Growing Sense of 'Defeatism' at Real Madrid Hands Manchester City Major Boost in Erling Haaland Pursuit

Real Madrid are growing a sense of 'pessimism' and 'defeatism' in their efforts to sign Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund this summer amid interest from Manchester City in the striker, according to a report from Spain.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with a sensational switch for Erling Haaland despite interest from Real Madrid and Barcelona when his £63 million release clause gets activated in the summer.

It was revealed on Thursday last week that the 21-year-old was set to make a decision about whether he would play next season within the ten days to follow 

However, tit was claimed recently that the Norwegian’s much-awaited call on his future excludes Barcelona - with Manchester City and Real Madrid said to be leading the charge for the forward's signature.
