Any team especially at the level of Real Madrid would want to sign both Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland. However, Zinedine Zidane may only be able to sign one at best, so who should it be, Haaland or Mbappe? Here is what Real Madrid legend Jorge Valdano has to say.
According to Jorge Valdano, Real Madrid should make signing Erling Haaland a bigger priority over Kylian Mbappe, arguing that the Borussia Dortmund star is the better goalscorer out of the pair.
The Dortmund and PSG forwards are two of the most exciting young footballers in the world right now, enjoying tremendous success in their short careers so far, with Kylian Mbappe already a World Cup and four-time Ligue 1 champion. On the other hand, Haaland has left a red-hot trail over the past year upon smashing home the goals at an almost never-ending rate.
Thus, for a big club like Real Madrid, who pride themselves on owning the biggest talents [Galacticos], it’s no surprise to hear of their interest. But the dilemma now for the galactico boss is the decision of choosing Haaland or Mbappe for his La Liga side.
Meanwhile, the COVID-19 pandemic has hit the Spanish giants hard financially, just like any other club. Hence, if they are to chase a superstar signing in the summer, only one of the two young forwards could arrive in the Spanish capital. So, who should be the priority? Haaland or Mbappe?
Jorge Valdano Chooses From Haaland Or Mbappe For Zidane
“I would sign Haaland before Mbappe,” former Real Madrid forward and manager Jorge Valdano told Onda Cero.
“He moves in small and large spaces, he scores with great regularity.
“I understand that Mbappe is a star, but I’m very impressed with Haaland. He scores goals of all types.”
So that’s it, in Valdano’s opinion, Erling Haaland should be Real Madrid’s priority signing. Who will you choose over the other, if asked to? Haaland or Mbappe? Feel free to share your opinion with us via our comments section below!
