Opinion: Why Erling Haaland won’t choose PSG over Real Madrid


In football, Erling Haaland is already a household name. He scores goals anytime he wants, and it seems like he's growing better at an astounding rate year after year, month after month, game after game. The Norwegian striker has aroused the interest of big teams such as Real Madrid, PSG, and others as a result of this.

In 2022, Real Madrid will have a hectic summer. They intend to sign several superstars in order to make the transition from the old guard to the new boys as easy as possible. Obviously, Kylian Mbappe, who hopes to play for Real Madrid, is the most significant and likely possibility.

Due to PSG's inability to even respond to Real's offer, they were unable to make it happen this season. Mbappe will almost probably join Los Blancos as a free agent next summer as a result of this. Apart from him, the team requires a midfielder due to the aging of Toni Kroos and Luka Modric. They also need a center-back due to a significant lack of quality in that position compared to the rest of the group.

Of course, we can't expect Real Madrid to recruit every single player and strengthen every single position in a single summer, but if any club can do it, it's them. As a result, Haaland is an option as well.

Karim Benzema is 33 years old and not likely to live much longer. For the time being, securing Kylian Mbappe and Haaland would solve the team's assault.

The alleged clause in Haaland will take effect in 2022. Haaland's services will be sought by a number of clubs, the most of which will be Real Madrid and PSG. So, what motivates Haaland to choose Real Madrid over PSG?

Over the summer, Haaland will have witnessed the events around Mbappe and PSG. PSG has put together an incredible team, and if they play their cards well, no team in the world will be able to stop them from winning the Champions League.

However, with so many egos in the group, it's tough for both the players and the manager to play the cards appropriately. Furthermore, given how PSG handled Mbappe's case this season, it's not unreasonable to assume that Haaland would not want to play for a club that doesn't let its players leave easily, if at all.

Mbappe made it clear that he wanted to leave PSG in a polite manner this season rather than last because he wanted to maintain his pledge to PSG that he would only leave for a transfer money. What was PSG's response? PSG, as well as all of Real Madrid's proposals, declined his request, and the deadline passed.

Assume Haaland signs with PSG, but decides to depart after a few years. Is he capable of pulling it off? Other clubs, such as Real Madrid, are not like PSG. Perez has indicated on multiple occasions that he will not hold a player hostage if he decides to go, and no one is exempt. Raphael Varane left to try something different. Allowing him to leave during the same summer that Real Madrid lost Sergio Ramos shows a lot about the club's working methods.

PSG is set to offer Haaland a more lucrative contract than Real Madrid, but the Norwegian knows that money isn't everything.

La Liga is a far more competitive league than Ligue 1.

People can argue all they want about how the quality of La Liga has deteriorated since Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi left. That is right; they are two of the greatest players in history, and losing them would be a loss of quality. It did, however, make the league more competitive. For the first time, Sevilla was on the verge of breaking into the top three. They were in contention for La Liga until the final weeks of the season. They are undeniably adequate, and they show that teams are progressing.

On paper, Atletico are in better shape than they have ever been.

Barcelona is struggling right now, but they do have a few really good players who have yet to realize their full potential. When that happens, and the financial situation improves a little, Barcelona may be able to return to the top. For the time being, Real Madrid appears to be in fine form, but there are apparent weaknesses that must be rectified. Add in a boatload of Champions League matches to the mix, and you've got yourself a tremendously competitive season.

In Ligue 1, there is only one team: PSG. Lille may have won it out of nowhere last season, but I'm very confident they won't be able to defend their crown against this kind of attack this season.

Only the Champions League remains. Would Haaland be willing to be put to the test in only 10 to 12 games per season? Given his age and mental state, I seriously doubt it. Haaland is a fierce competitor, and I'm curious if he'll be playing in Ligue 1 next season.

Real Madrid's Vinicius Junior For Haaland, the tactical aspect of La Liga will make things more tough and intriguing.

As previously said, Erling Haaland is a hard competitor. He enjoys overcoming obstacles and is continuously looking for new ways to do it.

That's presumably why he prefers this one to the others.

As a result, I believe Haaland is performing admirably in the Bundesliga. It's not simple to score so many goals in such a short amount of time. However, it indicates something about Bundesliga teams' defensive methods.

To be fair to the Bundesliga's defense, there appears to be a lot of room for attackers and midfielders to operate, which leads to more goals. It may be stated that Ligue 1 is in the same situation.

Defenders leave a lot of time and space, which makes scoring goals a little simpler.

The scenario in La Liga, on the other hand, is considerably different. It's actually one of the most underestimated parts of the league. When facing superior opposition, Spain's teams defend deep, pushing opponents to think outside the box and fight hard for the goals they score. Haaland hasn't played in that lineup previously, so it'll be fascinating to see how he does.

I'm sure he'd still score a lot of goals in this league, but it'll be interesting to see how he adjusts to the league's defenses and lack of space.

His competitive mentality would surely cause him to think about how he could change his game to be as effective in Spain as he was in Germany. I think he'll like the challenge and be willing to put in the effort.
