The summer transfer window was one of the busiest in recent years. Lionel Messi left Barcelona, and Cristiano Ronaldo unexpectedly returned to Manchester United. But next summer it will be just as enjoyable. Then the main heroes of the transfer window will most likely be PSG forward Kilian Mbappe and Borussia Dortmund forward Erling Haaland. Everything is more or less clear with the Frenchman – he either renews the contract with the Parisians or goes to Real Madrid. But with Norwegian, everything is not so simple.

Most bookmakers now also accept bets on the Haaland’s future club. Don’t you want to make a bet on this? But first, we recommend you to read a bit on Liontips website, it will definitely help you find out more about betting world.

Manchester United

Haaland was linked to Manchester United even before he moved to Borussia. The main reason for this is United’s mentor Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, under whose leadership the footballer played at Molde. The Mancunians have some financial issues, but they always find funds to strengthen the composition. Besides, next summer, “Old Trafford” may leave at once two strikers – Anthony Martial and Edinson Cavani. Then only Cristiano Ronaldo will remain from the center-forward in Manchester United. United usually lines up with one player at the forefront of the attack. But the possible arrival of Haaland will not be a problem in this regard since the Portuguese may well play as a winger. Rumor has it that Manchester United is still interested in the Norwegian. The Mancunians will find money, and Solskjaer can become an essential element in negotiations with the player.

Real Madrid
The primary transfer goal of Real Madrid for the summer is Mbappe. But if the Frenchman remains at PSG, the creamy ones will switch to Haaland. The Spaniards have money. For two seasons, the Blancos spent only 31 million euros on midfielder Eduardo Camavinga, but at the same time, they regularly sold their players. Even the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas, admires how steadfastly the “royal club” has endured the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Karim Benzema is good right now but needs a replacement in the long run. Mariano Diaz and Luca Jovic are not the players the creamy is counting on. After the failed Eden Azar deal, the Blancos have been saving for a long time, but they have to detonate the transfer bomb next summer. At least, everything points to this.

It’s no secret that Barcelona is in a frankly wrong financial position. But due to their brand, Catalans remain attractive to private companies. According to the Spanish media, several investment funds at once offered the “blue-garnet” assistance in signing Haaland. Barcelona is weighing the risks. The Catalans want to get the Norwegian because Sergio Aguero, Martin Braithwaite, and Luc de Jong are not long-term players. But the “blue-garnet” will need to pay the player’s salary, at least 10 million euros per year.

Barcelona now has the opportunity to sign a young and high-quality striker – this is what they need. The Catalans are correct to weigh the risks, but delay in this matter can cost them dearly.
