the 2019/20 season was not quite positive for the Norwegian, Erlind Haaland, as he has been able to score only two goals in 5 appearances, missing two matches due to an injury.
He came after the injury and played the last thirty minutes against Dusseldorf, securing them three points with a winning header in the 95th minute, then a game after that failing to score against Mainz, which they lost with a result of 0-2.
Due to this result against Mainz, they are out of the title race, because of that Bayern Munich is now ten points ahead, securing the 8th consecutive title.
Bayern secured the title in its last match against Werder Bremen, in a tough game, with a winning a goal by Robert Lewandowski in 43rd minute.
In the other hand, Werder Bremen with this loss reduce the chances to be in Bundesliga in the next year, because they are now in second lowest in the table, and with two matches remain it will be very difficult for them ,their only chance is to provide the play off, in case they win both remaining matches, and Dusseldorf lose or equal one of them. Considering the fact that they are in a direct race for play off with Dusseldorf with just one pointless.
