    The post was about Sterling, not Haaland

    As confirmed by Ornstein he is effectively on loan at Emirates Marketing Project and real madrid will simply take him when benzema leaves in 2-3 years. Been reported in Spain that haaland has a clause in city contract that real madrid can buy him at any moment for a set fee again below market value of €100m.

    Haaland has only ever wanted real madrid and vice versa but benzema’s surprise form along with mbappe’s desire to play with him and also the emergence of rodrygo (lets not forget vini junior too) means real madrid and haaland have agreed it would be best for him spend 2-3 years at city before he joins real madrid.

    City have agreed all this as otherwise he wouldn’t sign for them.

    Where did Ornstein confirm that part of the deal/contract?

    The €100m has come from reports in Spain but personally I think it is too high and real madrid more likely will just have to pay what Emirates Marketing Project paid bvb as this is just a glorified loan deal.

    Also I cant see benzema playing until he is 37 so that means haaland spends two years at Emirates Marketing Project and then he joins real madrid as the heir to benzema, with an already fully integrated killian mbappe.

    So Ornstein hasn’t confirmed it and it’s just wild speculation on your part bizarrely dressed up as gospel, good to know, thanks for clarifying.

    Yeah, not believing any of that then.

    If it's from one of Madrid's own papers then probably just a piece to save face.

    Would be funny if true mind.

    o_O Like Ornstein would know!!

    Reporting in Spain is about as reliable as reporting in Italy when it comes to football. The press there like to make out that their clubs are the most important ones in the World. The reality of the situation is that Haaland has chosen Emirates Marketing Project over the big boys in Spain.

    Yep.... That's right. I can remember @AjaxDeSuperYids talking matter of factly last summer about how Haaland was going to Madrid this summer... Guessing it was based on a particular realistic dream he had one night ;)

    Real Madrid and Haaland have together chosen Emirates Marketing Project for him to spend the next 2-3 years. You do not choose a peasant club like Emirates Marketing Project over Real Madrid, certainly not someone like Haaland who has had one dream since his earliest days which is to play for Real Madrid.

    He was going to join Real Madrid this summer when I said last year but the surprise form of Benzema and emergence of Rodrygo has changed all that. With the arrival of Mbappe too it was felt between all parties that Haaland arriving at the same time would be wrong. It suits all parties that Haaland goes somewhere else for 2-3 years, continue his progression and then join when Benzema leaves at 36 or 37 years of age.

    Real Madrid and Haaland then had to find a club which would be a step up from bvb to continue his development but also one willing to only have him for 2-3 years before he signs to Real Madrid and Emirates Marketing Project were prepared to do this over not having him at all.

    Its fine if no one believes this, that is your right but you will see I was correct when Benzema leaves in 2-3 years and Haaland then joins Real Madrid with little fuss. The only way this does not happen is if Haaland regresses in that time, gets a massive injury or if he decides he wants to stay at that peasant club. All three of those outcomes are extremely unlikely.

    I genuinely worry about the cognitive dissonance going on here fellow poster - But at least you’ve admitted you were wrong on Haaland’s summer move to Madrid in a roundabout kind of way, well done on owning your mistaken prediction! Hope you didn’t lay everything you had on the move given how certain you were about it.

    Few players at Leeds that could be useful.
    The Keeper for one, personally think he would take Hugo’s place within a season.

    I rate him, Philips, Harrison and if he can stay fit Bamford would be a back up option
    Rafinha can be class too

    Wary of Leeds players, did they just look better because the team was functioning well as a unit under Biesla?

    I think some did
    Some are just poor players
    Harrison done the left covers a hell do another of ground, can create and score as well as do good defensive work

    The keeper has looked good but then he has to make a lot of saves

    Philips looked great in the championship TBF even before Bielsa

    Bamford is a finisher and scored goals in the prem

    Rafinha is the interesting one. Potentially a great player who scores and creates but also strikes me as a being a bit flaky and inconsistent which would be a huge worry for the fee they would want

    I’d argue the Bielsa system actually hurt some of these players

    I may be in a minority but i have never got the hype about Leeds ( since they got back in the Prem) and especially Bielsa.

    It was super hung ho
    But tactically naive and stupid
    Doesn’t make players poor but can mean some excel who maybe aren’t that good
