Who will be a better signing for Real Madrid: Erling Halaand or Kylian Mbappe?

The prospect of both Erling Haaland and Kylian Mbappe joining Real Madrid and playing in the same team is nothing short of a tantalizing football fantasy.

The idea of uniting these two stars in one squad, sounds too good to be true, considering their monumental price tags and colossal wage demands.

Reports suggest a possible move for Mbappe to Carlo Ancelotti‘s side this summer, marking a potential shift from his previous stance at PSG, where his contract is set to expire in June.

Meanwhile, the Haaland saga continues. Despite his contract with Manchester City until 2027, there’s an undercurrent of potential movement, given his agent’s inclinations toward future transfers.

The release clause for foreign clubs appears more reasonable, hinting at a possible shift for around €100 million, a tempting prospect for clubs like Real Madrid.

At Real, Vinicius Junior holds a pivotal role, and Mbappe’s ideal position somewhat intersects with the Brazilian’s.

However, Ancelotti is exploring tactical avenues to accommodate both, though competing for the same spot seems inevitable.

Mbappe as a No.9 might pose challenges but stands as an upgrade, particularly compared to Joselu, warranting the need for a towering, central striker—a role Haaland embodies seamlessly.

However, the debate between Haaland and Mbappe stretches beyond talent; it goes far more into commercial value, where Mbappe’s superiority could sway the scale, accentuating the marketing appeal over Haaland.

This dynamic amplifies with the addition of Endrick from Palmeiras, set to join Real as soon as he turns 18.

Who has the bigger price tag?

In terms of valuation, Haaland, two years younger than Mbappe, emerges asthe more expensive of the two. His recent exploits have elevated his worth to approximately £216 million, representing one of the most expensive players globally.
