Of course in football people can easily overcome this stuff, but the way the entire PSG squad (except Cavani) mocked and personally targeted Haaland after their UCL clash (Neymar was the one leading this) two seasons ago must still stink for him. Among the sporting reason and what you mentioned, I can’t imagine he would choose them for this personal reason as well

I remember this too. There is the small matter of Mino, who I have had previous dealings with through Balotelli and my bother.

This guy does not miss a trick and my only 'slight' concern is what he will have undoubtedly said to Paris when setting up the Donnarumma deal.

Other than that, I don't see too many genuine rivals for his signature.

With another year of a financial downturn and inflation knocking on the door, I put City in a circle of four along with Madrid (simply because it's them), United (trying their luck having removed Pogba and Cavani from their wage bill/irrespective of why Haaland would want to share space with fake Ronaldo), and Paris, just to try and fill the void of Mbappe.

It’s not unthinkable but I’d bet money he doesn’t end up there. It’s too early for him to go to the cemetery of football. It makes more sense that Lewandowski goes there, for instance.

A psychologist could explain how our fans are so quick to think he would go anywhere but here, though... lol
I think there is a real chance he could go to Madrid though...still think Raiola and City don't deal with each other.
In Manchester, Rags are happy to give Raiola whatever he wants, not City. Therefore me thinks Madrid has a good shout. Sooner or later they will have to replace Benzema.
I want Haaland in our team, don't get me wrong but it's not a clear path Imho.

No way to talk about your brother.

I think Puma are going to be a major part of where he goes next since they want him as their poster boy. The numbers they are offering is 50 mill over a 4 year contract. Also didn’t know this but Puma helped orchestrate his move to Dortmund.

“Haaland's fellow countryman, Bjorn Gulden, just so happens to be the CEO of PUMA, and he was a key figure in helping to orchestrate the move to Dortmund. As part of the negotiations between the club and player”

This is precisely why I am pretty confident: looking at these alternatives. I maintain Madrid isn’t really going to be interested in him, no matter what is said. Their front three for next season is Vinicius Jr, Benzema and Mbappe. I was nearly the lone voice here pushing this last week, then we had that France vs Spain in the weekend, showing that Mbappe and Benzema chemistry that Madrid will not throw away for nothing (They probably think Haaland is a possible Benzema replacement in a few years) and the Pedrerol news that he said came straight from Florentino just proved my initial hunch last week is onto something. We will see and I will be ready to eat my words if I’m wrong, but I maintain that

You don’t think Bayern will be in the running to sign him?

Saw a tweet saying that BVB will inform PSG and Man City in January that if a bid of €130 million is made, they will seriously consider selling in the winter window. (take that with a pinch of salt ofc)
If that turns out to the case, that should play into our hands should we be ready to pay that amount because Mbappe won't be leaving until the summer which means PSG will have no reason to sign Haaland in Jan.

I think that if buying him in January means there'll be no competition from Real/PSG unlike the summer, then paying the extra 55 million (over his release clause of 75) will be totally worth it.
