Spanish media reported that Norwegian striker “cannot stand” the city and bad weather in England and would be interested in moving to Real Madrid. Haaland transferred from Borussia Dortmund to City in 2022 and scored 36 goals in the Premier League in his first season, winning the title. “You have to ask the Madrid media if he is unhappy.
They might have more information than me. We don’t have the impression that he is dissatisfied. He was because he could not play, he was injured for two months, but maybe the Spanish media, especially Madrid’s, have more information than us,” said Guardiola, as reported by BBC.
“We can’t control what people say, but it’s important that he is happy. When he is dissatisfied, he will make a decision,” added the Spanish coach. Haaland returned to the field on Wednesday in the 3-1 victory over Burnley in the Premier League, after a 10-game absence due to a foot injury, and could start the match against Brentford on Monday.
“He played 25 minutes and every transition, every pass, all the players look at him. I know how important he is for us. We are trying to keep all the attackers happy, especially him, and it will depend on how we play.
If we play well, he will get a lot of balls. That’s what we want, and afterward, he will do the rest,” Guardiola stated. City is currently second in the table, five points behind leaders Liverpool with a game in hand.
