The agent of Manchester City star Erling Haaland says the Norwegian’s move to Real Madrid ‘will happen’ but the striker is the ‘master of his own destiny’.

Haaland opted for City over Madrid in 2021, when City triggered a £51m release clause in the striker’s Dortmund contract.

The forward has hit 69 goals in 71 games for City, and was instrumental in their Treble success last term.

However, he has long been linked with a move to the Bernabeu and Madrid are on the lookout for a new centre forward following Karim Benzema’s departure.

And Rafaela Pimenta, who represents Haaland, says the striker will eventually move to the Spanish capital – though when that time is is entirely down to him.

‘Erling is the master of own destiny, always,’ said Pimenta.

‘He will always do what’s good for him and for Man City.

‘When they all are open to make a change, it will happen. Erling will always be respectful.’

Haaland had a £150m release clause in his contract, which was due to come into play in 2024.

However, that clause is said to have been removed following Pep Guardiola’s contract extension.

Haaland’s time at the club is linked to Guardiola’s, and he’s likely to remain as long as the Spaniard does.
