Foot – Mercato – Real Madrid
Posted on Oct 12th, 2020 @ 1:30 pm by AM
Always determined to recruit Erling Braut Haaland by 2022 at the latest, Real Madrid put every chance on their side, relying in particular on the relationship the Borussia Dortmund striker has with a certain Martin Odegaard, his team-mate, in the Norwegian selection .
Real Madrid’s ambitions in terms of recruiting seem clear. Although Madrid’s plans have been mixed up a bit by the Covid-19 crisis, everything still seems to have stalled. And for good reason, the merengue club made significant savings in the transfer market this summer by not recruiting a player and leaving several players. In this way, Zinedine Zidane eventually managed to part with Gareth Bale, who was on loan at Tottenham, and James Rodriguez, who signed up for Everton. Real Madrid are thus saving a lot by reducing their wages thanks to the departures of the two unwanted bulky French technicians. And not because Achraf Hakimi (Inter Milan), Sergi Reguilon (Tottenham) and Oscar Rodriguez (Sevilla FC) were sold at the same time for a total of around 85 million euros. In other words, the Madrid club has put money aside to better invest in the next Mercatos.
Odegaard, the key to Haaland?
And Real Madrid’s first goal is known as Kylian Mbappé could be the subject of an offer from next summer. But that’s not all. Indeed, the merengue club also has medium-term ambitions and continues to closely monitor the situation of Erling Braut Haaland, who has been impressive with his four goals since the beginning of the season. AS therefore reminds this Monday that the Borussia Dortmund striker is still a Real Madrid goal for 2022 or even a little earlier. And for this, the Madrilenians could rely on a new good, namely Martin Odegaard. The young playmaker, who returned from his loan to Real Sociedad this summer, is the only summer backup for Zinedine Zidane but could help Real Madrid in a very different way. Indeed, Martin Odegaard and Erling Braut Haaland top the Norwegian selection. This is shown by the hat-trick that the second achieved thanks to two assists against Romania (4-0) on the first Sunday evening. Above all, the two young players have an excellent relationship off the field, as can be seen in the photo that Haaland posted next to Odegaard on his Instagram account. And Real Madrid would like to use this friendly, but also technical relationship as an additional advantage to convince the Borussia Dortmund striker to land. In the meantime, the Madrilenians can still follow Norway’s meetings to make the Odegaard-Haaland duo shine. Before we maybe see her wearing the same shirt again, this time in a club.
