Does the deal happen?

According to Spanish press reports, Erling Haaland, a Borussia Dortmund player, has a strong desire to join Real Madrid, but two obstacles emerge to complete this historic deal.

Haaland joined Dortmund in January from Salzburg for €20 million and has achieved legendary figures during a few matches at Signal Iduna Park before the activity was suspended due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Zinedine Zidane, the coach of the Royal Club, still aspires to sign an outspoken striker after Luka Jović and Mariano Diaz failed to convince him of their abilities, as well as Karim Benzema's age.

Haaland is the ideal choice, and according to Spanish press reports, the desire of the two parties to make this transition, but the first two crises are Dortmund's adherence to the services of its first star.

It is assumed that the solution to this crisis lies in the privileged relationship between Florentino Pérez, the President of Real Madrid, and Hans-Joachim Watzke, the President of the German club, which crystallized in the loan of Ashraf Hakimi for two seasons and many deals over the past decade.

If the Royal team wants to win the Norwegian international next summer, they should agree with Borussia Dortmund's management on the amount of the deal, as the penalty clause of 75 million euros will be imposed starting next winter, according to Mino Raiola, the player's agent.

The second point is that the 19-year-old wants to secure his place at the Santiago Bernabéu, he will not accept being locked in a substitute or a second option at Zizou, in which case he prefers to continue at Dortmund until 2022.

The future of the summer transfer market, in general, is still unknown, as all European leagues have been postponed and will likely resume in the summer, which will have a major impact on the progress of the transfer process in terms of date and payments as well.
