The president of real Madrid, Florentino Perez declared, in El Chiringuito de Jugones, the reason why they did not sign Erling Braut Haaland in this summer transfer market when asked by Josep Pedrerol.

“We have the best striker in the world (Karim Benzema). We are not going to bring Erling Haaland to sit on the bench, are we? We are focused on forming the team for next season. I think we will have a great team with the young signings that we are making.”

Florentino explains the reason why Real Madrid did not sign Haaland

The Norwegian striker ended up signing for Manchester City in this summer transfer market. The merengue team was in the bidding for a long time, but did not materialize the signing of one of the young stars of the moment in Europe.

On the other hand, Florentino Pérez confirmed that he does not know if Haaland has an exit clause at Manchester City like he had at Borussia Dortmund. “I don’t know if Erling Haaland has a release clause in his contract with Man City. I’ve seen some stories about it but I don’t have anything confirmed,” he said.
