Morientes: Haaland will use Man City as stepping stone to Real Madrid

Former Real Madrid striker Fernando Morientes is convinced Erling Haaland will eventually move to the Spanish giants.

The Borussia Dortmund striker will join Manchester City this summer after passing his medical in Belgium yesterday.

Morientes told AS: "It seems that he has it done with City, yes. Well, it will be a bridge, in a few years he will want to come to Spain.

"England is a very attractive football for all professionals, I wanted to try it myself, but the Spanish is still the most attractive and the one that every great player should know.

"Here we have probably had the two best players in history, Messi and Cristiano, and if Mbappé arrives, Haaland in the future... If something has been shown in the last decade, it is that of all the great competitions, in the end Spanish teams are always in the finals."

On PSG striker Kylian Mbappe and Real Madrid, Morientes also said: "At the moment he has already arrived in Madrid, it is getting closer! I don't know if it will be done or not, it seems like a matter of time, it gives me the feeling that it's done.

"If it is done, it will be great news for our League and for the sport. It would make this competition much more powerful. That the players choose to come to Spain is a point in favour."
