After opting to leave Borussia Dortmund last year, Erling Haaland is said to have used a specific scoring system to select his new squad.
The Norwegian international had offers from Real Madrid and Barcelona, but he ultimately chose Manchester City, where he is currently playing for Pep Guardiola.
The Times reports that Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Barcelona were the teams that Haaland and his group gave the highest ratings to.
According to Paul Hirst of the British media, Haaland, his late agent Mino Raiola, who passed away in April 2022, and his father Alfie gave each team a score between 0 and 10 based on a variety of characteristics.
Manchester City scored a score of 10 on the need for a striker scale, whereas Real Madrid only received a 5 due to the presence of Karim Benzema.
At the end, Haaland came to the conclusion that Real Madrid, Bayern Munich, and Manchester City would be in order of preference according to his specific tests.
