Transfer saga: Why Kylian Mbappe, Erling Haaland didn’t sign for Real Madrid

Bad architecture is ultimately as much a failure of psychology as that of design because it is an expression via materials of the same tendencies that lead us to choose the incorrect airline and schedule unsuccessful vacations in other contexts. Real Madrid was confronted with a difficult decision when they had to select between the two best young footballers of recent times, but they ultimately grab neither.

When Real Madrid president Florentino Perez wished for something, it was granted but not in this case. On this occasion, Kylian Mbappe is currently playing for Paris Saint-Germain and Erling Braut Haaland has shaken the world with his prolific goal-scoring form for Manchester City with Real Madrid struggling through Karim Benzema’s injury.

The mishandled Real Madrid transfer saga involving Kylian Mbappe, and Erling Haaland should be discussed in depth.

Real Madrid was ambitious and unlucky in Mbappe’s case

Mbappe has always had a strong desire to play for Real Madrid in order to fulfill his childhood dream, and the club practically offered him the opportunity to do so. However, it was only nearly complete.

Real Madrid attempted to capture the France superstar during the winter transfer window of 2021, offering $200 million to PSG as a transfer fee. However, the hierarchy of Paris Saint-Germain rejected the offer.

Mbappe’s contract expired last summer, and Real Madrid was patient enough to complete the deal as a prospective free agent. However, PSG and Mbappe inked a new contract, shattering Real Madrid’s hopes, thanks to France President Emmanuel Macron’s influence.

Perez, the mafia guy, was stunned into silence when he tasted the rejection out of the blue. He was enraged after the occurrence and told to the reporters, “Macron called Mbappé, it makes no sense. PSG offered him to be the leader of the project, it changed everything. I didn’t see same Kylian Mbappé that we wanted”.

Whatever Perez said, Mbappe and PSG did not bother much as the former World Cup champion is licking the luxuries PSG is offering him. As it turned out, Mbappe controls the laws and authorities at PSG, whereas Real Madrid went begging.

Haaland was underestimated

In search of a diamond, Real Madrid lost a real gold in Erling Haaland as the Norwegian Viking is arguably the best forward on the planet right and the way he is approaching, it won’t be taking too long to get the hands in the Ballon D’or for the 22 years Man City striker.

Haaland is playing under the best manager in the world, Pep Guardiola while has 21 goals and 3 assists already in the Premier League and we have not even reached the middle of January. Ridiculous number!

Real Madrid always prioritized Mbappe over Haaland and in the end they felt betrayed when shifting attention towards the realistic one, they were too late as the Viking was signed by Manchester City.

When asked about the situation, Perez said, “Mbappé deal didn’t create any problem with the Haaland deal, absolutely. We have Benzema, so it was impossible to have him with Karim. We can’t sign Haaland to stay on the bench. Haaland is an amazing, fantastic player.”

Haaland is truly the best youngster in the world right now, he is a machine, and he is the danger. But much to the dismay of Madrid, they are unable to secure the weapon; instead, Man City has the ammunition in their possession.

In the end, Florentino Perez has nothing but misery waiting for his club because he failed to recognize the genuine qualities and abilities of both players. Comment your opinion regarding the veteran’s error in judgment, and we’ll get in touch with you.
