Champions League Real Madrid

Real Madrid keen to sign teenage sensation Erling Haaland

The teenage sensation Erling Haaland has now sparked talk of interest from the Spanish giants Real Madrid.

According to AS, the 6 foot 4 Norwegian scoring machine is on Zidane's radar after scoring 18 goals in 11 matches for Red Bull Salzburg.

It was only a few weeks ago after netting a first-half hat-trick on his Champions League debut that Haaland gained the attention of Manchester United. The Norwegian played under Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar at Molde in 2017.

“The media attention is huge,” said Haaland. “It's good pressure. The club is good at shielding me a little, but I hope it will be more shielding in the future. It will be difficult, but we will try. I want to be shielded.”

When asked about the transfer speculation to Old Trafford, Haaland quipped: “It's f*cking boring. I'm bored now. How bored on a scale of 1 to 10? 9.9.”

Haaland's father, former Leeds and Manchester City midfielder Alf-Inge Håland, was famously injured by Solskjaer’s old teammate Roy Keane. Erling tied his father's scoring record at Anfield in RB Salzburg's 4-3 loss in the Champions League group stage to Liverpool.

Where will the Norwegian striker end up?

Real Madrid are looking for further reinforcements to add to an already dynamite attack in the final third. The club also sees Haaland as a long-term replacement for 31-year-old Karim Benzema.

But Manchester United and Real Madrid aren't the only ones with their sights set on the teenager. Napoli and their Serie A rivals Juventus have also entered the transfer race.

The bidding wars for the Norwegian are just beginning to take shape.
