Real Madrid has been actively pursuing French sensation Kylian Mbappe for the past two years. The club is still on the lookout to sign the PSG star, but they seem to have increased their options. Recent reports suggest that they have also opened the possibility of signing the Norwegian striker in 2024.

Real Madrid’s priority remains Mbappe, but their interest in Erling Haaland indicates a backup plan if they fail to secure the services of the French forward. Interestingly, the Norwegian striker himself has reportedly told those closest to him that he desires to play for the Spanish giants.

During the recent Manchester City vs Tottenham match, there was a significant decision made that caused controversy. In the 5th minute of stoppage time, with the score tied at 3-3, Haaland was fouled but managed to regain his footing and pass the ball to Jack Grealish. However, referee Simon Hooper blew the whistle and stopped play, disregarding the advantage played.

This decision greatly angered the City players, who rushed towards Hooper in protest. After the match, Haaland posted a video clip of the incident on X with the caption, “WTF” expressing his frustration. Although he later deleted the tweet, it caught the attention of the FA who may take disciplinary action against him in response.
