 Haaland’s future is very interesting. Recently Squawka has assessed the potential destinations of the Norwegian striker.

Philipp Lahm: “You can’t go 1-on-1 with Haaland”

Real Madrid

Los Blancos do not have a fixed style of play, they tend to adapt according to the match, according to different opponents. At Real, Haaland will certainly be “refueled” by quality satellites. However, when Vinicius Jr and Karim Benzema are playing well, and the White Vulture wants to recruit Kylian Mbappe, the Bernabeu is not necessarily the ideal destination for Haaland.

 Mbappe and Benzema will have a good relationship at Real?

If Mbappe and Vinicius can play on both sides, Benzema’s current position of striker is very difficult to replace. The 34-year-old star is not only tasked with scoring goals, but also connecting and creating opportunities for teammates. Since the beginning of 2020, Haaland has created 50 chances in the Bundesliga, while this number of Benzema in La Liga is 145.


The system Xavi is building requires strikers to actively move and participate in pressing, but at the same time Haaland will also have more opportunities to finish. Look how brilliantly revived Aubameyang is. In addition, instead of being teammates with Mbappe, confronting the French striker, creating an era like Messi – Ronaldo used to be more interesting and motivating.

Manchester United

If he arrives at Old Trafford, Haaland will reunite with his teammate Jadon Sancho, and is supported by a superb passer like Bruno Fernandes. However, Man Utd is still struggling in creating a style of play suitable for modern football, as well as a project capable of attracting Haaland.

Man City

Haaland benefits if he joins Man City. 

The Norwegian striker joining the Etihad Stadium team will be an extremely scary prospect. Man City has money, style, owns a series of top passers like Kevin de Bruyne, Bernardo Silva, Jack Grealish … and is led by a class strategist like Pep Guardiola. Haaland wearing The Citizens shirt is like “a tiger with more wings”.


The problem of the French rich man today is that their strikers all want to be the center, to be the main character, to have the ball at their feet and dribble. This makes PSG’s play quite sporadic.

However, Haaland is not the type of striker who likes to hold a lot of balls to break through, instead ready to move to receive passes from teammates. The Norwegian striker will therefore benefit from being supported by top-class passers like Leo Messi or Neymar.
